Universe of Sexy

‘Universe of Sexy’ takes the SEX out of SEXY. It unfolds a sexy universe, composed of personal narratives and innuendos to popular culture. What is sexy through the eye of a heterosexual female with reference to popular culture in western society. The work addresses and challenges the stereotypical audience expectation of sexiness.

Have we, in western society, exhausted how to be sexy? How can we be sexy with no sexual intention? Is society and popular culture afraid to present sexy without sexual intention because it’s proven that sex sells?
