Erica Rand, in her book Barbie’s Queer Accessories, examines the ways in which Barbie, arguably one of the most infamous icons of hegemonic femininity ‘can be subversively refunctioned for women’s pleasure’, ‘to challenge rather than abet dominant ideologies’.
She examines ways in which the ‘wholesome, positive, family-oriented’ image of Barbie is deliberately subverted by what adults and others do with her in practice: the creation of SM Barbie, flaming queen Ken, sex-play Barbie complete with dildo and handcuffs, Barbie with painted nipples and pubic hair, cross-dressing Barbie, and (as pictured in On Our Backs lesbian sex magazine) a woman inserting Barbie feet first into her vagina.
Fuck Dolls brings Barbie to life. The exquisite Emerald and her playmate Zahra, two green and pink-haired life sized dolls, awake from slumber amidst an entourage of topless and semi-clothed Barbies and Kens who turn out to be perverts, voyeurs and foot fetishists.
These dolls – both plastic and flesh – are playful, not passive. They bend each other over, dive into latex, plunge head first in a strap-on, fuck each other’s face and pull each other’s hair. Barbies get wet, Ken gets pummelled, and a gallery of femmes receive a hot homoerotic boy-on-boy display.
Fuck Dolls imbues Barbie with alternative understandings, new readings and queer feminist counter-practices, and delivers some explosive orgasms on the journey.
