ForService. Is the all new fetish zine that explores the sexual desires that are currently being craved and heightened whilst we are all experiencing isolation. The Zine focuses on gay men, exploring the community through the lens of Behl who curated all the content through the use of digital calls.
“ForService vol.1 is an ode to sex, fetish and pleasure through my own lense. The zine was curated and captured whilst in lockdown. Sex and self-pleasure is blurred with our need for communication and connection especially whilst self-isolating. I've explored this by using digital means like video calls and phone apps to capture this intimate energy. Making the best out of this bad situation to create the start of an erotic book, which will continue once this is all over”
Behl, who is also a part of the Quazar family working as head stylist on issue 05, proved that whilst the world might be on lockdown, nothing can stop the creativity of queer creatives, producing an entire body of work during a pandemic. The zine perfectly caters to the niche of eroticism, something that many of us are craving whilst being removed from other people in isolation. It also looks at self-pleasure, highlighting the importance of sexual release and exploring one’s own body.
ForService vol.2 has already promised to explore life after COVID-19, looking at how gay men’s relationships with eroticism and desire may have changed whilst being locked down.
