About



The underlying theme of the site is exploring ones comfort in regards to unorthodox sexual practices as well as attempting to understand ones own sexuality. To this end we are constructing a site in which the user is encouraged to participate in the orgy he is witnessing. The user is not just an omnipotent voyeur but actively participates by helping the lovers, pleasuring the site, etc. The is more than a freak show, it is a celebration of love and the exploration of social norms. By participating the user is not just giggling but becoming, if not more accepting or understanding, at some level comfortable.

The main challenge for this project was to walk the line between cheeky and offensive. While the target audience was decided to be Museum of Sex attendees, it was still difficult to find a proper balance in terms of representation of nudity and penetration. Thus we came up with a very iconographic and humorous system.
