XX_XY The Project is an illustrated encyclopedia on Instagram documenting the words and ways of saying that the various cultures use as nicknames for the genitals, that are a universal taboo!

The project aims to document and 'report' in a direct, naif, ironic and non-vulgar way the universal taboo of sexuality, which is also shown in the use of alternative and imaginative terms used to avoid the shame.
