SAN FRANCISCO — Tickle.life has announced the launch of its NFT project, Carnal Chemistry, described by a rep as "an experiment at the intersection of human sexuality, visual art and ‘on chain’ provenance to de-stigmatize erotic art."
Carnal Chemistry will collaborate with global artists to release a collection of over 100 one-of-a-kind art pieces with “on chain” provenance, exploring a specific dimension of human sexuality.
The collection seeks inspiration from the Kama Sutra, an ancient Indian text about sexuality and the alchemy of desire.
“Human sexuality has always found its most beautiful expression in visual arts through sculptures, paintings, literature, poetry, music and other art forms,” the rep explained. “Over the centuries, people have celebrated sexuality in different ways. But, in the past few decades, stigma, censorship and taboo have taken a front-row seat in suppressing erotic art. Due to this, erotic art forms started to lose their values and take up a pornographic outlook. Even in the digital era, censorship of erotic works continues across platforms affecting their true artistic expression.”
Carnal Chemistry will be listing artworks in the Ethereum blockchain on OpenSea.
"As part of this initiative, multi blockchain was introduced to evaluate the best eco-friendly blockchain while providing the buyers and artists more options for liquidity,” the rep added.
For debut collection “The Kamasutra,” Carnal Chemistry has collaborated with artists from India (Suvrojit Chuadhury), Chile (Romy Froemel), the U.S. (Omar Safi), Turkey (Cheweji), Spain (Jenya Datsko), Russia (Sonya Capricado) and France (Julie Mancini).
Shakun Sethi, founder of Tickle.life, said, “NFTs are the future and we at Tickle.life have always taken the effort to support sex positivity. Carnal Chemistry is a project that endeavors to bring in equal opportunities for erotic artists. Here, at the same time, we strive to find an optimal eco-friendly blockchain, while in the process of providing multiple avenues for artists and their patrons.”
As part of the NFT initiative, Tickle.life is partnering with Adam & Eve and Sssh.com to provide free subscriptions and other offers for the buyers and the artists in the project.
