"What Was She Thinkin'?"
What_Was_She_Thinkin'? (29 Oct. 1999) was the 9th episode of Cinemax soft core series Pleasure Zone, and is the last of the 7 that have been released on DVD. The four sex scenes with two women formula is back. A guy is on his way to meet his pleasure zone date, and fantasizes a sex encounter with his dream girl, Cheri Lacey. When he gets there, his date, Brandy Davis, is having sex with an old boyfriend, and was not expecting a Pleasure Zone date until the next evening. She keeps our hero waiting outside her door while she finishes with the boyfriend, and then invites him in. (Sex scenes two and three there). It is hate at first sight. He likes large, big breasted brunettes, wants to take her out for a drink and the best steak in town, and is a religious staunch republican. She, on the other hand, is a petite blonde with moderate sized breasts, an atheist, vegetarian, non-drinker, and, worst of all, a Democrat.
They start flashing each other by way of defending their body types, and next thing you know, they have a whole night of great sex. When they log in to Pleasure Zone the next morning, they discover that the date was a computer slip-up, but decide to stay with each other. Both women show all three Bs, and the lighting was good. This was a very good episode in terms of nudity, and Brandy Davis has real charisma in front of the camera. This is on the high end of C for the genre.

This Italian adaptation of the Marquis de Sade's
masterwork (120 Days of Sodom) has managed to stay controversial for nearly 30 years.
It was first screened in Britain at the Old Compton Street cinema
club in 1977. It was shown in its full uncut version without a
certificate. After a few days, the cinema was raided by the police,
who confiscated the print and threatened to arrest the cinema owners
Pier Paolo Pasolini,
stayed completely faithful to Sade's text, but relocated the story
from the France of the 1790s to the last days of Fascist Italy in
the mid 1940s. By doing so, he posited that the treatment of the
people at the hands of the Fascists was unchanged from the way the
people had been used by the old aristocrats in the Days of Kings. In
both cases, the people merely existed as sub-human slaves, for the
pleasure of the state and the plutocrats, to be the property of the
rich, or even to be sent to war to defend the other property of the
For those of you unaware of the
historical background, Mussolini was deposed and arrested in July of
1943, after which Italy negotiated an armistice with the Allies. The
Germans intervened, taking all of Italy's major cities, and
liberating Mussolini, who was then established as Hitler's puppet in
a "new" Italy (RSI), which was headquartered in Saló in Northern
Italy, near Venice. This lasted until 1945, when Il Duce was killed. The
German-controlled Italy of the 1943-45 period was called the
"Republic of Saló".
Many people claim that this was
predicted by Nostradamus in this quattrain:
Weep, people of Milan, Lucca, Florence.
When your great Duc will climb on the chariot.
To move the seat closer to Venice,
When the Roman columns will be replaced.
The film is in four parts, following
a "Circle of Hell" structure loosely patterned after Dante's
1) Young people are rounded up by the Fascists.
Some are made into collaborators, others into prisoners. All are
transported to Salo, to serve as the slaves of four perverted
2) Circle of Mania: the young people are used for
the carnal pleasure of the nobles.
3) Circle of Shit: the young people are forced to
consume and otherwise engage in contact with various excremental
functions, further degrading them and establishing their complete
subservience to the nobles.
4) Circle of Blood: the young people are tortured
and killed in grisly ways, thus showing that they are not even
considered human by their masters, but rather creatures whose very existence
solely for the amusement of the powerful.
This film has been banned and censored for years,
and is recognized as one of the most perverted of all time. That's
somewhat misleading. It isn't really as shocking as people have made
out. The young people are naked all the time, there are many rapes,
and there is some explicit shit-eating. In the final portion, there
are some flesh-burnings, a scalping, a tongue removal, and an
eye-gouging. On the other hand, the sex is not XXX explicit, in that there are no
erections or penetrations or even gynecological camera angles. The
only explicit gore is the scalping, which looks realistic. Other
than that, you can see much more explicit gore in the Italian
It was to be Pasolini's last film. He was murdered in
still-unexplained circumstances shortly after the film was
completed. The resultant publicity, as well as the bans and
censorhip, gave Salo a mystique which it did not otherwise merit,
and transformed an obscure art film into a coveted and widely
discussed cult item.
The prestigious British Film Institute, perhaps to
atone for the film's long banishment from the UK, has dedicated a
very comprehensive website to this film, including comments by the
director, excerpts from Sade's book, and a history of the film's

here is a
history of the censorship of the film in the UK and elsewhere.

