Marilyn Minter’s legendary work concentrates on working with, and taking pictures of, the mouth, tongue and saliva in a very sexual manner to say the least.

Minter takes common innocent objects like bubble gum and turns them into an orgy of sensual delight with the help of a model's mouth and some stellar photography.

Implications - The nature of sexuality is changing with today's more open-minded generation, with some things that were once not perceived as sensual serving as the focal point of racy imagery. An example is Marilyn Minter's oral fixation photography, which shows a pair of slightly parted lips. This signifies an appreciation for the more subtly sensual parts of the human body.
