Storyline

Coochie Snorcher. Powder box. Toadie. Fannyboo. Mushmellow. Call it what you like, the vagina is many things to many women. Acclaimed writer/performer Eve Ensler is the star of this innovative special that features some of the candid, funny, painful, yearning insights of women talking about their no-longer-so-private part. Based on Ensler's award-winning stage show of the same name, the special includes all-new interviews and behind-the-scenes commentary added to the original performance material. The end result is a daring and refreshingly liberating experience filled with compassion, humor, intelligence and honesty that will leave you thinking inside the box! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Although Eve Ensler claims in the film that the "Coochie Snorcher" segment is unchanged from the actual interview, the original text of the monologue as it was performed onstage involved a 13 year old girl (as opposed to 16) and ended with the proclamation "It was a good rape." Feminist critics accused Ensler of hypocrisy for insinuating that lesbian rape and pedophilia were acceptable and nurturing for young women while later condemning heterosexual rape, leading Ensler to change the girl's age and remove the "Good rape" line.

No One is Indifferent to It
25 May 2001 | by CoenSisSee all my reviews

I have a strong suspicion the comments below were written by a man. This show definately isn't for everyone, but to call it revolting only makes Ms. Ensler's point--that there is such a ridiculous stigma and mystery attached to a woman's sexuality. Men talk freely and frequently about their equipment, I find it amusing that the idea of a woman discussing hers is considered so tasteless.

It didn't leave me wanting to start a revolution--I didn't feel like marching in a parade after seeing this, I didn't want to shout VAGINA from the rooftops...instead, I enjoyed some often hysterical, sometimes tragic and overall witty dialogue.

And it is funny, there's no way around that. The list of different moans is worth the price of admission alone. It's educational as well--did you know the clitoris is the only organ that serves no purpose other than to give please and contains twice as many nerve endings as the penis? As Ms. Ensler says, "Why want a handgun when you can have a semiautomatic?"
