Masturbation is the epitome of self-love
As recent year’s events unfolded, the absence of touch became the focal point and main catalyst in the development of this project. The depravation of this sensual experience has led me to turn towards myself to seek comfort and gratification, which meant that self-loathing was not an option anymore - the journey to self-love started with the realisation of the importance of caring for my body and soul. These visually captivating toys are encapsulating the shame I experience when talking about self-love, not just the spiritual but the physical one too. Masturbation is the purest form of self-love - but will I be condemned if I say this out loud?
