New Media – PC Erotic
PC Erotic is the raunchy-cool X-rated tech mag questioning the future of sex. We’re obsessed.
S&M, dominatrixes, erotica, drones and digital culture are some of the topics PC Erotic takes up in its eye-popping pages. Edited by artist, model and pomo pioneer Iris Luz and published in cahoots with DITTO Press (London), PC Erotic is terrifically garish, totally trash-tastic, yet deeply analytical in a clever and subtle way. The mag raises pressing questions around human sexuality and technology and offers nuanced takes on the nature of ‘carnal desires’, post-modern aesthetics, beauty and even global politics.
“The idea of mixing technology and sexuality for PC Erotic”, explains Iris, ”came about because at the time of the first creating the concept there were a lot of controversies surrounding the internet and sexuality. We’re at a very odd point in society where we’re facing a whole new realm of ideas and concepts thanks to technology, but we have no idea how to approach them or lead a coherent discussion about them without instilling fear (Black Mirror and your paranoid aunt on Facebook aren’t helping). Media frenzies like the back page censorship debate or the face app scandal got me thinking about how this is a time for us to reflect morally on where we stand because whether you like it or not, technology now more than ever is a physical extension of ourselves. Additionally, I’ve always been obsessed with the idea of the ‘ideal woman’ and beauty as power (whatever concept of beauty that is).”
At VIVISXN, we’re glued to PC Erotic for its visual gusto and new age, mixed media madness. It bucks censorship and the ‘new PC-ness’ in favor of bangin’, heart-shaped butts, sexy hourglass [real girl] silhouettes (for the heteronormative folk out there), pretty shaved pudentas, vintage-y vector graphics à la Y2K internet aesthetics and provocative headlines that will make your head spin (like, “When drones kill…the vibe” and “Housewife wants fiber-ionic cunt-nection“). It is sensual, sensory, surreal and suffused with off-beat op-eds and intriguing taboo topics (don’t worry, it crackles with queer culture, too). We love the typeface, triple-titties/gnarled nipples, tribal tramp stamps and anything related to President Trump x Stormy D.! The random heat maps and density functions make for rollicking optics as well. Good work, guys!
