Video: Coloring Pages For Adults: What Only These Smart People Will Not Come Up With
Coloring books for adults have reached their peak. It is now almost normal to walk into a cafe and see a grown woman with her colored pencils. Research has shown that they help reduce anxiety and stress. But think about it: was there really an adult-only coloring book? This is what Sarah McDonnell came up with when she began analyzing similar products at a local bookstore.
“These are amazing books with beautiful pictures of animals,” says SELF, a 26-year-old London consultant. “And I can really understand why adults get involved in this. But if it was me, I really wanted something more mature."
Her solution: a real adult coloring book filled with drawings of a couple having sex. And the start was taken from the fact that the author began to portray a man and a woman in different poses, recalling examples from her own experience, the sexual life of her friends and even the poses of the "Kamasutra".
For example, the illustration "Power of Nature" comes from a friend's story about sex in the garden. And the "office" drawing tells about a case when a familiar couple was making love right next to the copier.
In January, she published a book on the Internet called "Fill Me In". And she started selling the paper version for £ 15. At the moment, hundreds of copies of the publication have been sold. And the author hopes that the funny book will help people talk more openly about sex.
McDonnell is currently working on a same-sex version of "Fill Me In", which he plans to release for Gay Pride in London on June 25th. She also created a desktop version of her original illustrations in the form of a calendar in case you want to take a short break from work.
