“A real pleasure is a pleasure that one enjoys by one’s self, without a companion, and without a single argument.”–Sholom Aleichem
In this self-pleasure series, Jamie Nelson juxtaposes her quirky sense of humor with overt sensuality to convey a new wave female gaze. Nelson’s use of saturated colors and decadent femininity synthesizes with her debaucherous rock and roll edge.
From an array of sex toys to a sea of blow-up dolls–Nelson conducts a symphony of unbridled fun and emboldened sexuality. With her models adorned in patent leather, phallic heels, and shiny latex, Nelson celebrates the stag woman’s self-assurance through sexual freedom.
As a happily single female entrepreneur, Nelson suggests a partner is unnecessary in order to enjoy one’s most pleasurable self. Moreover, this series acts as a metaphor for life, leading the viewer to question their own relationship with self-pleasure.
