‘Hard Body’ | Katya By Igor Oussenko For Treats! Magazine | Summer 2013
by Kate Van Raden
Here is another smokin’ exclusive shoot from Treats! Magazine. This was lensed by Igor Oussenko for the online edition of their publication. I have the privilege of occasionally curating for them, and there are few publications that I believe are breaking ground on a new frontier of sexual revolution like they are.
On the cusp of releasing their 6th edition, Treats! pursues their legacy of fulfilling a niche market that I believe has existed for some time now; and it’s a very exciting thing to be a part of. There is an increasing public outcry from a younger demographic that no longer desires or appreciates the tawdry and vulgar character of skin publications from American archives. Magazines like Hustler and Playboy are losing their clout as the most sexually liberal multimedia; as a more refined sexual medium emerges. These days, many men and women are discovering/cultivating an appreciation for the reverence and idolatry with which sexuality is being epitomized by the likes of Treats! Magazine and its peers (Polanski Magazine, Darius Magazine, etc.). The novelty of ‘cheap sex’ which so appealed when society enforced more prudent moral values, is now (in an age of rampant, hedonistic vulgarity) giving way to a widespread yearning for the refinement and sophistication of our sensual and sexual palette. This is a movement that we back and believe in here at The Libertine.
This editorial is no exception. It presents nudity and sensuality in an artistic boutique form; never sacrificing superior artistry or first class realization in the name of mass production/profit. Enjoy!
