I want to create the kind of art that makes people feel ZERO shame about the sex they're having and how they're having it and who they're having it with (unless they're hurting people, in which case, f*ck that). Get out there and Make Love Possible!

May we deepen into the call to co-create a world that can hold all of us, where eventually the concepts of sexual assault and shame will not even compute, where generations from now we won't even need words for such things. Even if we can't fully comprehend it yet, may we know in our blood and in our bones that this is possible.
