The Fetish Of Piquerism

Here’s a blog post ranging further from pure spanking than I usually go, although it does involve doing painful things to a bottom. I stumbled over this image by the fetish artist Carlo (see Footnote 1), and I thought it quirky and interesting enough to share, especially as there’s a ton of other Carlo bondage and spanking art floating around the kinky web. But this, I had never seen before:

kinky bullfighter uses his darts on a chained woman\'s bottom

What’s going on here is a fetish called piquerism. The fellow in the bullfighter costume is using his darts (normally used to antagonize and distract a bull) to prick the bottom of the chained woman. If you thought bullfighting was unfair and mean, you really won’t approve of this!

If you click the image for the larger “original” version as it came to me, there’s a caption suggesting (with the aid of a bit of web research) that the art first illustrated a 1930s book called L’Inquisiteur Moderne by Juana Lapaz.

Footnote 1: I’m dropping this footnote because the best resource I could find on Carlo and his artwork was a Wikipedia page that’s currently flagged for imminent deletion. I refuse to play Wikipedia edit wars with anal-retentive morons, so I decided it would be simpler to preserve the info for posterity in this footnote:

Carlo (born c. 1910) aka Charléno was an anonymous, probably French, fetish and BDSM artist whose works were published in the 1930s. Most of his work has femsub themes. His style was a precursor to that of John Willie.

He illustrated several books, such as ‘Dressage’, ‘Bagne de Femmes’, ‘Servitude’, ‘Dolly, Esclave’, ‘Despotisme Féminin’, ‘Cuir & Fouet’, ‘Dolorès Amazone’, ‘Le Cuir Triomphant’, ‘La Madone du Cuir Verni’, ‘Esclavage’, ‘La Reine Cravache’ (all written by Alan Mac Clyde), ‘L’Inquisiteur Moderne’, ‘Sévérités Perverses’ (all by Juana Lapaz), ‘Le Dominateur’ (all by Aimé Van Rod), ‘Cinglantes Épreuves’, ‘Le Chateau des Cuisants Souvenirs’, ‘Brûlants Plaisirs’ (all by Désiré Van Rowel) and many other titles in the sado-masochistic genre.

Carlo also contributed to magazine Humour under the name Charléno. The real name behind those pseudonyms is unknown to us.

    The wikipedia article has been deleted, but we still have the spanking art wiki article: and Biblio Curiosa also has an article on him:
