In 1984, ToFF, the nonprofit, 501(c)(3) Educational Archive was established.
As Tom (Touko Laaksonen) had achieved worldwide recognition
as the master of homo-erotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose
was to preserve his vast catalog of work.
Several years later the scope was widened to offer a safe haven for all erotic art
in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or
generated a sexual response.
Today the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public
as to the cultural merits of erotic art and in promoting
healthier, more tolerant attitudes about sexuality.

HONOR THOSE WHO CREATE AND INSPIRE
Benoît Prévot (French)
Prévot is a French illustrator and comic artist that creates stylish homo-erotica. He studied in the EMSAT (Municipal School of Art and Technics). The artist says, “My favorite medium is ink and graphite on paper, because I work a lot in black and white and I like the firm contact of the pencil on the paper. I’m trying to make oil now. It is a new pleasure, but this is not so easy to work on as a soft surface with a pencil that is soft too. When I want to do a new drawing with something fun in it, in connection with eroticism, I start to find an idea, a situation. I think then I make sketches and after that I start the piece. I used to draw the peoples most of the time with my imagination. I have models who pose for me sometimes and this is how I really like to work.”
