Interview between Richard Prince and Vito Acconci, Bomb Magazine, 1991.

RP They always talk about your voice. You really think you would have been able to fuck anyone without it (using your voice as a sexual persuasion)?

VA It’s not that I’ve used my voice as a sexual persuasion. I hope I’ve never tried to persuade anyone to fuck me. My voice probably has, for some people, a storage of sexual associations (Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino). Also, it seems to come out of some depths, so it probably promises intimacy, sincerity, integrity, maybe some deep, dark secret (it ties into biases of Western culture, it seems to go beyond surfaces).
