About Please Knock


Please Knock is motivated by surprise and delight in interactions.
"Our purpose is to elevate things that were once thought of as taboo - to the artistic level where they truly can be appreciated for the genius they are. Sharing these “dirty” discoveries, providing people with an illicit thrill is our prerogative."

We take the role of curator, guide, and entertainer, providing valuable, humorous narrative, education, and context for erotic art. Please Knock was created to satisfy a desire we had found unfulfilled anywhere else; tasteful, erotic art that is elevated and accessible.

Please Knock Newsletter & Blog

The current state of restricted free expression and suppression of erotic art online was the main motivator for the creation of the PLEASE KNOCK Newsletter & Blog.  Subscribing to our Newsletter gives you access to our newest additions. Articles feature the history of erotic art, interviews with smut collectors, exclusive links to rare footage and video; such as the first pornographic cartoon ever made.

What sets PLEASE KNOCK apart are the photos attached to the articles. They are rare high quality scans often unavailable online, provided with NO censorship. We show EVERYTHING! You can subscribe here

Please Knock Erotic Art Fair & Exhibition

We aim to provide a forum where artists can display their uncensored work free from the suffocating censorship by social media restrictions. Our community has now grown to include volunteer writers, event coordinators, editors, artists and members of the erotic art scene. Unlike television and film, the internet treats all erotic art as pornographic. These extreme constraints serve to punish creators and erase great art works. The current restrictions stifle the genius of artists who fear stigma and suppression. To combat this, the PLEASE KNOCK collective had decided to create the Erotic Art Fair & Exhibition together with some of the most influential and talented members of the art community. This first-of-its-kind event had been an opportunity to show support for these artists and help sustain initiatives that kept the erotic art community alive.
