Red. Aggressive, available, and raw. It is the symbol of fire and blood, evoking health, passion, and erotic conquest. The sexualized image of a successful, powerful woman in modern social scenario almost always contains the sexy red dress, designer handbag, dangerously high heels, and the clandestine visit to the powder room.

Each highly erotic symbol of success and sexual power echoes an essential element in the dance of desire. Children are the physicality of this erotic tango fulfilled, the lifelong legacy of a moment’s passion and power play. Then what? Carried about for public appearances. Hung up on the wall to admire, to desire.
