This November, realize that we have more than two options.
From bathroom bills to transvaginal ultrasounds, our private parts are increasingly the topic of public debate, usually with the aim of reinforcing control of a binary. But genitalia shouldn’t be legislated into two prescribed boxes. Genitalia is weird, and it should be fun. We’ve noticed artists embracing new forms, prosthesis, and ways of representing the uglies we bump.
From Saul Chernick’s vagina mounds to Sophia Park’s cock cages, and Jonathan Monaghan’s machine sex virtually no genitalia goes untouched or unexamined. And, in this survey, that’s exactly as it should be.
