Two Girls Contemplate Art, Aex, and Living

We chose these images because each represents a component of our sexuality. Every person has a complex history that affects who they are as sexual beings. We embrace the aspects of ourselves that have been abused, that have had unprotected sex, that have had tenderness, that have thrown caution to the wind, that love the curve of a girl's hip, that have survived pain. We offer gratitude to all the artists and activists who have fought in the struggle for freedom, health, sex and joy. It is the combination of these images that make up who we are as women.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Becky Trotter: This image brought up feelings in us of striving, longing, and isolation.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Joe DeHoyos: Shared girlhood memories. Keeping secrets. Shame.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Jorge Veras: Luckily, this is another aspect of sexuality ... sometimes it is just fun.

Our thoughts on the artwork of John Lesnick: We thought it was important that in this self-portrait, his body is open but his face is turned away.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Bob Corti: Clarity-Assumptions-Courage-Survivor.

Our thoughts on the artwork of W. Benjamin Incerti: There is a sweetness intertwining: Love, Pride, Queer. What Gay Pride means to us.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Stephen Andrews: The anesthetizing of even a kiss.

Our thoughts on the artwork of Edward Lightner: This image is a reference point to the multiple layers that make up sexuality and history.
