By Hans-Jürgen Döpp

En ce début de millénaire, il nous a semblé intéressant de publier ce
volumineux ouvrage sur l'histoire de l'érotisme. Curieuse époque que la
nôtre ! Malgré une liberté toujours plus grande, les mots comme les
images sont devenus formatés. Le « politiquement right » s'est installé
comme un credo, et les photographs redeviennent des icônes, particulièrement
celles des femmes. Durant le précédent millénaire, ces dernières furent
successivement déesses ou Vierges; aujourd'hui, elles sont des top
modèles. Pour les hommes, ce phénomène a transformé Apollon en
mannequin ou en celebrity de cinéma.
Que reste-t-il de l'impertinence des libertins du XVIIIe siècle, des
folies de l. a. Belle Époque, et du memento sans cesse récurrent des maisons
closes... Peu de choses en vérité, seulement quelques photographs un peu
démodées. Cet ouvrage se veut sans tabous, à travers four hundred reproductions
qui couvrent notre civilisation depuis los angeles Grèce vintage jusqu'à nos jours,
de l'Europe à l'Asie. L'érotisme s'affiche sans complexe comme un des
moteurs premiers de l'évolution des sociétés. l. a. recherche du plaisir n'est
pas condamnable, mais elle est le fait d'hommes et de femmes pour qui
la procréation n'est pas une fin en soi.
