“When I was in Japan, I noticed how the sexiness of helplessness is exploited in an otherwise closed and refined culture. Making people into objects of desire seemed to be common to traditional kinbaku bondage culture and junior porn, where scantily dressed young girls wearing housemaid aprons, aroused men’s passions. I was intrigued by the idea that the object of desire could simultaneously also be a cleaning tool, and I made my manga-girls into a compensation product, in which the skill of the feet compensates for the disability of being armless.”
