House of Incest day 3 – PUSH OUT! Female Ejaculation Meets Hardcore Pornography

Day 3 for House of Incest was the most hardcore night with Vanessa Ho, the brain behind The Obscene (curator and organizer of House of Incest) presenting her thesis titled PUSH OUT! Female Ejaculation Meets Hardcore Pornography.

Before we start, would really like to apologize that we came late so we missed almost more than half of the entire presentation.

To simply cut short, Ho, who recently completed her Masters in Gender Studies in UK, researched into the parallel between female ejaculation (or known in the porn industry as squirting) with gender identity, particularly in terms of status and comparison to the masculine. A fast read into female ejaculation here.

The discussion went really interesting as audiences shared their views and the idea of power structure in terms of female ejaculation is more apparent. One even compares the porn industry to Marxism ideology and so on and so forth.

To the small audience as well, Vanessa presented clips of her research materials, which were obviously squirt porn.

Putting that aside, i find it peculiar that this theme, let’s generalize it as sex has too much to be looked into while to research into this particular theme, especially with the involvement of pornography, nudity and sexually explicit materials here, in Singapore, is completely unacceptable. This also extends to neighboring countries and many others in the world. But when it comes to pornography and academic, will the audience (general community) will view it the different way?

In our (Vannesa and I) conversation, she also mentioned that Sweden (if I can remember correctly)’s arts council recently awarded a grant for a academia to create her own feminist porn. Of course it received various responses from the Swedish community as well, but hey, the legitimate body actually sponsored the production! More about this here.

Leaving the space makes me wonder about the situation of such discourse. Placed between the grey area of what is law-abiding and what is illegal, the thrill was definitely sexy.

And when it comes to talk about women, I can’t help to be reminded of Andrée Weschler’s works. No no, she does not draw female ejaculation scenes but her drawings deal with the identity of women, in whichever ways they deliver to you.

Here’s one!
