Her debut album further showcased the new voice of a generation: loud, proud and vivacious. Come ride the G Flip train!

A strut in six-inch heels through movies, music and the media’s portrayal of what it means to work in the sex industry. Pop songs mix with periods in this intimate striptease that uncovers the industry’s secrets.

Using drag, pie graphs and real stories from real strippers, Slutdrop uses Larcombe’s childlike visual art to create a larger-than-life experience. Think: Monica’s House from Playschool but set in the red-light district.

Peer behind the curtains in a story that bares all.
