What happens when your vagina is broadcast on national TV?

Jessie Nizewitz knew she was going to be naked on the VH1 dating reality show Dating Naked. But she didn’t think she’d be, you know, naked. She anticipated, and was allegedly promised multiple times, kosher-for-cable nudity, with anything a bikini would block blurred for air.

In an episode that aired July 31, Nizewitz play-wrestled on the beach with her date. And everything below Nizewitz’s waist was on-screen, unblurred. The episode is no longer available on VH1.com.

Nizewitz is suing Viacom for ten million dollars. The full complaint is available online, and it is quite distressing:

Her complaint alleges she was “continually promised” that “all frontal and genital nudity would be blurred out,” and that she was also “strongly encouraged” to engage in the wrestling session. In perhaps the most cringe-inducing line, the lawsuit goes on to say that “Defendants knew or reasonable should have known that they did not have consent from Plantiff to broadcast her vagina and anus on national cable television.” The saddest part is that Nizewitz requests, in addition to the money, that “all images of Plantiff’s vagina and anus” be removed “from the Internet, including but not limited to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr.” Would that it were so simple to scrub an image from the internet; brave be the soul who tries to succeed where even Beyonce has failed.

An “unidentified man” (I’m sure he’s identified to hell and back at this point if you really want to go looking, I don’t.) became trapped inside a giant sculpture of a vagina. Firefighters were called. Pictures were taken. Next time, try a little foreplay first.

An American exchange student was saved by firefighters after getting stuck inside a giant sculpture of a vagina.

The unidentified man reportedly climbed into the marble artwork in Tubingen, Germany, on Friday as part of a dare.

But, once inside, he found he couldn’t get out.

Five fire trucks and 22 firefighters were needed to help slide the man — who’d become lodged in by his legs — to freedom.

Jodorowsky 1.0

Jodo

Nashville, TN is experiencing a Alejandro Jodorowsky renaissance this month with the Belcourt Theatre’s screenings of some of the auteur’s most important works, leading up to the local premiere of his new film, Dance of Reality.

My fellow local film writers and I all respect the master’s outlandish visuals, his passion for the surreal and his esoteric spiritual explorations, but, of course, his movies aren’t for everyone. After last week’s screening of The Holy Mountain I kept thinking about the film — I’ve watched it many times and this most recent viewing was the second time I’d seen it on the big screen. I came away wondering if I’d seen any other films that paved the way for Jodorowsky, and while early surrealist cinema certainly deserves a nod, if you want to know where Jodo’s roots really dig in, you have to look to the stage, not the screen.

Here’s what the Mutantspace site has to say about Jodorowsky’s Melodrama Sacramental performance piece from 1965…

Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s ‘Melodrama Sacramentral’ was a happening presented by his group, The Panic Movement at the Paris Festival of Free Expression in 1965.Read the rest
