The Cremaster: The Satyr

Lust, and giving in to it, is not a deviant or freakish thing. Bastiaan Buijs designs straddle the line between art and functionality. He intends to free our human sexual urges from shame and taboo. The Satyr allows men to stand up for their lust; based loosely on a vaulting horse but topped with a generous, organic-looking torso, it puts the image of the sad lonely man with a blow-up doll firmly in the past. Bastiaan believes this object is fit both for indulging your lust and for showing the world that you are a physical, sexual being.
