Cross-stitch porn

A Brisbane artist has merged pornography with cross-stitch in a way that has improved both things considerably more than if they were separate. The cross-stitch lends an air of respectability to the pornography while the pornography offsets the fuddy-duddy image of cross stitch.

The artist’s name is Leah Emery and she explains how she got started in cross-stitch porn in this video:

  1. I’m wondering how you found this article. 🙂 Leah seems quite talented at ‘painting’ pictures with cross stitch. Can’t say I’m particularly interested in the subject matter though.

    1. She’s very talented! I agree. It’s such a strange combination – cross-stitch and pornography – and the way she got started so unusual. She’d never done any cross-stitch before at all and I imagine that using cross-stitch to create people must be quite difficult. I think her scenes are based on vintage porn which to my knowledge – and I’m certainly no expert! – is tamer than the stuff around today.

      1. having just googled her, and found 2 galleries with images of her work… that ‘vintage porn’ was not very tame!

  2. Knit one, pearl one, porn one. Do be careful with that needle. It’s always nice to see people thinking ouside of the box (and other restraints). 🙂
