As if from the comfort of her own home, she meanders among pieces that appear to be playing the balancing act. Take the ‘Club’ Table, with its play on transparency, and the ‘Skittle’ Table, bearing the mineral hallmark of petrified wood. Sheet after sheet of metal, fearlessly witty shapes… There’s an eloquent and facetious eroticism to Philippe Hiquili’s furniture and sculptures.

What does "eroticism" mean in this context please?
