A project of fetish pornography Tish-Tish, these videos develop the subconscious with the exploitation of the audiovisual side of (apparently) non-sexual acts that can even be part of our daily life. They are based on a large investigation of how fetishes and paraphilias are dealt by the fetishists themselves on the internet, resulting in porn that stands apart form the most commercial type, for their content and aesthetic; it’s re-inserted on Youtube for the fetishist to watch and enjoy since this is the place where they get their material besides specialized pages. It is an approach that deals with the plasticity that can be reached with the image captured by the video, and the immersive environment of its audio, making this actions break apart from the body, standing on their own; proving us that sex is more than just genitals. It also works with the apparent permissive content that Youtube allows proving that these superficially normal images can provoke or avoid the channel's censorship.
