the ballad of sexual dependency

i don’t know it.
however I bet you that these ladies probably do. Maybe even know how to do a lot of things. There’s a reason I have enjoyed that album to the point of obsession.

“the ballad of sexual dependency” is actually probably the scariest slideshow i’ve ever seen. in it, nan goldin documents a “struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends and lovers”. it’s managed to survive and not be overshadowed and changed the way one could classify pornographic imagery. you are looking at these pictures from the safety of your home, but you’re still looking; vicariously drumming, vicariously bruised.
