Bara Karin navigates porn, education and technology in feminist art-pop song “Fuck Me Like A Robot”.
Porn if often criticized as it doesn’t depict a realistic picture of human sexuality. It’s patriarchal, male-centred and way too violent and humiliating for women. With the Internet world, it has never been so accessible and, when it’s not allowed, people get really creative to access this kind of content anyways. You know what I mean.
Because of that, a lot of young men and women grow up with a misconception of sexuality. In this context, some organizations are trying to change the game. In Sweden for instance, NoFap is a website and community forum that serves as a support group for those who wish to avoid pornography and masturbation.
This is exactly this topic that Swedish singer-songwriter and producer Bara Karin explores in her brand new song “Fuck Me Like A Robot”. On her debut EP, she blames society and its popular obsession for men. Drawing from 80s pop, her latest single “Fuck Me Like A Robot” imagine the Swedish sin in a world where porn would feature robots instead of human beings (sometimes, it already looks like that to be honest). “Fuck Me Like A Robot” is an unapologetic song for the bedroom, but not only… It’s a political and feminist offering which claims that sexual intercourse is not all about penetration. (and yes, the artwork of her EP represents a vagina).
