Typography and the power of "()"

Via Buzzfeed

The teaser poster for Lars Von Trier's upcoming film, Nymphomaniac, uses a rather clever minimalism to symbolize female creativity with nothing but parentheses.

There was something very familiar about it, but it didn't hit me until I was clearing out some of our old books in the basement:

Interesting how the same symbol can cover the two sides of female sexuality, from the intimate biology of sex to the occasional biological result.
