"If a girl is lucky enough to receive any sex education, she will be taught the biological basics. She’ll learn that men have penises and testicles and produce sperm and women have vaginas and uterii and produce ova. She’ll learn that when a man and a woman have sex, the man inserts his penis into the woman’s vagina until he ejaculates. She’ll learn that the semen in the ejaculate will render her vulnerable to pregnancy so she will have to protect herself by using a hormonal or a barrier contraceptive. Hormonal contraception is preferable because barrier methods such as condoms, while safer for women, apparently reduce sensation for men which is obviously a no-no. It’s much better that a woman take a pill every day for her entire reproductive lifespan, or get a painful injection every 12 weeks, or have a copper rod inserted into her uterus, or a silicone rod implanted into her arm. She probably won’t learn that 3 out of 4 women never orgasm from vaginal intercourse. She almost definitely won’t learn how women do achieve orgasm. She’ll learn her place as a receptacle."
Danish artist Peter Callesen creates complex sculptures and scenes with symbolic imagery by cutting and folding single sheets of plain white paper.
The solid, imaginative forms and humorous imagery emerging from each sheet of paper is all the more remarkable considering the intricate sculptural detail and symbolism he usually adds in the process. His art usually depicts tragedy in various shapes and forms – by using a simple featureless material, the drama of each scene and the fragile nature of the characters involved are even more intensified.
