Cool X-Rays Show Couples Cuddling Like You've Never Seen Them BeforeS

Normally cuddling is more, uh, cushiony and soft and not so—um, skeletal? Well, if you want to put the uglies into PG-rated bumping uglies, these x-ray portraits of cuddling couples from Saiko Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi of Musashino Art University do just that.

Created using a CT scanner and an X-ray machine, the students won a Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award for this very interesting, slightly disturbing work. "X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter," say the duo. "But these couples portraits reveal a pulse that isn't normally seen." Deeeeeeeep.
