In the Interest of Sex

This seems apropos to defamiliarize one and examine the
video from a Formalists eye because - besides the humor - it takes the
physical
anatomy and uses it as the stepping stone for the actual
drawing.
It is an unusual starting point to get to the cartoon drawing
and most certainly demands the viewer to look beyond their initial shock
or humor or whatever one's first thought and impression may be at the
primary drawing. It takes embarrassment or reddened cheeks out of the
equation and adds playfulness in its place.

My personal favorite is the artists interpretation of Sigmund Freud. Now
every time I look at art I'm going to see if I can find the physical
attribute hidden inside :)
