If hands are our sex organs, what will that look like?

This question came from my daily chat with a friend.
But I found it very interesting if I considered it as a parallel world scenario. This setting changes our behaviors, lifestyle, and objects around us. As the most frequently used body part, ‘hands’ underpin the theme of sex. Project Clap is a short film with three scenes about the scenario that hands are the sex organ of human-being.

When I told this idea to my friends, they burst out in laughter immediately. Me too. I guess we all feel embarrassed or shy so we are trying to cover it by laughter. Besides having fun with a free imagination, I want to reexamine where the sense of shame comes from and how it influences our life.

 

How can our "natural" bodies be reimagined and re-lived in ways that transform the sensitive and often unspoken part into our commonly used hands? There's no doubt that we are living in a world that keeps producing new creatures like cyborgs and AI, I hope this film can be a personal reaction towards the controversy and discussion around them.

Rising Questions

Is the sense of shame toward sex inherent or acquired/developed?

What scenario can we foresee if the functions of sex organs (pleasure and reproduction) are met by inner/outer artificial devices?

If the functions of sex organs get separated from the body, will it bring about any positive influence(Such as reducing the crime rate, or holding the population)?
