Ticket to Ride
Milo Manara is one of the most renowned erotic artists of our time. Still active, he is a master for many illustrators and comic artists, though his influence can be spotted beyond, in films, fashion and advertising. He states "I draw to tell stories, I draw because it’s my job, I draw for fun, I draw because of the passion I feel for it: in the end, I draw because I belong to the human race and I can’t help but do it…" Among his most renowned titles are 'Click', 'Le parfum de l'invisible' and 'The Adventures of Giuseppe Bergman'.
When I was a school kid, there was a joke about a newly married couple on the train to their holiday destination. To keep it short, after the bride was able to discreetly sit on the groom’s lap, after establishing that the other passengers were all going to the same destination, the groom was able to bounce her up and down a few times, exclaiming “We’re all going to Blackpool!”
I have often fantasized about having sex in the carriage of a train. All those nice seats and racks to hold on to. And maybe being discovered by a ticket inspector… who goes to open the compartment door and then watches for a while before joining the action. This with the added excitement of everyone wanting to arrive at respective destinations before reaching the terminus… I have never seen any erotic scenes filmed on a train. Maybe it’s time for us to correct that…
