"We are always trying to sort out the elements which are most important: Sex, Money, Race and Religion. And we realize there is nothing apart from that … Sex as subject in art is in some ways forbidden. The corner porn shop has in some ways more freedom because the artist has to justify it morally. We believe that the power of living is sex. There is nothing else."
