Sexual liberation is a strong and recurrent theme these days. It is also a powerful, important issue to talk about in art, and many interesting artists these days are doing it in the boldest of ways (Perfume Genius, Arca and most recently serpentwithfeet are but a few names to mention here).

However, strip away all the studio magic and what do you have ... read more
