Put a Pussy On It!

The public dick drawing has always been delightful to me. The little tossed-up graffiti genital, sharpie-penned or spray-painted quickly on an ad or sign, seems to express so much: anger, joy, disrespect, attraction, protest: it responds to what is given with a little tiny “fuck you!”.   It’s delightful, but as a friend asked me last year, while I was drawing a pile of dicks for public distribution: “Hey, where are all the pussies at?”

      Where indeed?  It was only once she pointed it out that I noticed the appalling lack of pussy in graffiti and public art. In a world that welcomes www.drawadickonit.com, shouldn’t we also advocate that people put a pussy on it?  

        My aim in creating the pussy prints was to take the spirit of the dick drawing and open it up, make it more expansive, more loving.  Like the dick drawing, the pussy print is funny and not-funny; it defaces, but it also, in my view, elevates, bringing sexuality and joy into the public, commercialized spaces that we always occupy. I’m not trying to counter the dick drawings: I love them as just much as the next guy. However, at their worst, they can threaten instead of protest, reference rape instead of sex.  My hope is that we can build up public pussy art as another kind of easy aesthetic outcry, one that is not so monolithic, so penetrative: the pussy is an image that contains a mountainous complexity and a valley-like depth, but is still simple and graphic enough to transmit the essential message: fuck it, fuck that, fuck yeah.
