Áine Ní ChaomhánachAine Kavanagh (or ní Chaomhánach for the non-anglicised version) is a science dork trying to reinvent herself as a cool creative gal who can maybe surf a bit. She is obsessed with how we see our bodies and how our bodies see us, and how this relationship decides how we dance, how we love, how we mourn, how we move through this big ol world
Amanda Hohenberg amanda is half human half shrimp woven together by a thread of tender undergrowth. she is based in NYC where she uses poetry and audio research to make kin with weeds across languages and temporal zones.
Cheryl Rudd I experience art as a way to understand myself, to comprehend the internal and external worlds. Making sense of modern day mayhem. Frequently I am drawn to working with the female form, enhancing it, uncovering it and merging it with other visual realities. Sex in my opinion is not only the act of having sex, its the essence, its all around us if you look close enough. It's in curves, in colours and words, it can be found quietly hovering everywhere if you look for it.
Donald Butler When I crave sex and/or intimacy - two separate but entangled things - there is always the mediator of a screen, almost always my phone. If I were to look at the micro details of my sex life, the story is in the greasy finger prints smeared all over a screen; negotiated hook-ups, never-ever-happening drunk messages, Rihanna played for the 8th time in one night. All these things are evidenced through the sebum excreted from my horny fingers, and I realise I’m more intimate with my phone than I am with the men I fuck. That strange relationship I have with my devices is where most of the work and thoughts I get stuck on are based, on the screen.Donald is a visual artist, writer and cultural producer based in Aberdeen
Eleanor AffleckEleanor is a part-time Queer History MA student at Goldsmiths UoL working in in LGBTQ+ arts access and education. Rosalind performing Ganymede in As You Like It is a cross-dressing, gender-fucking, transcestral, bisexual, homosexual, gay, lesbian, queer icon. Seeing all of these possibilities across history gives me a point of reference, a feeling that we have always been trying to work this shit out, and feeling it out as best as we can, and that gives me a lot of hope for the present.
Gouda TreciokaiteI am a final year nanoscience student in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. Through my photographs, I wanted to showcase the beauty, fragility and softness of the male body. Boys are subject to so many gender stereotypes that still need to be broken down to this day.
Julianne Mueller I found myself on the hedonistic treadmill of the corporate industry before my calling into the nonprofit sector and my reawakening as an artist. I'm a community organiser, facilitator of transformational spaces and I'm passionate about authentic expression of self through art, intellect, emotion and sex.
Lee DoreMx. (Lee) Dore is a human being and artist that engenders their self differently everyday - they don't currently have a name, but maybe when you read this they will. For them, sex is a conception of breath and being that is in every flower, root, and stem - literal and figurative. In human social situations, sex is a playful exploration of empathy and the empowering limitations of consensual reality that liberate our creativity in becoming and coming and coming into here and now.
Lily Guy VogelMy interest in all things sexual (in my poetry) came about completely organically, I write a lot in isolation, often when I am having a strong emotional reaction to something and it just keeps coming up again and again in my work. Without realising it I suddenly had a collection of pieces exploring female sexuality and that is now something that I am working towards - I am currently trying to create a small anthology which deals with all aspects of female sexuality in modern society - not an easy feat at all and quite a complicated, messy, varied subject - which is what I am trying to portray in my work.

Sophie le RouxSophie’s photographic desires are usually fuelled by neglected construction sites oozing pink goo and stripped-down walls, but here she moves into a new realm with images echoing German 1970s food fetish pornography, with traces of Jessica Simpson.

Tom RingsbyI got a call to shoot the beautiful people of the kissmob at the Berlin march this summer, as both an avid street photographer and kisser it was a sweet project to get involved with. Big love to all the radical role models marching and making out for a better future. Photographer based in London.
Will Brown I am an Australian-born writer and filmmaker based in Berlin, here to talk shit and expand your mind. My stories tend to be satirical comedies from the perspective of warped little weirdos, and my featured semi-autobiographical short story A Tribute To Self Worth is no different. If there’s anything I want you to gain from my little tale, it’s the fundamental truth that the key to spiritual satisfaction is found in the pursuit of individual enlightenment and not in the quest for silly things like community, inter-personal connection or environmentalism.
