This platform is imagined as form on online nightclub, with burlesque as the core experience, perhaps a site that is only open for several hours a day, across different time zones.
A “homepage” / initial landing page, to be deliberately opaque… perhaps a blank screen or full-screen image of a door, in a wall, where you must “knock” (click on the door) to come in. The knock triggers someone to open a screen, where you’re asked to consent to your face being scanned.
“Facial scanning seems like a lot to demand from a visitor to a website…” I hear you mutter to yourself.
And I agree.
It might be too much.
I also considered a special login consisting of an anatomical diagram of the vulva, which you’d have to label correctly to gain access. I felt if guys are exposed to so much sexual content online, some of it should at least be educational; humourously provocative in the sense of re-humanising a sexually-objectified woman.
In any case I want the site experience to be accessible and earned, for a few reasons.
- A degree of accountability, without demanding identity
- The expectation of a real human visiting the site and paying attention
- This is not free content for you to consume without giving something in return. You are invited to engage with us. You are a guest. You are not in control. We are not to be taken for granted.
