Liv STRÖMQUIST / Translation: AIKAWA Chihiro

[Sweden/Japan]

A work that focuses on the female body and probes sexual issues that tend to be taboo. Introduces history, mechanisms and the voices of women, while citing many academic studies on female sex organs, female orgasm and physiology. In Sweden, where this work was released, there was intense debate. Depicts an area that has not been explored much with approachable designs and humor.
