100% of Artist Series proceeds go directly to LGTBQIA+ Non-Profits
Happy Pride Month, Lovers! In honor of Pride 2021, we are so excited to announce the Lovers Artist Series: Pride Edition.
The Lovers Artist Series: Pride Edition featured the commissioned work of 10 LGBTQIA+ visual artists. In celebration of Pride and pleasure, Lovers commissioned this diverse group to create pieces of art that capture visually what “orgasm” feels like, looks like, and what it means to them.
We created the Lovers Artist Series: Pride Edition to amplify the work of inspiring and transformative Queer artists, as well as to support non-profit organizations focused on serving the LGBTQIA+ community. At Lovers, we’re committed to creating safe and inclusive spaces for all people to be their authentic selves. This series is provocative and allows for continued conversations around visibility, acceptance, and the complexity of pleasure and identity.
We asked the public to help curate our first Artist Series collection by voting for their favorite piece of orgasm art. The 3 artists whose work inspired the most votes are Jenifer Prince, Jacq Frances, and Mazahir Hussain! The selected artists will each receive an additional $1000 to further honor their work.
Print replicas of the 3 chosen artists’ Orgasm art are now available to purchase on our website until July 9th, 2021! All proceeds from the sale of the prints will go to Lambda Legal and APLA Health. You can own a piece of Orgasm Art while supporting the work of these important non-profits.
Lambda Legal is a 501(c)(3) national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people, and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work.
APLA Health is a California-based organization committed to achieving health care equity and promoting the well-being of the LGBT and other underserved communities and people living with and affected by HIV.
Lovers has been a fearless leader of the sex positive and sexual wellness movement for over 40 years. With 41 stores nationwide, our central mission is to educate, empower, and inspire people to celebrate their pleasure.

Jacq Francis: Brooklyn, New York
“[Orgasm is] thunderous applause from myself for myself (and perhaps to other romantic partners, but not necessarily).”
Jenifer Prince: Sao Paulo, Brazil
“ [Orgasm is] one of the ways we can connect with someone and with ourselves.”
Mazahir Hussain: Birmingham, United Kingdom
Mazahir is a South-Asian illustrator with a background in creative writing. Through his art, he works to create representation of brown bodies experiencing romantic love, and break the connection between body hair and sexual aggressiveness. This piece was inspired by the “afterglow” of sex as a dreamy limbo between sexual rush and coming back to real time.
