The written word and the naked body are equally powerful expressions of freedom. Furthermore, they are intellectually inseparable from one another. A state of physical and mental nudity leaves no room for dishonesty or cowardice. Nakedness is essential to truth, because only when naked can the truth be seen as it is–can it be truth at all, in other words. The pairing of intellect with sensuality is a marriage of reason and ethics, a synthesis of the most fundamental qualities in human life. This union, and the joy of it, is what I endeavor to express in my life and work.
