Lascivious, libidinous and salacious artists cum together for an evening of sexy, experimental cinema! ‘You can watch’ as different, brave artists expose radical suggestions regarding the nature of difference and desire and the conjoining of sexuality/gender/eroticism. Cream yourself over forthright, frank depictions of the bodies’ invisible truths!

These artists ask: when you’re feeling hot, do you reach for your lover, your vibrator or your camera? Who we are or aren’t fucking isn’t as interesting how we’re doing it: with cameras, microphones and media helping us along to our bliss. Young girls experiment by video-recording newly acquired gestures and curves, straight men stare into the sun analyzing the rippling terrain of the vulva, solo-adventurers fuck themselves to dazzling heights with the camera on, while others deconstruct popular media’s groping motions with glee. The western world is a dizzy spin, saturated with sexy advertisements, Internet porn and sticky loads of technology infringing on our schedules, workplaces and private life, and when it comes to sex, you’re either with them or against them…or at the very least humping their leg.

About Lickety Split smut zine: Lickety Split is a pansexual smut zine dedicated to encouraging sex-positive expression and thought. The zine promotes collaborative art making and encourages diverse contributions to climb into bed with one another, because one sexual expression just does not satisfy. Lickety Split wants to help make the masses cum with smutty photography and art, essays and stories in order to fulfill the whole human being and address the complexity of sex.
