I love this drawing by Alfred Kubin.
It reminds me of this scene from Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I used to have a lot of sexual fantasies about being taken by a hairy beast or werewolves but they disappeared after my therapy treatment. Although I still like body hair. And wilderness. And animalistic energy. Perhaps I’m not that cured after all.

Mia — practice, practice, practice “healthy-mindedness”. . .wishing you the very best
I think your art is extraordinary. . .tw
one last thing — to quote your own statement:
“I really have to unsubscribe to darkness from now on, it just makes me ill.”
Hi Tisa! Nice to meet you! 🙂
And yes I know, to keep the darkness out, it’s something I’m constantly working on because when all you know is darkness it’s easy to feel at home in it. But I was trying to be funny when I said I might not be cured from my werewolf fantasy, because liking body hair, animalistic energy is a healthy and natural thing to me. It’s part of human sexuality.
And thank you for your kind words about my art!!
looks like paraphilia to me. . .best of luck in your recovery. . .
No, that’s a judgmental accusation. I write about art, sexuality and overcoming trauma, in a very honest and sincere way that makes me vulnerable and exposed. I don’t do it to attract judgments but to expose the human soul, mind, heart and it doesn’t make me sick or obscure. We all have our perversions, dark spots and flaws. I am not a paraphiliac, or into beastiality or into having sex with monsters or beasts. Fantasies are fantasies and they should not be judged. The theme of the beauty and the Beast in an erotic sense is a very old fantasy. The eroticism with humans and animals is a very famous subject in art as well, Leda and the Swan, is a good example. It doesn’t make the artists, writers, poets sick or perverted. It is also part of the modern culture, if you ever watched True Blood you know what I am talking about. A lot of hot human/werewolf sex. It made me aroused as fuck but it doesn’t make me a sick person.
You are welcome to think anything you want about me and my art and writing but there is no room for judgments,accusations or spreading negative energy here in my digital house.
The definition of “Fantasy” . . . the faculty or activity of imagining things, especially things that are impossible or improbable.
“Healthy-mindedness” is “the tendency which looks on all things and sees that they are good.”
And even though “Fantasies” are “impossible or improbable,” It seems to me that they are closer to reality than “Healthy-mindedness.”
