Isabella Does Bug Porn

November 1, 2008

by Will Doig

In a series of green shorts for SundanceChannel.com, Isabella Rossellini enthusiastically performs sex acts as an earthworm, a spider, a bee, and other invertebrates.

Isabella Rossellini is the type of woman who can do virtually anything and remain beloved. For Lancome, she used her enviable lips and cheekbones to sell makeup for fourteen years. For auteur filmmaker David Lynch, she participated in sex scenes that shocked and traumatized American audiences. And this year, she created a series of two-minute indie films about sex in the insect world for Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel. In the films, she dresses as various bugs and graphically describes their mating habits and genitalia. Did she alienate viewers? The network just confirmed that they’ve ordered a second season of the series, this time involving sea creatures. So, apparently, no.

The series, titled Green Porno, is completely original and strangely hypnotic. Rossellini enthusiastically acts out various sex acts while costumed as an earthworm, a spider, a bee, and other invertebrates. Her goal is to both amuse and raise awareness of the animal kingdom’s beautiful diversity. She spoke to the Daily Beast about the project, and why the second installment might be even weirder.

Were you the type of child who collected insects and brought them back to your bedroom?

I’ve always been fascinated not only with insects but with animals in general ever since I was a little girl. I did have boxes of snails, aquariums with ants and flies and all that. That’s where I had all the information to write Green Porno.

From your childhood?

No just from throughout my life, I read a lot of books about animals, I take courses at university on biology or zoology, it’s always been an interest of mine.

Did you emerge from this project with a favorite insect sex act?

I don’t really have one. I’m not interested specifically in bug sex. I’m just interested in animals. What’s interesting to me is the infinite variety. One of the frustrations I have when I read these books is, sometimes they tell you about an animal that does something incredible, then they give you the name of the species and I am not clear what animal that is because it’s a latin name, or it’s a specific species of a subspecies, so I get lost. Or it’s a very exotic animal in Africa or Asia, a special bug I’ve never seen in my life. So I wanted to do very common animals [in Green Porno]. And I wanted it to be funny. My desired reaction to people watching Green Porno was to first laugh, and then to say, oh I didn’t know that about a fly, I didn’t know that about a snail.

Yeah, who knew that earthworms are hermaphrodites who have sex by 69’ing? Do you think it makes human sex seem a little boring?

I feel a little bit embarrassed. When I presented the film, a lot of people wanted to analyze my sex life or my sex pleasure, and to tell you the truth I think it’s a very genuine interest in biology, it’s not a twisted or unusual kinky way of me being interested in sex. I just thought that sex is an interesting subject because everybody’s interested in sex, that it would make a comical film, but to say to you, “Yes, my life sexually has been very strange,” I can’t say, first of all because I’m embarrassed to answer it, and also because I don’t think it is.

I didn’t mean your sex life personally, I just meant humans in general.

Listen, I took advantage of the fact that there’s a certain fixation in people about sex, and that’s why I called it Green Porno. I was very aware that the name was provocative, and there’s a lot of people coming to our site who think it’s porno, and then they get a nice little film. There’s a titillating interest in sex, and I took advantage of that in making a film about how the animals have sex instead of a film about how they take care of their babies. If we made a film called Different Ways To Be Mamas, we wouldn’t get the same hits.

Who made the costumes and which costume was the most difficult to wear?

I draw the costumes, and everything had to be more or less be made with paper, partially because of budget and partially because it is something that everybody can do in their kitchen. It looks like a little homemade theater. I didn’t want it to look like all those special effects and spectacular – I wanted to preserve the homemade feeling, so paper seemed to be a good way. I draw them and I do think of some of the executions, but the people who execute the costumes are two friends of mine. One is Andy Byers and the other is Rick Gilbert. They add a tremendous amount of detail. The most difficult one [to wear] was the worm. I was caught in the different rings and I couldn’t move and I was 35 feet long and I was trapped there all day – without drinking, without being able to scratch my face.

During your research, did you discover any insect mating habits that repulsed you?

Um…no, all of it is fascinating. I mean, some animals are a little more squirmishing than others, but not in terms of sex – sometimes they look funny. I’m now doing a whole new series on marine animals — you know, barnacles, shrimps, squids, starfish, anchovies — and they all have different ways. Some fish even change sex. Males become females and females become males and it becomes even more interesting.

Of the sea creatures, can you give me an example of one of the sex acts that you found the most fascinating?

Starfish. They have two ways of reproducing. One, they can have sex regularly – male exchanging sperm with the female. Or, they can clone themselves.

Really?

Yeah. That, I thought was pretty wonderful. Another one that I loved is that not all shrimps, but a species of shrimp, is born male, then becomes female when it becomes older. Sometimes we also wonder, “What would it be like to be a man?” And a man wonders, “What would it be like to be a woman?” Shrimps don’t have that question. They are both sexes in different moments of their lives.

These films were made specifically to be watchable on a mobile device. Do people want to watch stuff like this while in transit?

