Games Perverts Play is a new collaborative project from Quiet Riot Girl, who always uncompromisingly refuses to look at issues of sexuality, sex work, desire and porn through anything but the most serious feminist glasses but without ever accepting what she sees as feminist stereotypes about sex and the sex industry simply because she’s told to.
QRG is an inspirational figure, and Games Perevrts Play is a fascinating project, which she describes as
“[using] pornography and essays to explore the less examined sides of our libidos, and to dissect our sexualities. Gender, power, pain and violence are all present in the background when we play. This project brings them to the fore, and enables us to look afresh at what it is we are doing when we write about sex, when we play sex games, and when sex gets serious.”
Issue 1, just out, is themed around objectification, questioning and playing with the usual negative conntations of the word.
