Antidote Magazine's Romance issue features a lustful spread, titled 'The Redroom,' by photographer Cuneyt Akeroglu. Alongside creative director Yann Weber, Akeroglu explored the evolution of sexuality, from forgotten romanticism to modern day sexual experimentation.

The spread encapsulates elements of surrealism, fantasy, sexual play and sadomasochism within the erotically charged space of the red room. One shot features a model bound and suspended in an intricate rope arrangement. Another photograph makes a biblical reference with a nude model entangled with a serpent. The fluffier shots feature artfully placed clouds and butterfly props.

The provocative editorial features models Lara Stone, Daisy Lowe, Natasha Poly and Daphne Groeneveld, among others, posing in the nude. Managing to be simultaneously thought-provoking and erotic, 'The Redroom' is a must-see.
