How Love Can Inspire Art


Love is a full-body process. From your heart and your mind to your hips and your thighs, love is all-consuming.

Some say it’s spiritual, while others say it’s entirely chemical. Either way, romantic passion, lust, and desire are some of the strongest emotions we possess.

Feelings — just like love — are a full-body process, too. Whether you’re elated, devastated, or craving to be fornicated, you physically feel and react to these emotions.

Such moods wield great power over our physical being. They make us sweat, thirst, shake, they make our hearts race.

And above all else, love, this all-powerful emotion, can inspire incredible artwork.

Take a moment to sit back and reflect on your favorite songs, movies, TV shows, and artwork. How many of them involve love in some way, shape, or form?

Perhaps the plot revolves around two lovers, a potential suitor, or a spicy ex. Or perhaps the painting is a portrait or scene capturing the artist’s dearly beloved.

Now, think about what makes some of your all-time favorite, steady-ride, never-fails-to-satisfy, number-one-go-to, must-always-have-on-hand, bookmarked-starred-favorited pornography so great.

It’s the passion, isn’t it? Why? Because that passion makes it feel more all the more realistic. It appeals to your emotions.

That very same reasoning is why we’re suckers for rom-coms and smutty BDSM novels, too: they speak straight to our hearts.

Love is indirectly implicated in just about everything we do. Our actions are driven by a passion to pursue them. Our greatest stories and sweetest hymns are ripe with romance.

You don’t have to be the next Shakespeare to harness the beauty of love and orchestrate it as a tool for inspiration, either.

Nor is a relationship isn’t necessarily a prerequisite to creating great art inspired by love. You can simply just be thirsty for some D and turn that into the next best-selling book, record, or poster!

How to Let Love Inspire You

Open Yourself to Your Emotions

First and foremost, let your walls fall down. Yes, all the way down. Let them crumble and disintegrate back into the Earth’s crust.

If you want to be inspired by love, you must start by opening yourself to your emotions.

How are you to capture love accurately if you don’t allow yourself to feel it in its entirety? You can’t.

Humor Your Wildest Day Dreams

Once you’ve opened yourself to your emotions, it’s time to get comfortable with them.

How you choose to express your emotions is entirely up to you. For some it’s painting, for others it’s poetry, and for some, it’s a combination of mediums.

Find your voice and project it in every medium you can. Explore your feelings like you’re finger painting; let your process be messy. That’s part of it.

Don’t be afraid to daydream, either. Fantasy opens the floodgates for erotic artwork and forbidden fables to come to fruition.

Share Your Love

Shout it from the rooftops, ring all the church bells in town. Be proud of the love that you feel, regardless of where it comes from or what it’s towards.

By sharing your love inspired artwork — whether it’s a photo shoot or a nude sculpture — you’re doing your part to spread love and positivity in the world.

Furthermore, art immortalizes your love. It captures a moment in time and cements it in place, encasing and protecting it like a resin cast.

In turn, sharing your artwork increases the longevity of the legacy your love leaves behind.

That sacred, intimate experience doesn’t have to end with you two; art has the power to make your love live on in the hearts and imaginations of generations to come.

Just take a look at F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Johnny Depp and Wynona Ryder, Bella and Edward, Kim and Kanye.

Regardless of their ups and downs, twists and turns, and doggy-style moments, their relationships are pop-culture icons that have outlived them or outlived the relationship itself.

In Conclusion

Love is all-consuming and it spreads like wildfires in California.

How love chooses to express itself, be it sexy videos with shitty lighting or letters as long as your arm, is unique to every individual.

This art, made possible by the sheer power of love, immortalizes your feelings and allows your legacy to live on for centuries.

But it all starts with opening your heart to love and getting comfortable with your emotions.
