The first time I saw a nun, I was 6 years old.
Groggy from the anesthesia after surgery,I began to scream.

"Mom! There's a witch in my room!" (Catholic hospital. Nun nurse.)

My poor mother was quite embarrassed. The nurse/nun quietly left the room,
and let my mom try to explain what a nun was. My young, ignorant, medicated brain
couldn't grasp much at that time.

Anyway, here are some nuns in Pakistan:

As I already posted this cool image with details, it wasn't too difficult to find and fulfill your request for the artist's name. (Just in time for shark week, too.)

After Much Prayer, Nuns Decide to Join Lady Gaga’s Record Label - TIME NewsFeed [article]

excerpt:
Decca Records, the division of Universal Records that is responsible for Lady Gaga, Eminem and Amy Winehouse, has just signed their newest group—a secluded order of Benedictine nuns.

The record company, who has been looking to replicate their success when they signed a group of Austrian monks in 2008, selected the nuns from more than 70 groups vying for the deal from around the world. The nuns, who live in a convent near Avignon, France,are reportedly skilled in Gregorian Chant.

Since the nuns are secluded, the recording of all tracks will take place inside the convent, as well as the shooting of the album cover. The Reverend Mother Abbess has said of the signing: “At first we were worried it would affect out cloistered life, so we asked St Joseph in prayer. Our prayers were answered, and we thought that this album would be a good thing if it touches people's lives and helps them find peace.”

Love Train for the Tenebrous Empire: Clovis Trouille's Nun Art


The art of surrealist painter Clovis Trouille employs a catalog of highly personal imagery, plucked from sources ranging from Catholic iconography to advertising to erotica/pornography. One of the themes that runs through Trouille's work is that of the sexualized nun.


above piece:
"Dialogue au Carmel," 1944, featured at the Guggenheim in NYC.

Observation: I still don't get why the strict and obscene (I'm sure there's a better word for 'bawdy') NSFW label has to be observed here.
I get that a few posts are suggestive, but there's still no nudity, and that's my own interpretation of what needs the NSFW label
(and dozens upon of re-utterances of sexual organs, but that is just moi; plus, I don't know who I'm winning over and/or pissing off by stating this, but 'NSFW' is a little nym I hate to encounter).

Sexy Ads Upset the Pope - Racy Equinox Fitness Ad (VIDEO) [article]

The latest (as in two years ago) in buzzworthy ads is the new Equinox Fitness ad campaign, “Happily Ever.” One image features a group of nuns (one revealing a sexy garter!) sketching a still life portrait of a very chiseled, naked model who looks much like Michelangelo’s David. Judging by their facial expressions, they’re quite amused by the features of their manly muse.

Rightfully entitled ‘Dark Habits,’ the Ashley Smith Dedicate June 2010 editorial is taking racy nun photography to a whole new level. Sacrilegious spreads have been appearing in several different publications and stirring up controversy, but there’s no denying it’s growing popularity.

In the Ashley Smith Dedicate June 2010 editorial, this model is featured wearing either nothing at all or a full-on nun attire. With rosary beads, a black-and-white theme and cigarettes in every shot, this is one racy spread that you can’t help loving.

Nun publishes tell-all detailing forced lesbian relationships in convent. [news article ; expose]

excerpt:
Quote:
A former nun's tell-all story which details illicit relationships, sexual harassment and bullying in the convent where she spent three decades is causing ructions in the Catholic Church in the south Indian state of Kerala.


In Amen – an autobiography of a nun, Sister Jesme says when she became a nun she discovered priests were forcing novices to have sex with them. There were also secret homosexual relationships among the nuns and at one point she was forced into such a relationship by another nun who told her she preferred this kind of arrangement as it ruled out the possibility of pregnancy.

"I did not want to make this book controversial. I want to express my feelings and to explain what happened to me... I want people to know how I have suffered," she told The Independent last night, speaking from the town of Kozhikode. "People say that everything is OK, but I was in the convent and I want them to know what goes on. I have concerns for others."

Near Death, Nuns Contemplate the Other Side

Photographer Mae Ryan interviews the Sisters of the Convent of Mary the Queen, a home for aging nuns in Yonkers, N.Y.


Do you consider yourself married to God?
Sister Jude: Yes. I don't use that term, marriage, but I belong to God. I'm trying to do his work a little extra.
I don't think I'm any better than anyone else, but I'm trying my best.



Do you think about death?
Sister Rita: Yes, I do. I used to be frightened at the thought of death, and then all of a sudden one day,
I didn't have that fear, and since then I haven't had that fear. It's like you're going home, which is what you're here for.
God gives you to your parents, they help you to grow, but that's not the end. The end is when God calls you home.

Word of advice: (* -) I'd probably implore you not to seek out the DVDrip to this film, at this time.


-- (to note: yes: the above movie actually exists, and more incredulously, it actually wants to falls under the umbrella classification of a nunsploitation film.)
