how much can you miss someone?

september 2010

she burst

dropped off

pick the fruit

realize i’m naked

i’m naked too

so cover my body

dress it fine

hide my linen and lace

been sewing ever since

since time began

but more than the hills

more than the trees

more than the mountains, you

more than i can see

in front of me

more than the mountains, you

fruit flower myself inside-out

i’m happy and bleeding for you

fruit flower myself inside-out

i’m tired and i’m bleeding for you

this fruit was bruised

dropped off and blue

out of season

happy and bleeding

long overdue

too early and it’s late too

mind and body i would and i would not do

Here is my February picture, inspired by the Queer X show:

March 2010 constituted a fail for me, i.e. I stopped bleeding before inspiration materialised. But, it was not all bled in vain. On a visit to one of my favourite hang outs, Klub Fukk, some of it was captured on moving image. Here is a still, and a promise to let you know, in case you would want to, when there might be a chance to see the whole film. It’s almost as hot to watch, as it was to record.

i dreamt last night that i was doing a modelling session and the photographer asked me to do whatever i wanted to, surprise him. in the dream, i started to pull money out of my cunt.

i think it was my subconscious not very subtly summing up my feelings about certain kinds of work.

    I’m sorry, but I would recommend that you both went to therapy. That’s not healthy, I would understand, of course, if you use some food coloring. But their menstrual! Really sick, I highly recommend any treatment, that is no longer healthy!
    And remove the hairs, you are a woman!

      I love that this blog explores menstruation (and body hair!) in a theme that pushes social boundaries and holds on to the strength and beauty of a normal feminine occurrence which has been long hidden and bastardised in this ridiculous Victorian patriarchal fashion. Nearly every woman bleeds. Every woman naturally has hair…. Quite frankly, get over it.

      “remove the hairs, you are a woman!”

      remove your prejudice, you are a bigot.

    Actually, I think this is a wonderful project. I’ve only had a few relationships(quality over quantity) and the most fulfilling and long lasting, were those that included menstrual sex. By removing all the barriers and taboos, we’ve been free to be more open and candid and about our lives and feelings in general. The most unique thing though, is the fact that this has been initiated by my partners, not me!

    Excellent work girls – it’s so important to smash these menstrual taboos. To state a few reasons why:

    Within the last fifteen years, leading members of the medical community have referred to menstruation as an obsolete and debilitating condition, an illness, or an unhealthy and unnatural disease peculiar to women (e.g. Coutinho & Segal., 2000; Thomas & Ellertson, 2000). Recent work indicates even slight reminders of menstruation can lead to i) reduced perceptions of a woman’s personal competence, ii) reduced general liking for her, iii) physical distancing and iv) increased objectification of her (Roberts et al., 2002).

    There’s a lot at stake. Don’t let anyone hold you back – the art work you are doing now will change the future. Keep it going!

    This entire project is incredible. The images are absolutely gorgeous and inspiring, as well as fucking hot.

    Kudos to you ladies for braving our oppressive society with your art and inspirations. Those few who left insulting comments have sadly been too manicured by the patriarchal socialization that feminists have overcome and struggle to end. They are victims. It’s a bummer. You ladies are sexy and rad.

    What you do is sick and disgusting and has absolutely nothing to do with art. You call things whatever you want just to try and get people to accept it. You’ll be judged by Jesus Christ one day and I pity you when that happens.

    This site has been so enlightening about the whole menstrual thing and how it affects you beautiful creatures. Most of us only ever see it as a box of tampons or pads in the cabinet under the sink. You are all so beautiful and I celebrate your exclusivity and your burden. Love, Michael

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. This blog makes it easier to breathe in a society where we are taught that menstruation is yucky and the smell, taste and feel of our sexual organs is something to be hidden and perfumed away. Keep on, beautiful warriors!

    This blog is incredible, enlightening, empowering.
    I was directed here by a friend after publishing my own blog post about menstruation, I thought you might be interested http://babefiend.com/2013/06/28/blood/ xx
