UnderRated: Green Porno

I was reminded of the email I received introducing me to this simple series by Isabella Rosellini when she appeared on the Graham Norton Show last week.

Ruf and I were fascinated by her interpretation and the sense of fun that underpinned what was basically a very factual piece recounting the physicality of the sex lives of various creatures, with Isabella playing all the parts herself.

This expose of the sado-masochistic snail is just one of many available on youtube or through the Sundance Channel. I had no idea that those simple animals who criss-cross my paths, demolishing my new green shoots and leaving their slimy trails were such complex sexual adventurers.



Watch and enjoy!

Both a vagina and a penis? That's twice the fun, isn't it? Have you ever wondered what it feels like for the man, Mrs Cake?

Mr Bananas, I would love to know what it feels like for a man. Sadly, my only attempt at poking was a miserable failure http://andeatingit2.blogspot.com/2007/07/rufly-anal_16.html :)

Evolution has resulted in a wonderful diversity of sexual behaviors and reproductive strategies indeed. I recommend Olivia Judson's book (a light read but written by a serious evolutionary biologist) "Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation" for more insights.

Joanna,
That is too weird ! What's the purpose of the spears ? and if you have a penis AND a vagina both, why EVER leave you own shell ? (lol).
Snails into s&m. Who would have thought ? I dread hearing about ladybugs now :)

And I tried on a strap-on once, and felt totally arrogant and conquering and egotistical and not gentle or submissive at all while I had it on.
I WOULD like to know what pussy feels like when you are a man though. Hard to imagine it's as fascinating to them as a hard cock is to us...

BigBen - Suddenly David Attenborough's efforts to bring the natural world to life seem a little light :)

Annie - Most of the men Ive ever met have been totally fascinated by pussy! And I too enjoyed wearing a cock. It changes your whole body posture to counterbalance :)

So when I catch a pair of snails still wrapped in sexual embrace after a night out...and step on them...they're liking it? Ooo Yuck! I'm joining in on kinky snail three way sex... (I need a shower) :-)

Indigo said...

Bloody 'ell! I've always wanted to know what it feels like to have a penis, to have a stiff protruding out of my trousers... but BOTH!! I will never squash snails ever again... nor eat them!! I will have ever lasting respect for the little sex slugs with caravans om their backs Lol

Passion - Well, Id not quite thought of it like that :)

Indigo, I know what you mean. Suddenly their self-sufficiency reaches new heights :)

BigBen - Interesting site but it doesnt have the Isabella factor :P
