Tip No. 30

In June 2003, Cosmopolitan magazine, published “99 Sexual Ways To Touch Him.” Tip number 30 encouraged women to put their man’s penis through the hole of a glazed donut, nibble around it, “stopping to suck” every once in a while. This “tip” raised concerns and questions in the popular media.

The twelve square format, color photographs in the series Tip No. 30 imagine this scenario from a man’s perspective. Absurdity, humor, and revulsion (or titillation) inform the images and prompt questions about mass media’s effect on perceptions of capitalism, intimacy, love, and sex.
