Urban objects have an intense sexual life; and they lack modesty. Flirting and mating among diverse urban objects, be they stylized streetlights or solid buildings, is recurrent in the city. There is indeed much less fidelity in well-equipped modern cities than in traditional rural environments. Sexual intercourse generally takes place between objects of different species and gender, or between cross-gender partners of the same species, but same-gender sex is on the rise. Group sex cases among inanimate urban creatures have also proliferated during the last few decades, as metropolitan areas become more complex. However, lustful activity of this kind often goes unnoticed, particularly to busy human beings.
“Sex & the City” is documenting sensual rapprochement and intimacy but also sudden breakup and oblivion among buildings, street furniture and machinery. The project constitutes in this sense a celebration of consensual sexual pleasure for all.
