DIYKE is a portmanteau / hybrid of DIY & DYKE which puts emphasis on two aspects important for us as in our motto: Do it yourself or ask your girlfriend to do it (“it” being both art & erotics).
DIYKE is an art project that focuses on our pursuit of pleasure as dykes & other members of the FLINTA* community
We are FLINTA*: (all identifying as) female, lesbian, intersex, nonbinary, trans and agender people. The FLINTA* movement objective is to find an expression for a group of people who are discriminated against and oppressed by the patriarchal structures of our society. The F in FLINTA* also stands for Feminist.
Mission Statement: Our art project is dedicated to exploring and celebrating pleasure through the creation of (post) porn movies, saucy prints, and more practical means & tools such as harnesses & other erotic gear.
The pleasure we find in acts of inter-personal, inter-species inter-actions. Erotic & non-erotic. Romantic & non-romantic. Including ecosexual human-ecosystem intercourse. Hydrosexual human-watersystem intercourse – fucking water. Befriending water.
