Primal Instinct: Andy Warhol's Steamiest Work On Auction At Christie's

Andy Warhol had a creative side that was much sexier than soup, and it's being displayed and auctioned at Christie's this month in honor of Gay Pride.

The auction, starting today and ending June 27, includes work that has never been seen by the public before, with some pieces starting at $800. Head here (link somewhat NSFW) for the complete auction.
