When you think of honey, what comes to mind? Is it a perfectly sweetened spot of tea? Your special someone calling your attention? Winnie the Pooh? Kanye West and Kim Kardashian making love on a motorcycle?

If you hold any of those honey associations dear, we suggest you stop reading now. Because after seeing photographer Blake Little's newest series "Preservation," any utterance of the word honey will quickly conjure images like this.

Or this.

honey

Not that we're complaining.

For the unconventionally delicious NSFW shoot, Little enlisted actors contacted partly from Craigslist for what he only described as an "art project." Once they arrived, he invited all parties to disrobe and get personal with the ooey gooey substance in a seriously beautiful way. The project, made between 2012 and 2014, endeavors to show that honey is not only a delicious and healthy sweetener but a hypnotic material in itself -- at once viscous, slow, sticky, smooth, glowing and golden.

See Little's delicious experiment in person from March 7 until April 18 at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles. Uh huh, honey.
