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.

Deeply moving
20 July 2003 | by ogami-ittoSee all my reviews

The Vagina Monologues, both in book and visual form, is one of the most moving experiences of our times. An attempt to enlighten, entertain and to bring a "taboo" out of the shadows. Why women talking about their sexuality should be considered taboo in the first place escapes me but some of the comments here (especially the ones labelling it "disgusting") seem to be written by people still trapped in the 1950s. The Vagina Monologues is a heartfelt celebration of female sexuality and a condemnation of those who attempt to supress it. Alternating between humor (the list of slang names for the vagina) and more disturbing material (the rape material) the film attempts to take in all aspects and attitudes. A compelling achievement.
