Vivid Entertainment Movies To Be Featured In 'consent"
VIVID ENTERTAINMENT MOVIES TO BE FEATURED IN 'CONSENT,' NEW TRIBECA EXHIBIT EXPLORING HOW WE REALLY FEEL ABOUT PORN
NEW YORK CITY – (March 13, 2012) – Consent, a new exhibit that "aims to close the gap between what we think about porn and what we say" opens March 21st at apexart in TriBeCa in New York City. Curated by adult writer and critic Lynsey G, the exhibit features clips from Vivid's "Rough Sex 1-3" from Vivid Entertainmentand other adult movies. Consent opens with a reception at the gallery from 6-8 pm and will run through May 12th.
Adult stars in the Vivid clips include Sasha Grey, April Flores, Sinnamon Love, Adrianna Nicole, Madison Young, Brittney Andrews, Danny Wylde, Evan Stone Tyler Knight and Mr. Marcus.
In establishing the premise of the exhibit, Consent asks its viewers a basic question: "Have you ever opened up to anyone about your private relationship with pornography? Despite the common knowledge that the use of porn, particularly online, is nearly ubiquitous—according to 2010 statistics compiled by OnlineMBA.com, 25% of search engine requests are for porn and over 28,000 people are looking at online porn at any given second—few of us think or talk about it honestly."
Consent also includes excerpts from three Vivid movies: Sex Drive, starring the black porn star Mr. Marcus; Night Nurses, a classic feature that explores what really goes on during the high shift at a busy hospital and "Chemistry 4." The clips are played silently over interviews Lynsey G has with porn actors and producers as well as consumers of pornography.
The exhibit explores such topics as porn's relationship to body image, sexual behavior, addiction, performer and consumer consent, piracy, sex as performance, and personal and private identity.
Consent asks viewers to acknowledge that "by entering this exhibit, I consent to viewing and considering its content, thereby releasing the creators from all liability which may arise should I find myself unexpectedly offended, aroused, or embarrassed."
New Yorker Lynsey G says she "splits her smutty scribblings between DVD reviews, set copy, sex toy reviews, performer interviews, 'sexpert' advice, analysis and criticism." She is also editor-in-chief of WHACK! Magazine.
