DVD Review: Hell

Hell by Cinema Erotique is a 16 minute film about a nun who goes to hell and finds it a place of extreme sexual pleasure. The “dungeon” is full of women being stimulated as punishment for some unknown sins. The only man in film has the job of carrying each woman over his shoulder from the cells to some new torture.

Who knew all the sex toys in hell would be pink? The butterfly and the vibrating nipple clamps look like a lot of fun. Too bad the film is so short. They barely scratched the surface of erotic “torture.” I think it might be a little too “arty” for your average porn watcher. And there's no actual intercourse which would turn a few men I know right off.

The women of Hell are pretty enough. Some of what they get up to is interesting. I loved the woman in head to toe body paint but her “roaring” got on my nerves after a while. I wanted to see her take a more active part in the torture. I think this film needed less “cinema” and more “erotique.”

Sexual Freedom in America

The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance has just released The State of Sexual Freedom in the United States 2011 Report, an in-depth look at some of America's sexual freedom, health, politics, identity, and policy issues. The annual report is Woodhull's capstone project, and was released during a daylong conference on Sexual Freedom Day, September 23, 2011.

"America's discussions about sexuality tend to focus on its risks and alleged dangers rather than on its benefits, advantages or opportunities for growth, intimacy, and pleasure," asserts psychologist
Dr. Marty Klein, one of the report's contributors. "Narratives that support the restriction of sexual rights, of course, undermine fundamental American freedoms-and are the ultimate targets of the work of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance."

Contributors include some of America's best-known researchers, writers, activists, academics and legal experts. Reflecting Woodhull's mission to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right, the report's chapters cover  relationships and family; sexual speech; sexuality education; sexual health; and the freedom of sexual expression

"We are living in a very fluid time for personal rights and liberties." said Ricci Levy, Woodhull's Executive Director. "A broad range of observers suggest that America is in the grip of a 'sex panic', not unusual when so many people are anxious about our country's direction and their own future. This report is intended to inform discussions about sexual freedom from statehouses to houses of worship to the house next door. It is a clarion call for vigilance against invasion into the intimate lives of all of us, regardless of political position." 

The full report is available for download here.
