Emerging Canadian art outfit Virginia Puff Paint, composed of Jeremy Laing and Will Munro, revel in homo-erotic desire and perversion. Their lush performances offer a counterpoint to the hetero-normative issues (i.e. marriage) that have focused mainstream gay discourse of late. In Inside the Pavilion of Virginia Puff-Paint (2004), both artists don costumes covered with ornate orifices and removable, conical protrusions. Assuming different positions in their sumptuous tent, the two enact seemingly endless possibilities for penetration, until they collapse in an intimate tangle on the pillowed floor.
