Girls who wear short skirts want to pick up guys and guys only want that one thing. Girls wearing makeup have issues. Boys have muscles and girls have problems, though crying is not one of them.

Those images are imposed on us by the media – particularly in pornography. In classic pornography the gender roles are set. And they do exist: girls who want soft sex, boys who brag about the girls they pick up. But maybe those boys longing for sensitivity and tenderness are just staying quiet. Maybe you don’t hear about those girls putting on makeup just for themselves because it makes them feel good. In the back and forth between our own sexuality and youporn, reality vs instagram makes us forget how to celebrate life – unique bodies, unique desires, unique preferences.

»I-object« exposes traditional role models and show that pornography is not a realistic image of sexuality in its diversity of desires and feelings. In the end you only have to please yourself!
