I'm a sociologist, sexuality speaker, sex educator, and intimacy counselor in the sex field. We are raised with a lot of baggage and misconceptions around sex and gender. I help individuals, couples, and groups in MANY topics around sex, intimacy, relationships, and mindfulness (in person and through Skype). In order to honor the complexity of my clients, students, and sexuality, I integrate a holistic approach - physical, mental, emotional, social, & spiritual.

Dear Society,

If you think a woman in a tan vinyl bra and underwear, grabbing her crotch and grinding up on a dance partner is raunchy, trashy, and offensive but you don’t think her dance partner is raunchy, trashy, or offensive as he sings a song about “blurred” lines of consent and…

CLITERACY, 100 Natural Laws © Sophia Wallace 2012. Currently on view at Dumbo Art Center, details below. 

CLITERACY, 100 Natural Laws is mixed media project that explores a paradox;  the global obsession with sexualizing female bodies in a world that is illiterate when it comes to female sexuality. CLITERACY is a new way of talking about citizenship, sexuality, human rights, and bodies. The project reveals the – phallic as neutral – bias in science, law, philosophy, politics, mainstream and even feminist discussion, and the art world - which is so saturated with the female body as subject. Using text as form, CLITERACY explores the construction of female sexual bodies as passive vehicles of reception defined by lack. It confronts a false body of knowledge by scientists who have resisted the idea of a unique, autonomous female body and rather studied what confirmed their assumption that women’s anatomy was the inverse of male anatomy, and that reproduction was worthy of study, while female sexuality was most certainly not. In the last ten years there have been tremendous scientific breakthroughs in the understanding of the clitoris. The clitoris is exponentially larger and more complex than commonly thought. What we think of as the clitoris, is only the tip of the iceberg.  While this discovery is shocking in it’s late arrival, the problem of global ILLCITERACY is a salient allegory into the bigger problem of a female body, both cis and trans female, constructed by men, with false information, the goal of control and a culture that defines femaleness as inferior and female sexual organs as taboo. CLITERACY builds upon my photographic practice and ongoing exploration of how power shapes knowledge, often through use of the visual, for the purpose of social control. 

CLITERACY
is monumental in scope and scale with 100 Natural Laws that span 10 by 13 feet and a 6 foot neon piece suspended from the ceiling.  CLITERACY, 100 Natural Laws was completed during my Van Lier Fellowship in the Art Law Residency

come on, stop cloaking body-friendly empowering rhetoric in only white cis mostly normative representations of bodies. this picture is not revolutionary. it is not new nor is it exciting or particularly meaningful. white (cis-presenting—correct me if i’m wrong) individuals loving their bodies doesn’t actually target the vast majority of the most harmful body-shaming rhetoric. this is NOT empowering or intersectional or anything.
