Soapy Fun features one of Rasmus The Owl’s recurring models: Tsukiko Yoshihara. With her, there’s already plenty to feast our eyes on. However, what impressed me about the piece is the subtle hints Ramsus uses to increase sensuality. The details that lie literally on the edges give away the hidden scenario he tries to illustrate.
Without a doubt, Tsukiko enjoys her bath. Her perky nipples draw attention to those popping tits. Furthermore, the closed eyes and parted lips impart exactly the kind of euphoria she’s in. However, if we un-glue our eyes from the babe, we’ll notice that Tsukiko is actually bathing out in the open! The grass and gravel off to the right edge and the shower curtain only covering her back give it away.
It’s very likely that exhibitionism is what turns Tsukiko on, which is why she bathes outdoors. Suddenly, a typical (yet sultry) masturbation piece takes on a deeper level of sensuality. The idea of being hidden and private is what gives showers and baths a certain sex appeal. However, Rasmus turns it on its head. Adding the element of exhibitionism opens our imagination to a ton of possibilities.
We can fantasize that she’s putting on a show for those peeping on her. Better yet, she’s so lost in ecstasy she’s unaware of the neighbors jerking off to her perfect form. The very practice that keeps us clean has now taken a turn for the dirty and kinky. This dual theme is perfectly illustrated by Rasmus The Owl and it’s one of his few pieces that shows subtlety.
