After all, the monsters that populate our favorite horror flicks and scary stories have long been seen as a metaphor for queerness.
As culture writer Mary Retta puts it in The Atlantic, monsters function as a mirror for society’s deepest anxieties. And with so many in the queer community long forced to hide who they are, it makes sense that the monsters emerging from the shadows in films like Frankenstein and Jennifer’s Body might be manifestations of folks who are exploring their gender and sexuality.
With themes like body transformation, hidden identities, uncontrollable desires, and an overwhelming fear of the other, the horror genre is queer AF.
And I love how contemporary queer creators have claimed the genre as their own. Don’t believe me? Just check out Joe Vallese’s It Came from the Closet: Queer Reflections on Horror and the gay horror documentary series Queer for Fear, streaming on Shudder.
And while horror may not have been at the forefront of my mind when I designed my Cute Little Fuckers, it makes a perfect sort of sense that a queer-owned sex toy company would have a whole lineup of horny monsters just primed to usher you through your own sexual transformation.
In Trinity’s toothy grin, you can see shades of Nosferatu, seen by some as a representation of gay desire.
Princette is the most adorable little kraken the world has ever seen.
Horror films are rife with killer bugs, but we can’t get enough of Zeep, nestled inside a leaf, just waiting to help you explore all your pleasure points.
At a time of year when folks dress up for fun, trying on different identities, becoming different versions of themselves, I urge you to use our monsters as you play with every facet of your own sexual identity.
‘Tis the season, after all.
Until next time. – Step
