Piss Off is a LGBT+ documentary that explores a long-practiced erotic fetish from the point of view of a gay millennial who expresses it as performance art. Known online as “Athleticpisspig,” he uses video and internet to demonstrate and perform “water sports” or piss play with other gay men in various ways. He travels the world to act out this activity, in public and semi-public spaces, with individuals or groups, to examine and break social norms–to create “art” from shared piss play – a fetish which is a “closet within the gay closet.” Followed by more than 80,000 subscribers, Athleticpisspig’s work will elicit many judgments--from degrading and decadent to arousing and celebratory. It’s certainly defiant and challenges the viewer to re-think the human nature behind the shadowy world of erotic fetishes. And the old question—since ancient Greece, through the Renaissance to burlesque, Eakins, Manet, and Mapplethorpe—is it mere pornography or groundbreaking art worthy of consideration and criticism? The film poses these questions which viewers must answer for themselves.
