Practices of BDSM survive in some of the oldest textual records in the world, associated with rituals to the goddess Inanna. Inanna describes cross-dressing transformations and rituals “imbued with pain and ecstasy, bringing about initiation and journeys of altered states of consciousness.
This series was inspired by the Fetish and BDSM culture of the Queer and LGBTQIA+ community. This culture is often viewed as a subculture mainly because BDSM is often still regarded as “unusual” by some of the public. A scene that is rarely accepted by the heteronormative society or the lgbtqia+ scene itself. Many people hide their learning from society since they are afraid of incomprehension and of social exclusion.
I see these practices as an example of “aesthetic sexuality”, in which a founding physiological or psychological impulse is irrelevant. Rather, sadism and masochism may be practiced through choice and deliberation, driven by certain aesthetic goals tied to style, pleasure, and identity. These practices, in certain circumstances and contexts, can be compared with the creation of art.
