A combination of art and sex, Hysterical Literature is a series of videos that show reading women valiantly trying to maintain composure while being brought to orgasm. As a great admirer of videos showing authentic release, I have found this series to be very entertaining.
Filmed in black and white, the women read from a book of their own choosing, while seated at a table. Under the table, an unseen person uses a vibrator on them. The women stop reading when they become too distracted or too tired.
The artist behind this project is NYC-based photographer and filmmaker Clayton Cubitt. According to the HL website, the project “explores feminism, mind/body dualism, distraction portraiture, and the contrast between culture and sexuality. (It’s also just really fun to watch.)”.
