Global Orgasm is a performance where I challenge the world to give me an orgasm through social media .
The project uses a combination of sex toys, mobile technology, and social networking, with an audience of potentially millions, to evoke sexual climax. Imagine, streamed on live-video, harnessed in variety of remotely controlled sex toys connected to a network of cell-phones applications, facebook application, tweeter stream, chat room and online tv, I challenges the world to witness and give me an orgasm.
Here the performer’s body is the catalyst of a global desire while the social network functions democratic platform, vehicle of a sublime global experience. To succeed, all the network’s participants will need to coordinate their input. Based on the number of participants, how well participants work together, and with what accuracy they can control the toys the performer might or might not get an orgasm.
Performing a long-distance global sexual act abstracts the body and technology equally, uncoupling action with the consequence of that action.
The question then is : what if the performer is not enjoying the experience and asks the word to stop. Will the world stop? Will the distance between the user and the performer, between the action and the consequence of an action removes the user from his/her social and moral responsibility. Will it be a global orgasm or a global rape?
In a time were the study of woman orgasm, sexual function and biology is still an uncharted territory mostly ignored by modern science, where woman sex toys are design and build manly by mans, where Internet retes new platform for sexual abuse, online rape and internet bulling, modern laws and coon morality struggle comply.
Global organs project function as an provocative activating agent and social research rising questions about woman sexuality, culture and their place in society.
