Zen Pussy: A Meditation on Eleven Vulvas

Cast: Revi Airborne, Oriana Bolden, Kate Bornstein, Emilie Brough, Barbara Carrellas, Betsy Caygill, Brett Isis Fisher, Celine Germain, Kaos Kitty, Letty Neely, Annie Sprinkle.

Director: Joseph Kramer

Production date: 1999

Length: 60 min.

Extras: Eleven minutes of ads for various workshops, books, and movies.

Audiovisual quality: The video consists entirely of crisply focused close-ups. The lighting is pleasant and natural-looking. The locations are quiet, with very little background noise of any kind. The audio consists of deep breathing, thrilled sighs, uninhibited giggles, and the odd tummy grumble, plus the ring of a chime to herald each vulva as she first appears.

Ratings note: There's no sex in the usual sense, not even masturbation. The "sex rating" above refers to the overall erotic and inspirational vibe of this movie.

The concept: The movie opens with one-minute previews of each vulva, followed by the main sequence in which each view lasts about four minutes. The women and the camera are both stationary. No hands or toys ever appear, but interesting sounds and a little bit of wriggling suggest that the women are fantasizing and/or watching themselves in the monitor and/or engaging in playful naughtiness just offscreen. Pelvic muscles ripple in Kegel-type rhythms. Dewy and milky vaginal secretions occasionally glisten in the light.

The vulvas in this collection run the spectrum from unadorned to bejeweled, bushy to bald, and petite to pillowy. Care has been taken to include a variety of skin and hair colors. One performer sports post-op male-to-female transsexual genitals, which might be less than obvious to the uninitiated. Subversive. I like it!

Thumbs up: Zen Pussy is a thoroughly celebratory, multi-purpose production. These images could definitely be contemplated while seated upon a zafu, in crepuscular light, with exotic incense wafting. Or the movie might set the mood at a rowdily enlightened sex party. Or a woman might watch it alone to satisfy her curiosity, or to receive reassurance that all vulvas are unique and beautiful, or perhaps even to begin healing the wounded relationship that so many of us have with our own bodies.

Thumbs down: There are no chapter breaks, and it would be nice to have one between the prelude and the main section. The viewer could then choose a short, medium, or full-length meditation, depending on the time available. It's also a shame that the DVD doesn't include a director interview/commentary or a behind-the-scenes featurette. Zen Pussy is a fascinating movie, and I wish I knew more about its history.

Themes: Softcore, exhibitionism, multiethnic cast, MTF transsexual (one scene only).

Condom use: None needed.

Juice-o-meter: Very high. I have a relentless urge to pet and lick the screen. I also like the way my breath falls naturally in synch with the breaths on the soundtrack. It's surprising to feel so aroused when no faces or full-body shots ever appear. I think the movie works for me simply because all of the vulvas are so individual and expressive. If you're fond of female anatomy, Zen Pussy can certainly be appreciated as masturbatory material, as well as meditative material.

Final analysis: I first saw this title for sale about three or four years ago. It sounded unusual and attractive, but I hesitated because I couldn't find any reviews. I wish I hadn't waited so long. The makers of Zen Pussy have taken a simple yet uncommon concept, executed it elegantly, packaged it with a lovely piece of cover art, and created a movie that's now on my list of personal favorites.
