GODASSES - Part II: 5ildo

GODASSES – Part II : 5ildo

L’entrée du monde

Whereas the first video of Emre Busse’s GODASSES reverences the luscious materiality of the butt, the second part of his trilogy openly centers its open center. Together with adult entertainer 5ildo, Busse examines the asshole as gateway into a world of polymorphous pleasures, which are ultimately detached from the valorizations of sex and particularly the male sex.

It almost goes without saying that any entry into this cavity poses a problem for heteronormative ideals of masculinity. Against presupposed constructions of gendered exchange, positions, and sexual possibilities, the penetrated man opens his body to erotic significations that seemingly annihilate his privileged, gendered subject position. But seemingly extreme anal practices such as f*sting, which is prominently featured in this video, invents pleasures beyond the confines of gender. Fisting anarchizes a body’s traditional erotic organization as it deprioritizes the so-called genitals and the orgasmic release.

By worshipping the anus, GODASSES Pt. 2 immerses us in an orifice that is universal to all of humanity (and, with some exceptions like sea sponges or jelly fishes, to most non-human animals as well). As an erogenous center, the assh*le is situated beyond the anatomical limits imposed by sexual difference since it bears no immediate relation to procreational organs: “The anus’s task,” as Paul B. Preciado concludes in his Countersexual Manifesto, “is not directed toward reproduction, nor is it founded on the establishment of a romantic nexus. It generates profits that cannot be accounted for in a heterocentric economy. Through the anus, the traditional sex/gender representation system shits itself.”
