Over the years, Australian erotic art has evolved through various eras, each reflecting societal attitudes at the time. The colonial era, for example, focused on the exotic "otherness" of the Indigenous people, while modern-day erotic art in Australia explores themes such as BDSM, fetishism, and LGBTQIA+ experiences.
