The True story of Female Orgasm
"Science, Sex and the Ladies is saying the things about female orgasm that society needs to hear but continues to resist...A must see for people everywhere. I support this movie 100 percent."
- Betty Dodson
The Indianapolis Free Thinking Feminists got together and enjoyed a little Science, Sex and The Ladies. It was a lot of fun. Trisha and Charlie were there to take questions (First time we had AnC representation at one of these shindigs) We had a great response from a great group. We really loved sharing with them.
Leigh McEwen had a few friends over this weekend for a fun and ab fab food filled showing of SSL. With loaded potato dip that is as addictive as crack and plenty of wine, the enduring phrases of the night were "Rub One Out" (it's pretty much the answer to everything) and "Rub it, don't poke it."
Pat Eberle held a small screening for her book club this past weekend in Greenfield, IN. She and these long-time friends of hers had some good food, some laughs, and some good discussion!
One of our fantastic cast members thought some of her and her husband's couple friends would like Science, Sex and the Ladies, and felt they should hear what it had to say. She was particularly interested because she knows they have children and really wants the message to get to parents in particular. However, she worried that because of the nature of the movie (Sex and all) they wouldn't be quick to sign up for a group showing. So, we decided to have a "Silent Screening" where she mailed them loaner copies and a quick anonymous questionnaire. They were asked to watch, fill out the questionnaire, and send it to us at AnC. All is anonymous, except that there are particular questions we have permission to put up on the website.
We weren't sure how this was all going to work out, but I'm excited to say we received our first questionnaire! As we get more (it may be awhile, though. These all went to couples with small children...it gets hard to find time to watch a movie, ya know?), we'll add them here.
Now, here's a bit from the first response. We don't know much about this person, and we can't be sure if this is from a male or female (2 questionnaires were sent to each couple to fill out separately), but here you are...Responder #1
Responder 1: She/he "learned a lot" and said "it also caused me to question beliefs and ways of thought." She/he most enjoyed the information the movie provided but did worry that the style the info was presented would "allow for mockery or uncomfortable fear to take over." (We have to admit, there are no punches pulled in how we demonstrate and discuss. It can be pretty...bold at times).
What did Responder #1 want to tell others about this movie? "Give it a chance. Listen to what is being said and don't fear the way some of it is presented. allow yourself the opportunity to learn about yourself, for yourself.
Thanks, Responder 1!
Vladamir Barash, one of our awesome kickstarter backers hosted our second small group showing with a few of his friends. They also supplied us with some excellent feedback.
McKenzie McCarthy hosted our first small group showing in Bloomington Indiana with nine of her friends and complete with some themed boob cookies to snack on.
