Looking for Mr. Goodsex. | Alexandra Rubinstein. | NSFW

[su_dropcap style=”flat” size=”4″]T[/su_dropcap]aking un-cropped stills from vintage movies filmed during the Golden Age of pornography, painter Alexandra Rubinstein does a fine job of romanticizing smut in her series, Looking for Mr. Goodsex. Rubinstein’s mission goes far beyond romanticization, she actually uses the work to spark a dialog. This dialog begins by questioning whether a woman’s pleasure has become less important in the face of porn’s growing appeal and accessibility. Rubinstein cleverly points out:

Inspired by the title of the 1985 movie, they highlight the shots taken of women’s faces – which are less emphasized in contemporary videos. This disparity questions progression in sexuality and value placed on female pleasure as pornography became more accessible and mainstream.
