Tediousphilia (Musée de l’Elysée, 2014)

This book is part of the Tediousphilia project

Thousands of young couples from every corner of the planet are setting up businesses, simply and quickly, from the comfort of their own bedrooms. Usually unemployed, affected by the hopeless crisis of our days, members of the “Facebook Generation” and unafraid of exposing their intimacy for few hundred bucks a week; these enterprising pairs offer sex performances online. Their virtual, on-demand peepshows can be found on several websites, where you can watch them waiting “ready to have sex for you” on live stream until the moment you decide to pay for action. Tediousphilia is a project which documents the boringness and tedium suffered by vernacular webcam sex-performer couples in the standby, before-sex moment in the not-that-virtual second-life.
