DescriptionHippocrates believed it served a reproductive function. Aristotle identified it as pleasure-creative. And Freud contributed to its pathologization. The medical profession continues to dismiss it as 'urinary incontinence'. 'It' is female ejaculation and nice girls don't do it... or do they' Employing elements of several genres without conforming to any particular one, NICE GIRLS DON'T DO IT deconstructs conventional meanings attached to female and male sexuality and destabilises meanings around specific visual representations of the female body. Ultimately, the film is a celebration which aims to create a space for another voice to speak about a part of female experience long-shrouded in silence and ignominy.
