Episode credited cast:


An actor in a black leotard with tight-fitting cap demonstrates the sex life of the male spider, who has six eyes, eight legs, spinnerets to produce silk thread, but no penis. She shows us how the spider must press against his genital opening to collect sperm on his hand-like appendages. Then she demonstrates how he would approach the big, aggressive female carefully, without vibrating the web (she might think he was a fly and eat him). He sneaks up under her, places his hand in her vaginal pouch, and then runs off. Written by <>

Green Porno (2008)

In 2008 Isabella Rossellini got to display her fascination with insects by creating eight short films that show us how they have sex. You might be asking who wants to know about insects and their sex lives as I certainly didn't want to learn about it but as it would turn out, these eight films are quite funny, weird, surreal and at times downright smart in their imagination. Rossellini wrote all eight shorts, co-directed them and also plays the insect in each. There's some vivid colors here, strange cinematography and just an overall nice feel to each of them. Running anywhere from a minute to two, this series is certain unique in not only the visual style but in the way the stories are told. The actress dresses in the bug outfits and narrates her action, which usually shows the way the creatures have sex and reproduce. Doesn't sound like your cup of tea? Just watch one of the films and you'll be hooked.

Green Porno: Spider (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Six eyes, eight legs and no penis. That's the life of a spider who has one of the more interesting sex lives but I'm not sure how to explain it without getting too graphic and banned from the site. Once again the actress brings the sex lives of insects to life and really delivers another very good episode.
