[English title, Dream bed]

INSTANT body, INSTANT coitus, INSTANT dreams
The fast-paced images are freeze-dried, the fast-paced dreams static, the people coded, the codes interchangeable.
Porn is the dream of de-sensualized sexuality, the imagination of the eternally available, the dream of the mechanics of the act, a man's dream of being a pleasurable voyeur of a constantly repeatable action – the bodies become symbols that function mechanically – interchangeable as the ambience: the palm tree, the rose wallpaper, the art on the wall.
