Another season of the charitable virtual exhibition Summer Sexy is underway, bringing together a collection of of titillating works from contemporary artists selected by curators, other artists, collectors and "people who should know"—all proceeds of sales go to a variety of noble causes. Regular updates to the ongoing sale through 7 September 2009 make it easy to lay claim on some of the hottest pieces from up-and-coming artists.

For example Marc Dennis' girl-gone-wild work "American Tourist in Rome" (pictured below left) benefits the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, providing help for African elephants orphaned by poachers.

Other noted talents include Chicago artist Damara Kaminecki whose playful “Being Koi” (pictured above) helps out a cause to feed the hungry in his city.

While purely an online affair, two very real, brick-and-mortar NYC galleries, Winkleman and Schroeder Romero are sponsoring the online exhibit.
