Peg the Patriarchy

Meet the Toronto Sex Educator behind Cara Delevingne’s ‘Peg The Patriarchy’ Met Gala Look

In a video by The Independent, the supermodel shares that wearing “Peg the Patriarchy” on her chest is about female empowerment and “sticking it to the man,” but Luna is quick to clarify that her design, which she trademarked in 2015, is not about punishing people, or men. “Patriarchy has no gender, it’s a system. Pegging is a sexual metaphor… It’s a fantasy about subversion,” she says, sharing how fantasy is often used to explore power dynamics, in sex and beyond. “‘Peg the Patriarchy’ is about subversion, not about an anal sex act, and not about men. It’s a metaphor about subverting all of these behaviours that continue to make us subservient within a system, within a gender binary, within how patriarchy supports other systems like white supremacy.”

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
