Visual Orgasms – Waterfall

Abstract:
Filmic media has put pressure on sex to be visually consumable. As a result, pornography is often brightly lit, performed in “unnatural” poses, and, most infamously, ejaculation almost always occurs externally. Hollywood, too, has faced this problem of visualization but for the opposite reason: restraint and censorship. “Visual Orgasms” exaggerates this mandate to ‘make-visible’ by creating excessive moving image collages that depict metaphors for orgasm with no actual depiction of sex.
