“There is an entire generation growing up that
believes that what you see in hard core pornography is the way that you have sex”
Cindy Gallop/Make Love Not Porn/TED 2009
I think my guardian angel has porn sex when she’s not watching me.
Therefore, a warning:
This episode addresses the art of sex
And this is my game-show hand technique.
I don’t think that game shows will be an option.
This is not your Father’s pornography
But first, would you like fries with that porn?
A message received two weeks ago.
“I have stopped counting how many times you have said ‘Make
Art Not Porn’ in these films. So what is Porn? I know what pornography is. Trust me, I have even
explained it in a huge debate on what is the difference between softcore and hardcore pornography.
I can even lecture in it in schools. You promote the Future Sex Love Art Project while all I see is a
one woman show. You say make art, not porn, while I only see a peep show. Sex implies two people
doing it. Your stuff is more modelling shoots done artistically. That is not art.

My rebuttal. Do you give a fuck?
Giving a fuck about the concept of conditioned response.

My alternative to porn?
Turn up the truth. Because truth kills shame.
For example, when I have sex…
I become a different person and go to another place.
This film is about that person & one of those places.
Sex & Love at once is a powerful thing. But when in doubt, fantasize.
That’s how I escape from me.
For instance, this is me having sex, while trying to roll a joint.
But that’s not interesting.
What is interesting is what I was thinking while having sex.
Let me take you deep into my sexually twisted mind.
10 minutes earlier, lying on the couch naked with a collar & chain on (as you do in a Monday night).
I imagined lying on a beach naked while rolling a joint
and a naked man comes up behind me
all stealthy like
and starts having mad anonymous sex with me
and I just ignore what is going on and be
all super cool like (Fuck Yeah)
and continue to roll the joint, ‘cause that shit is important.
1st Orgasm: 45 Seconds
And then rolling the joint gets forgotten a little.
Lots of people on the beach are watching.
Everyone is shocked and pointing
but he keeps pushing forward like a good soldier
and I keep letting him like a good whatever I am.
OOOPS. 2nd Orgasm 1 Min 19 Sec
And then I do something very shameful (Fuck Yeah).
I get up on my hands and knees
so that everyone can see what is happening and that I am enjoying it. Oh good God yes.
Encouraging it even,
while still rolling a joint.
Showing a great deal of focus.
But all the people staring don’t seem to appreciate my ability to focus.
They seem to be telling something,
that I’m some word starting with S…
Oh well…. More shame please Mr. Anonymous man.
Here it comes. 3rd Orgasm: 2 Min 23 Sec
And all those people would see me, because I made them see me
The only way I knew how,
and for that moment, I wasn’t invisible.

Looking behind my conditioned sexual responses
“We all get addicted to something that takes away the pain”
Trauma is shapeless. We may not even know it is there. It creeps and shapes who we think we are,
so that who we think we are becomes our reality, and that reality is very hard to change. For some
reason, my emerging sexual-self went underground and made myself invisible in the real world. Yet
paradoxically, my sexual excitement comes from being seen – shamefully.
That’s a head scratcher isn’t it.
Perhaps it’s as simple as… I wasn’t seen or loved for who I was. Or maybe it was something else.
One moment please.
4th Orgasm: 4 mins 12 sec
Imagine a little girl. She is sitting with her mother, playing on the floor. The mother abruptly stands
up and walks out of the room leaving the child alone. This may be traumatic for the child if she has
been made dependent on the mother for her self-esteem.
But it does not cause shame.
Shame may be caused in that instant that her mother walks back into the room and the infant looks
up and seeks validation from her mother through facial expression and is met with… nothing.
What if this happened all the time and the mother was naked and flaunting her sexuality in front of
That might explain some stuff maybe.
My aliveness comes from being seen, being seen naked by people on a beach. Being seen as a sexual
being. Forcing them to see me. Being seen in the films that are this project.
I wonder if she sees me now?
Do I smell popcorn?

Maybe some girls are not meant to be tamed.
Maybe they are supposed to run wild
until they find someone just as wild
to run with.
