Artist Who Offered Passersby to Stroke Her Genitals Arrested in London
London police arrested Milo Moiré, a Swiss artist who was walking around the city and offering strangers to touch her genitals, Dazed & Confused writes.
The performance is a part of her Mirror Box project aimed to attract attention to the problem of sexual violence against women. Moiré says she wanted to assert the idea of ‘consensual nature of sexual acts.’
“I am standing here today for women’s rights and sexual self-determination,” — the artist said during her performance, — “Women have a sexuality, just like men have one. However, women decide for themselves when and how they want to be touched, and when they don’t.”
