DescriptionA look at female sexuality. The first 'episode', a black comedy, is simply called 'Penis Envy' and finds a bride with a banana - eating it, spitting it out, cutting it up...Part two, 'Stop Pushing', reworks pornographic film footage into frenzy. In part three, 'Towards a New Female Sexuality', the mood changes to one of intimacy as we see a woman's loving relationship with her own body. 'Although the film is in three parts, there is one underlying theme, my personal dissatisfaction with the kind/type of sexual relationships men impose on women. The continuity of the film is found in my search for a new female sexuality.' (Rachel Finkelstein)
