Susa Tyrniluoto
I am a Finnish fine artist and wellness entrepreneur, committed to individual well-being and social equality.
My artistic work has primarily explored issues of sex-gender and sexuality, as seen in projects such as 'On The Battlefield Between Sexes.' As a photographer, I specialize in nude, boudoir, and kinky-themed photo shoots, available at my Kinky Art Cafe studios in Tampere and Helsinki. I also welcome requests for photo shoots at other locations.
Currently, I am delving into the mysteries of consciousness with my ongoing project, 'Portraits of the Soul.' – During remote energy healing sessions, I have received intuitive images that guide me in creating portraits. Remarkably, clients have reported that these portraits depict their lives with astonishing accuracy, reflecting significant aspects of their personal histories and emotional landscapes.
In addition to my artistic work, I practice holistic wellness through traditional methods such as Chinese medicine acupressure massage and Finnish joint manipulation therapy. My approach is to integrate these practices to promote comprehensive wellness and balance in both body and mind. Learn more about my wellness services at

In my collaborative artwork, "100 and One Genders," (2017) participants defined their experience of femininity and masculinity on a 0–100 numerical scale.

As an artist, I have primarily focused on the subjects of sex-gender and sexuality.
Through my project "On The Battlefield Between Sexes," I have sought a way to define gender that would reconcile the conflicting views of natural science and social science gender studies. My goal is also to demonstrate that gender-unequal laws can be challenged with scientific arguments.
The accompanying image is from the work "100 and One Sex-Gender Variations," where participants define their own experience of femininity and masculinity playfully on a 0–100 scale. I wanted to show how few people define themselves as 100% female or male.
I also want to challenge the sociological research, where sex-gender is typically divided into the social (gender) and biological (sex) components; The concept of gender was developed in the 1960s-1970s to justify genital surgeries on infants with intersex traits, even when there were no medical justifications for it.
In many languages, such as Finnish, there is only one word that encompasses both the social and biological dimensions. Therefore, I propose using the terms 'sex-gender' together in English.
Redefining sexuality.
Traditional definitions of sexuality (hetero, gay, lesbian) are not sustainable in the light of current biological knowledge, as sex is seen in biology as a spectrum rather than boxes. Therefore, I define sexuality not based on boxes but rather as a fetish—interest in, for example, masculinity, femininity, or different body parts. This allows for a more precise description of sexuality than what vague gender-box-focused expressions can define.
