We seek to dismantle the historical advertising campaign which continues to plague postmodern consumerism: 'SEX SELLS'.

WHO WE ARE:
FemmeDaemonium is a cooperative performance collective of sex workers and allies which utilises the mythology of the demonization of womxn to make wider statements about marginalised bodies of all kinds. We are inclusive of all gender identities. We are not tolerant to TERF & SWERF ideology. Every FemmeDaemonium production profit shares to ensure each performer is paid for their labour and raises proceeds for a sex worker rights organisation. We are holding an open call for our direct action surrounding the weekend of 8th March, and all artwork donated will be printed for sale with 50/50 proceeds directly to the artist and Women's Strike charity.
Special Patrol Group is a subvertising organization which seeks to reclaim the streets with ad hacking action, because advertising shits in your head!
