Who: My name is Soraya Doolbaz and I'm an Iranian Canadian living in NY.
What: My project is called DICTURE and it's exactly what it sounds like. Dick Pictures. But these aren't just your regular dick pics. These are dick pics with a twist! It's an artistic take on an otherwise alluring modern dating tactic.
Why: I’ve gotten my fair share of dick pics over the years and most of my single friends have as well. We would show them to each other and compare. These dick pics varied in quality depending on the guy and the relationship (gay guys really do take the best dick pics). I thought it would be funny to treat dick pics like a high fashion photo shoot. So, I put clothes on penises and the rest is history!
My goal with all this was to make people laugh. I wanted to create comfort and confidence around sexuality for men and women. Men should be proud of their dicks regardless of its size or characteristics. Women and gay men should have no shame in enjoying them. The demand is there. Most women, 100% of gay men, LOVE cock. Safe to say most people love cock. So why is it so hidden?
In my humble opinion, men have been controlling the content. Most men don't want to see another guys’ dick. As a result, tits and ass have owned the spot light.
Gender and sexuality aren't in separate corners anymore. The reality is, penises were on the map way back in Roman times. The Statue of David and all Greek Gods had their cock and balls out there like it was for sale. Then religion (Catholicism) came into play and they covered David’s dick with plaster fig leaf. As religion is dissipating, the penis is re-emerging through dick pics whether for sexual liaising or just a "hey how you doing I'm thinking of you" text from your partner. I'm hoping to bring back that equality to humanity through dick art. Not only for the acceptance of our genitals as they are but also to shed light and humor on an otherwise taboo subject.
It's a cock revolution people!
