I've done other pieces in the past that were sexually explicit. I know they're not popular with everyone, and that some think a work like Drained goes “too far”. And that’s okay. But while society likes to censor out “the sex” and keep it locked in a separate dirty little box, it would just seem odd for me to paint all these naked men and completely ignore it. So occasionally, I like to put the sex “in your face” - another title I considered. Besides, why should I censor myself? Others will be only too glad to do that for me.
