There is an ingrained sense of shame in genitals that is directly linked to censorship. It urges sex shames our bodies all at once. It’s no wonder we have a tough time talking about it. The Neudies are inherently provoking and inevitably spark a thought, a reaction, an opinion. Their ultimate value is in their ability to encourage a conversation that promotes acceptance. The goal was to design genital characters that are both approachable and recognizable. By adopting the form of toy parts rather than human genitals, we rely on the familiar and the unexpected.
