Graphite Stallions

New life drawing group throws naughty art parties

How do you throw a bachelorette party if you're a Charlotte but you wish you were a Samantha? Sexy life drawing, courtesy of a gang of perfectly sculpted (by the gym, naturally) male models, and the women behind startup Graphite Stallions. As wedding season begins, the new group offers bawdy private life drawing sessions that leave nothing to the imagination.

Also offering birthday, gay bachelor, retirement, and divorce parties, plus snacks, Graphite Stallions have set up their easels conveniently close to Queen Street West at Artscape Youngplace, and charge $65 per guest - a step up from the usual fees at regular (though still sometimes sexy - see Dr. Sketchy's) Toronto life drawing sessions.

I asked co-founders Martha Malloy and Kirstin Bojanowski how they chose their visual stimulants. "We hire models and actors who have the total package using casting calls and personal interviews. Each candidate is carefully evaluated based on "PECS", our rigorous model standards: Professional, Easy on the Eyes, Charming, Sophisticated." Resume fodder if I ever heard.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but what happens at Graphite Stallions may last longer than your vows. Learn more on their website.
