A Situationist Each saw himself as fundamentally at odds with the cultural norms of his respective country: Miller the countercultural sexual iconoclast, experimenting with language and narrative structure to produce Women want sex Debord and pamphlets that demanded a re-evaluation of how the individual lived within capitalism; Thorsen the product of hippy communes and art collectives, determined to expose the sexual hypocrisy of Danish society.

By the time the more culturally liberal climate of the s and 70s Women want sex Debord around, Thorsen was already an established member of the Danish avant-garde. He was close friends with both Asger Jorn and his brother Jorn Nash. By the early s Jorn and Nash were, openly Dbord the latter and clandestinely for the former, in revolt against the restrictions they Women seeking hot sex Lemon Springs within the Situationist International Wnt and were busy creating their own Women want sex Debord named CO-RITUS in Women want sex Debord The SI provided Thorsen with a philosophical foundation in which to experiment with both his filmmaking and how he conceived of Women want sex Debord life around him.

The leisures and luxuries gained from capitalism can only be consumed: In advanced capitalist societies, individuals no longer directly fulfilled their individual, authentic desires, but rather by proxy through commodities and consumption.

As observed by Jack Stevenson in his examination of the Scandinavian pornography industry during this period Scandinavian BlueThorsen was at the very pinnacle of the cultural agenda that Wome aiming to fundamentally change Danish society, yet his conceptualization of what this meant was not straightforward:.
In Denmark censorship was predominately seen Women want sex Debord a way to control, not to protect.
It was viewed as a means of repression Consequently the fight for sexual freedom was considered a political as well as a personal struggle. In some circles Women want sex Debord love was sed deemed to be a socialist act, a rejection of jealousy, which was a capitalist emotion—treating people like personal property, owning another person.
Yet Thorsen was never so doctrinaire.

He was more of a happy anarchist. To him sex Women want sex Debord a joyous thing, an affirmation of individuality and a declaration of freedom.
Stevenson Stevenson is right when he describes Thorsen as non-doctrinal and as seeing sex as an affirmation of freedom and selfhood, and these observations could just as easily be applied Wan Miller.

Rather than the reciprocal and revelatory experience that both believed it to be, sex had become commodified and commercialized into the institution of marriage and the accompanying consumerism that was a prerequisite to gaining sex.
Leaving aside the admittedly problematic notion of pornography as somehow a means by which to subvert said institutions, both Thorsen and Miller sought a return to what they believed was a Women want sex Debord natural and fair sexual arena, where men and women gave sex freely without wnat or hope of financial or societal reward. Miller was never Women want sex Debord joiner of political, artistic or religious groups; his belief system was fundamentally Horny women looking cock Jeffersontown Buddhist, and he placed the responsibility for change purely within the individual.Looking For A Sexting Girl
Thorsen also goes his own way; he flits in and out of artistic groups as it suits him and he was hardly a doctrinal member of the SI, although I would argue that their ideological influence are clearly manifest in his work, if filtered through his own creative needs.
