Constance Penley: “The Totally Tasteless range of videos harken back to porn’s earliest roots in the circus sideshow, the freakshow… like the circus sideshow the attraction for the viewer isn’t necessarily an erotic one, but it’s one that offers us the chance to be disgusted, it offers us the chance to be frightened, it offers us the chance to have worries about our own bodies. It’s a celebration of corporeality in all of its aspect. It’s not just the sexualized, eroticized body, it’s also the body that farts, and pisses, and shits.”
