ポストした写真について、本人の説明─ *1 *2

"I once listened to a late night BBC Radio 4 programme called Sex in the Head where people described their sexual fantasies and on it a woman described how she enjoyed her partner reading his newspaper by the light of a candle placed in her vagina.
The image stayed in my head and 2 or 3 years later I was able to find a couple who agreed to model for the picture.
The book the philosopher is reading is entitled The Destiny of the Mind East and West. "

一度夜遅くのBBCラジオ4番組『Sex in the Head』という性的なファンタジーの告白モノを聴いていたのだけど、その中に、一人の女性の話で、彼女が自分の膣に蝋燭を挿して彼氏がその明かりで新聞を読むのをいかに楽しんだかというのがあったんだ。
