V. Dentata

June 22, 2008

I watched this movie the other day with my friends.  It was between Teeth, and Zombie Strippers.  I feel good about our decision.  

 

The premise of this movie is a girl who has vagina dentata, toothed vagina.  The movie is made to scare the shit out of jerks, rapists, and plain ol guys everywhere.  I looked up the origin of vagina dentata and found that it is a myth that has existed in many cultures in many continents.  There are many manifestations of how the culture interprets this myth, but most often it is a monster which is to be feared.

The fear of the vagina has brought one interesting and empowering invention.  The Rapex.

An invention created in response to South Africa’s unsightly rape statistics.  

It has little teeth inside it.
