“Female bodies are still taboo, flawed, disgusting, shameful,” Wallace said. “I wanted to attack the fetishization of reproductive sex.” The problem of pleasure stems from these twin problems of offensive femininity (ranging from bare arms to nipples to the clit itself) and of sex as a penis-centric act, where women’s bodies are nothing but receptacles for men or for children. The former results in a concerted ignorance, the latter in active misinformation.
