Suicide Girls Interview

Here’s a fun one: Rushkoff interviewed by Daniel Robert Epstein on Suicide Girls.

It’s a particular honor, since the “Babylon” club in the comic is based on my notion of what Suicide Girls could become in coming decades. Like I told Daniel in the interview:

“What has to happen in my story is that in order for our characters to really liberate themselves from Torah, without just being Satanists or anti-Torah, punk reactionaries, is they’ve got to somehow create a marriage between this whole male culture and the female culture that got repressed. If you look in Torah, you can see all the matriarchs in Torah are actually sacred priestesses. All of them along with Sarah and Rebecca are temple prostitutes. There are little hints by the things that they do, who they’re having sex with other than the husband and when husbands are offering their wives up to strangers who come to the door. This isn’t just you offering up your wife — since these are temple priestesses of Sodom or Canaan it’s a blessing. But that whole aspect of history ended up getting repressed. I look around the world now and I actually see things like SuicideGirls as efforts to reclaim some of the power. The survival of the species is about that, whether or not we’re going to reintegrate what we call the feminine archetype back into our understanding of the world.”
