Episode Nine: Getting Creative with Genitalia
A Japanese artist re-imagines the vagina. An erotic fiction writer wrestles with words. A broadcaster discovers what the rest of his body can do after he loses penile motor function. They, and others, shed new light on our private parts.
"Because we're so obsessed with genitals, when you lose function in that, you just think, oh that's it, it's gone."
- Mik Scarlet
