Vulva, Minge, Cunt, Bosom. Balls, Dick, Cock. Sex, Fuck, Make love, Screw, Sleep with. There are many names for a favourite child. This is a project about sex, conversations and analyses on the theme of sexuality from a female perspective.
Female sexuality is often passed over in silence and understood from the perspective of outmoded gender roles and stereotypical images. I want women to have the right to be horny and to talk about fucking. I want to create a positive space in which there is more room for sexuality and women’s voices. Even though many people today see our society as egalitarian and free, there is still a great deal to do. I have created a ceramics workshop in which women analyse the male gender and talk about sex. Making something as masculine as a dick can be a good introduction to discussion.
It was both important and great fun to invite other creative women to freely examine the theme of sex in my publication. The invited women have had an opportunity to present their own views because this is a theme which we all have different ideas about. It’s the varying points of view that make it interesting even though certain aspects can sometimes be misinterpreted, or considered provocative; or even exactly right!