We don’t know yet. We do know that more and more people are abandoning magazines, abandoning televison, and they’re getting their information on the web, on the mobile. It seems like mobiles are going to become more and more like iPhones—better screens, much better viewing. The only problem is, to Robert Redford, it seems absurd that you see on mobile a lot of films that were conceived for the big screen—like to see Apocalypse Now on the mobile would not do it justice. Robert Redford was thinking, what if we create an art form that is conceived for the mobile. That’s why Green Porno is very vivid in color, and we decided to do them in a studio because we tried to do them outside but once you have a background it gets all muddy.

You’ve performed in unconventional sex scenes before, in your roles in Blue Velvet and Cousins. Do you seek out these types of roles or is it coincidence?

I think it is coincidence. December 9, I’m doing a reading at the Metropolitan and I cannot believe that the reading that the Metropolitan is asking me to do is about erotic poems of the Renaissance. I’m delighted to do it, but sometimes I think, what is this?

No more porn for Australia?

“Senator Conroy has since indicated that there would be a two-tier system: a mandatory one that would block all “illegal material” and an optional tier that would block material deemed unsuitable for children, such as pornography. ”

Red Hot

September 28, 2008

You’ve heard/looked for the yellow showers, the fecal fantasies. Yet another bodily fluid stays with what belongs with the distorted, alongside fucking  horses and dying from it, pedophilia, and rape (although it’s a very common fantasy amongst women- more on that later) ; that-time-of-the-month, or what my friend affectionately calls Nintendo-week.

So you have the extreme fetishist who’ll look for women drinking blood from a dripping tampon over their mouth. They’ll marvel at overflowed maxipads, stained white panties, and everything that red sex is not.  

Here comes Freud    
So why obsess over such a gross thing as feminine hygiene products gone… unhygienic? Of what I remember of my psych classes, fetish objects serve the function of blocking some trauma by… distorting and amplifying. A single thing of the whole captures the attention of someone in immaturity and sticks with him as he grows- it could be high heels, white panties, unshaved armpits, rubber swim caps. I leave it to your imagination what could have triggered menstruation fetish, but I’d venture to say that Freud would mention the return to the Origins; a bloody vagina.     

In porn, the guys don’t seem to care about the mess, and the girls look more than comfortable. Oral sex is still done. But often, the blood comes from a tea bag inserted into the actress’ vagina. 

Why the taboo? 
Then, why don’t actresses do it when they’re actually having their period? Why hide… a quarter of a woman’s sex life? (for those unlucky for whom it lasts the said week).You’ll reckon that even feminine hygiene product advertising avoids mentioning menstruation by pouring a blue liquid on the sanitary item to demonstrate its absorptiveness.Many religions have traditions that might have contributed to the stigma. In orthodox Judasim and Islam, there’s a ban on sex during menstruation. Some traditional societies sequester females in “menstrual huts”. In Hinduism, a woman cannot be part of religious ceremonies for the first 4 days of the cycle. And I remember when I was in India, the woman who usually cooked for us was not allowed in the kitchen during her period… all she was allowed to do was the cleaning.The only non-X movies I’ve seen that mention menstruation is in My Girl, when Vada gets her first period, she only gets explained about it off camera. Or in Carrie… I remember her first period as the starting point of her telekinisis which led… to murder. No need to say that overcoming the menstrual taboo is hot debate amongst feminists.

 In Menstruation: Porn’s Last Taboo, Trixie Fontaine, camgirl, complains “i was determined that my porn site be honest about me, my sexuality, and my body- how could my site be genuine and real if I ignored and hid the fluid coursing through my cunt once a month?”

On her main page (bloodytrixie.com), you can read “Most porn shows us living our sexual lives as though our periods don’t exist sending the message that bleeding is not natural or sexy. I insist that it’s every woman’s right to be sexual . . . no matter HOW messy her pussy!!! Cyclical bleeding can be beautiful, sensual, freeing, fascinating and fun. I hope you enjoy my unique red gift to you! –Trixie”

Ok fine, there’s looking for period porn, and there’s just doing it. I mean, our hormones don’t just disappear during that time. I guess it’s even more of a reflex to type golden showers or poop show on youporn then to marvel at the monthly shedding of the endometrium and how messy it can get if you want it to be. I’d risk the hypothesis that the only experience that men have with blood is pain and injuries, and that’s why they’re so turned off. But as Trixie would say, isn’t menstruation the ‘sexiest’ of bodily excretions? It does come out directly of the vagina. Although it’s possible that guys might relate more with urine.

Period sex can be good and clean, or messy if you want it to be. Trixie: “I wanted to display my period as fresh, free-flowing, messy puddle of fun, not just something to be stifled and absorbed by a piece of garbage”.

I’ll admit that I’ve never had a sexual fondness for my period. I’ve cursed at it plenty of times. Although it’s kinda reassuring when it comes. I remember being so thin that I wouldn’t even get my period, and I remember missing it- I didn’t feel as much of a woman. While the blood doesn’t bring any comfort and carries some odor, and I can’t say I want to fingerpaint in it,  I definitely find it more natural than, let’s say, the ever-popular stuff that camgirls have to do…extreme penetration shows, bukkake, fucking themselves with beer cans and baseball bats. That stuff you wouldn’t find gross before trying it, so… try this, tell me what you think.
