A man is stripped by a group of women who lewdly pull at his clothes and grope his body.
I thought this image was intriguing for a number of reasons. It’s plainly sexy; the guy is a hunk and his expression of surprise, concern, or fear is—in a sexualized context—simply beautiful.
In a world where deeply-engrained sexism decrees that women are not allowed to look at men, the aggressive sexual advances of this group of women on this one man flips traditional sexual representations on its head. Also noteworthy is that, unlike many pictures that try to do this, in this one the women are almost all entirely clothed. However, lazily flipping genders around doesn’t solve the problems of sexism.
As interesting as this photograph is in that sense, it stops short of being a solely positive portrayal because, at least in the case of the woman masturbating herself between the man’s legs, some of the women seem to be wearing prison uniforms. Are they convicts? Are only women who society rejects capable of being the desirous partner for sexual relations? If so, maybe it’s time we reengineered our society.
