Go ahead and giggle

A touching health awareness effort - literally.

Shannon Gerard’s Boobs and Dinks exhibit is a multimedia exploration of our naughty bits, in all their varied glory. The crocheted versions (which caused a stink at York U last year) are as much educational tool as tactile toy, however; Gerard is spreading awareness on early detection of breast and testicular cancer, with money from the Early Detection Kits going to Ontario charity Cottage Dreams. We pinched and fondled them live at Open Studio in Toronto, but you can buy the kits at the Toronto Small Press Book Fair on June 7 or buy them online at Etsy.com. Photo by Shannon Gerard.
