Kama

[EN]

This project arises from a personal motivation that investigates about the concept of sexuality in society, about the sexual education we receive and about the stereotypes that we find when buying a product for intimacy, such as sex toys.

[EN]

The project brings together a study presented in a book format that demonstrates the negative impact that pornography has had on sexual education and the link to technology that it implies. This technological dependence has led - to a certain extent - human beings to develop numerous "sex toys" in bright colors and childish shapes that must vibrate or move to replicate natural movement, making us less and less valid and more and more comfortable. It is due to the lack of design, sensitivity and lack of education that the project gives birth to the collection of erotic pieces "Kama". 

 

The Kama pieces are jewels that are made with solid glass and silicone, materials that are intended to adapt to all types of bodies and work without electricity. The jewelry is intended to activate the energy that resides in each of us, making our own body the motor.  Finished in neutral tones such as white, black and transparent, they bring simplicity and sensitivity. The designs of soft and subtle shapes accompany the person without attracting attention, so they could be placed freely in the bedroom without the need to be hidden.

 

In conclusion, Kama reconnects people in an analogical way to the inextinguishable human instinct to love.

[ES]

Este proyecto nace a partir de una motivación personal que investiga sobre el concepto de la sexualidad en la sociedad, sobre la educación sexual que recibimos y sobre los estereotipos que nos encontramos a la hora de comprar un producto para la intimidad; como son los juguetes sexuales.

[EN]

El proyecto reúne un estudio en formato libro que demuestra el impacto negativo que ha tenido la pornografía para la educación sexual y la vinculación a la tecnología que esta supone. Dicha dependencia tecnológica ha llevado al ser humano a desarrollar numerosos “juguetes sexuales” en colores llamativos y formas infantiles que deben de vibrar o moverse para replicar el movimiento natural, haciéndonos de cada vez menos válidos y más acomodados. Es por esta razón de falta de diseño y sensibilidad, y por la falta de educación por la que el proyecto da lugar a la colección de piezas eróticas “Kama”. 

 

Las piezas Kama so joyas que están hechas con vidrio macizo y silicona, materiales que pretenden adaptarse a todo tipo de cuerpos y funcionar sin electricidad. Las joyas pretenden activar la energía propia que reside en cada uno de nosotros y que el propio cuerpo sea el motor.  Acabadas en tonos neutros como el blanco, negro y transparente aportan sencillez y sensibilidad. Sus diseños de formas suaves y sutiles acompañan a la persona sin llamar la atención, por lo que se podrían colocar libremente en el dormitorio sin necesidad de esconderse.

 

En conclusión, Kama reconecta a las personas de manera analógica hacia el inextinguible instinto humano de amar.
