1989, a digital sex change by Chris Wayan
Not a very accomplished sketch, I admit, but it's not as naked as it looks... It's porn with an idea hidden inside. See, I based its awkward pose on a real photo from an old Playboy from the 1970s, showing a woman tranced out and writhing, all cosmically orgasmic, the way everything from romance-novel covers to modern porn shows women in sex, but NOT men, who are always shown way more businesslike and instrumental.
Okay, maybe YOU see men surrendering like this, but I don't. Media blackout! Or do guys just not do this?
So I sketched this woman all focused and butch, petting a GUY who's in the blissful, limp, rubbery pose from that Playboy photo. I think it looks even more unnatural with a man arching his back like that, arms all floppy. Some of that is my crude rendition, but fully half was in the original picture. She'd gone all boneless... Do I do that? Do you?
I have serious doubts that what we get presented by the media, including the most explicit porn, has anything to do with our real behavior... let alone our real feelings.
