Art is sexy

Who's to blame for Catholic priests being sex criminals? Why, the painters of masterpieces that have subliminal sex images all over them!

More sexy art from painter Egon Schiele, as recently described in The Nation:

The theme of mother and child has a considerable history in Western art, from Venus and Eros to the Madonna and the Christ Child, but there is nothing to compare with Schiele's study. ... It is very much as if they are lovers--hardly a posture that would have occurred to anyone had the idea of infantile sexuality not been in the air.

Check out Mother and Child (1910)
