The Tome Of Carnal Knowledge

By MartinVanners  
"In the streets, her flamingo coloured hair enticed me to speak to her. Clearly impressed by my physical appearance, she agreed to join me in an inn of reputable standing. As is becoming of a lady of class, she inquired about my wealth. After we agreed to trade an amount that satisfied her inquisition, she started to undo the strings of my codpiece.

I had great plans for her, but as I showed her the tome of carnal knowledge, she fled in dismay! Although this ancient Indian book did not feature positions for a lonely participant, the illustrations tickled my imagination enough to stretch my undergarment..."


Meet Wolfram von Eschenbach, last living descendant of his namesake, the 13th Century knight-poet Wolfram von Eschenbach, who fought alongside count Herman von Thuringen in the third Crusades. This is the story of a knight forsaken, misplaced in time and space. I took it upon myself to document Wolfram’s ongoing struggle to be accepted by society. His wayward reluctance to adapt leaves him feeling unwanted and insecure. Like any modern day knight he longs for a life of normality, fitting in and maybe, to find love. Over the next years, I will attempt to unveil the man behind the armour. To show everyone there is a place for Urban Knights in our society.

Thanks John! It was shot in an abandoned mansion in downtown Antwerp, one of the coolest urbex places I've ever been!

Brilliant! As is the whole series. I wish we had abandoned places like that near here!!!

Tanya....avert your gaze! There are no budgies being smuggled here. Grin

Haha, my apologies for the bulged Superman undies. I wasn't sure to tick the "adult content" box, blur that part of the image, of just leave it as is. I think women will appreciate my choice of the last option Smile

Dave, I'd already seen the budgie smugglers so (a) yeah, whatever - seen it all before anyway and (b) I haven't gone blind, so I think I'm old enough to deal with it Wink

Another brilliant mixture of history meets modern society meets humour, Martijn. You may well have a very (unique) twisted mind, but it's working for me Grin
It's not just my twisted mind, Tanya: The guy that poses as Wolfram is my close friend Andress. We come up with stuff together (usually over a beer). "Hey, I think Wolfram wants to get laid, but he is way to clumsy to score a date. Let's have him hire a high-class prostitute!". "Nice! What if she turns him and his money down after he shows her some freaky stuff from the Kama Sutra?". And there we go, another adventure is born Smile

I come up with the location and composition and create the image, while Andress writes the narratives to each one. We make a good team ;^)

You do indeed Smile
I knew that he wrote the narratives for the images, but hadn't realised he was actually the "Wolfram" character ...

'Budgie smugglers' and 'Lady lumps' Smile, but nothing beats 'Peanut smuggling'. Just typing that makes me smile! GrinGrinGrin
