It is said if you follow the video carefully you will "be happier and healthier, improve your sex life, and even create miracles..." THE SLUTS AND GODDESSES VIDEO WORKSHOP OR HOW TO BE A SEX GODDESS IN 101 EASY STEPS is a humorous, absurd, heartfelt and worshipful look at SEX. This tape, featuring an all woman cast, is made especially for women to inspire more sensual and sexual pleasure in their lives. THE SLUTS AND GODDESSES VIDEO WORKSHOP OR HOW TO BE A SEX GODDESS IN 101 EASY STEPS utilizes the forbidden and ancient roles of women to achieve personal transformation. Guided through this adventure by eroticist Annie Sprinkle and her team of "Transformation Facilitators" one encounters the more exotic ways to stimulate pleasure such as: flagellation by oak leaves, gender bending, body shaving, sword dancing, ritual body painting, contortions, menstrual blood, female ejaculation, rhythmic deep breathing, primal screaming, group masturbation, passionate safe sex and more in this guided adventure. This dazzling video challenges the boundaries of "femininity," of the "good girl/bad girl" myths and the definitions of sexual "norms." It is meant to unleash women's sexual powers and remind them that sex is sacred. It is blatant and undyingly explicit, an "eye fuck." Annie Sprinkle and Maria Beatty are daring and bold in their approach to a new (or perhaps ancient) freedom of the body.

Imaging Her Erotics: Carolee Schneemann (1993) VHS NTSC, color, 5.00 min

Keywords: Body

The result of year's collaboration between Beatty and Schneemann. Beatty's original video sequences intertwine with Schneemann's own vocabulary and visual style, creating a cumulative history from Schneemann's recurrent themes and symbols. Schneemann's command of painting, sculpture, performance and video art, as channels of self-alteration and transgression, provide a provocative look at feminist art history and depictions of sexuality. Her works through the past three decades are central to the art of the 1990s -- especially the prevalent view of the body as a site of identity and political struggle. Beatty has created a unique, feminist alternative to the traditional "portrait of an artist."
