Definition - What does Odalisque mean?

Odalisque refers to a specific type of eroticized art in which a female lies on her side for the viewer. The term comes from the French term for chambermaid. It originally referred to female slaves or concubines in a Turkish harem. The term may also refer to a mistress of a wealthy man.

Kinkly explains Odalisque

The term odalisque is often used to describe a position that is sexually suggestive. It typically means the female is either totally nude or half nude while lying on her side in a way that puts her on display for the spectator. This is a position that is seen often in art as well as in the media. In some cases, the term is used as a synonym for mistress or concubine.

  • I'm kind of a good girl - and I'm not. I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That's what the stories in my music do.
