Magazines have long been vehicles of the sexual revolution. From the feminists of the 1970s who resorted to titles like Spare Rib to regain their sexuality by first publishing stories of female masturbation and talking about the enigmatic female orgasm, to the fetishists who immortalized the reality of this world in epic publications like London Skin Two.

The fanzine, understood as a form of art and expression, addresses the minds of today’s sexual futurists, those who try to capture a new type of sexual evolution characterized by the intersection between sex and technology, using the magazine as a channel to solve questions such as: will technology fuck us, or will we fuck technology?

For Iris Luz, it’s this question that drives her art and drives her new publication PC Erotic. The number one that has been published today, and features features that show to a great extent the scope of what sex is and how it will develop in the face of our technological future.

“We’re at a very odd point in society where we’re facing a whole new realm of ideas and concepts thanks to technology, but we have no idea how to approach them or lead a coherent discussion about them without instilling fear”- Iris Luz | Dazed

The first cover of PC Erotic is starring by our beloved Maria Forqué, who is presented to us as a genderless alien, through a photograph by Viktor Naumovski (@vvnaumovski). Nobody better than Forqué for this first issue, as she is one of the greatest representatives of this vision of the sex of the future. In addition, her latest visual and musical projects connect directly with the philosophy of PC Erotic.

“I’m fascinated by Maria’s online presence and her exploration of the ego,” reflects Luz. “Through her work she shows the magnitude and importance of social media in perceived power and representation, and shows an alternative view of beauty that refutes and rebels against any expectations people have put on her. Her nudity as an artist speaks to me as I feel that the final frontier for people and social media is their body, and navigating the intense politics surrounding it. To me, Maria’s identity and nudity symbolise a total liberation from limiting human morality and embrace unconditional self-love, which is a rebellion in itself.”  – Iris Luz | Dazed
