Pussy

When walking down the street holding hands with another woman I have experienced more than once that men approach me, telling me – apparently unscrupulously – that me and my girlfriend just need some dick.

This behavior seems so extreme to me. So I decided to explore if I was able to act like that as well and how I would feel about it. I also wanted to see what happens when you expose the majority to a behavior that minorities sometimes has to live with, thus investigating into whether or not the behavior appears more offensive when directed towards the majority. As a minority it seems you get used to tolerating more – simply because you’re underrepresented and thereby more visible.

This study resulted in the video ‘Pussy’  in wich I approach a random heterosexual couple in the street. I ask the husband if he thinks his wife might just need some pussy.

Watch the video
