I’ll have what she’s having…

I have no excuses and I was being purely salacious in my initial interest in this. But by the third video I was just hooked on the sublime beauty and strangeness of it all.

Photographer, Clayton Cubitt, has a new film project, Hysterical Literature, where he invited women to read from their favourite books while being brought to orgasm. It’s not pornographic – all the ‘action’ takes place off-camera and beneath a desk – but it is quite arousing. I’ve told myself several times that it was just the literature that was fascinating me, but who am I trying to kid?

If I could just spin this into some sort of incentive to get my two boys to read more (without being labelled a ‘Dirty Old Man’), I would feel as if I had achieved something.
