Ero guro . Nonsense can also be erotic

Ero guro . nonsense can also be erotic
I was surfing on the net looking for pics and icons and I ended up on some images that depict the Japanese movements of Ero Guro Nansensu. Characterized by a style which in itself is grotesque and erotic, this term describes a literary and artistic movement from 1920s and ’30s developed in Japan; the concept focuses on eroticism, sexual corruption and decadence, though in recent years has been connected to horror scenes and blood, a distant meaning from the original vision.

Some characters are strange creatures who have sex with humans, in an act that is violent rather than tied to real pleasure, situations in which the woman is deprived of respect and elegance to become a puppet of perverse acts devoid of any romance.
