What I like about the Shunga pictures are the embraces. I don’t care for the explicit bodyparts that also were on show, but more the warmth and love in the embraces. The shapes that are made by the arms that are wrapped around each other. Also, I really like the prints on their clothes; lots of stripes, dots and flowers!
