Squirting from a queer-materialist perspective
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
While the fluidity of gender finds more and more acknowledgement, the idea that there are only two ‘biological sexes’ still holds persistently even in feminist discourses. An idea of ‘nature’ is thus oftentimes adduced as evidence for the existence of ‘men’ and ‘women’.
This talk rejects the alleged binary ‘nature’ and offers a queer view on bodies and their genitalia. Looking in depth at bodily matter, flesh, tissues, glands and fluids it becomes clear that bodies themselves are not straight: Not only genitals exist in all shapes and forms, but also prostate glands and their fluids have multiple and various characteristics that transcend the binary. We will investigate into the phenomenon of “squirting” by looking at anatomical illustrations of vulvae, vulval prostates, urethrae and periprostatic tissue.
Following these anatomical insights there will be time for sharing thoughts and personal experiences – since the experience of squirting is very varying for each of us!