Hey Uncle Scoop,
I was watching Newlyweds (The Jessica Simpson/Nick whomever
show) on VH1/MTV for some reason....and they had an episode of
her getting into a wetsuit bouncing around getting ready to swim
with dolphins (Guess she didn't hear about the thing with Demi
Moore....). I dont know if any of the readers taped that but it
shows quite a jiggle. Considering how UNinteresting she is when
she opens her mouth I would only consider watching the show if
it contained her jumping up and down the full 30 mins.
I think personal views of a movie all depends on your frame of mind
while watching it for the first time. If a movie is hyped too much,
there's no way it can live up to your expectations (eg. "Citizen
Kane"). If you go into a movie thinking it's going to suck, it
probably will (look at all the reviews for "Gigli"). If you
saw "Dumb and Dumber" for the first time while in a somber mood, you
probably thought it was
shallow and stupid. If you were giddy the first time you saw "Unforgiven"
you probably thought it was slow and boring. But if you were the
mood for a laugh-out-loud comedy or a slow, tense western,
respectively, your view of these movies would dramatically change.
The best way to watch a movie for the first time is with no
expectations (not the same as low expectations) and in a genre for
which you are in the mood. The first time I saw Austin Powers, I had
no idea what it was (I had been in Europe for 4 months),
except that it was a Mike Myers comedy. I liked his movies from
"Wayne's World" to "So I Married an Axe Murderer" and was in the
mood for a comedy. I immediately fell in love with it. Contrariwise,
I first saw "A Clockwork Orange" within hours of being in a car
accident with my sister (the car was totalled and she was taken to
hospital briefly for observation). It was about 5 years before I
could watch that movie again.
OK, there's my 2 cents.

'Caps and comments by Brainscan:
As close as The Gimp can figure, the following are the most capped women in The Funhouse with numbers greater than 80 are:
A couple of things stand out...
||Number of movies
||Number of times capped
|Jennifer J Leigh
Kari Wuhrer has no movie capped twenty times. Her highest number, for Vivid, is 14. But she has eight movies capped at least ten times, which is remarkably consistent. Kate Winslet beats that record, however, as every movie in which she has appeared in the buff has been capped ten times (recall the median number of times a movie has been capped is two). Kate is the Hank Aaron of nekkid babes.
Nicole Kidman's naked days are probably over, but if she made one more movie along the lines of Dead Calm, she would take over first place.
Sophie Marceau and Rosanna Arquette are exceptional for overlapping reasons.
Most of Sophie's movies are not available as Region 1 DVDs, which means the large cohort of North American cappers has difficulty capping them, yet she is close to second place. If and when those movies do come out in Region 1 or region-free formats, there is good reason to predict she will become number 1
Two of Rosanna's best performances (The Executioner's Song and The Wrong Man) are not available in DVD. When they do hit the market... and the Wrong Man is my personal pick for movie I would most like to see on DVD... Rosanna could make a serious push for first place.
Okay, enough of that bullshit. Today's stuff is more of me digging out from movies capped for other reasons. In fact, something of a theme pops out: these are the babes, most often capped because they appeared in movies with A-list nakkid women. Think of them as going along for the ride.
Top among them has to be Debra Cole, because every time Jennifer Connelly has been capped in The Hot Spot, there was Debra. In what may be a first, I have isolated Debra and cut out Jennifer, even though that should be a high crime or misdemeanor.
Second are the list are two women from Eyes Wide Shut, Julienne Davis and Lisa Leone. I realize there is a third, masked woman, but I never got that far into the movie because it was so unremittingly, self-consciously and overwhelmingly gawd-awful. Thought I'd never say that about a Kubrick movie.
I suppose, in aggregate, the legion of nekkid babes in Showgirls has been capped most often as side dishes to Elizabeth Berkley. First among them is Gina Gershon.
Other familiar names in that group include Rena Riffel and Bobbie Phillips. Rena has the distinction of appearing in both high-profile stripper movies, Showgirls and Striptease. I more than kinda like her and, when I first saw it, was tres impressed with her gynocam performance (collage 1).
- Rena Riffel
- Bobbie Phillips
Two women who had nice topless scenes in Showgirls were Bethany Chesser and Maria Diaz, playing showgirl hopefuls. Dame Elizabeth appears topless in Maria's first collage.
Joining Bobbie Phillips as primo backstage eye candy were Dante McCarthy and the ever popular, never to be forgotten Uncredited Stripper. Long may she live.

HUFFINGTON DROPS OUT OF RACE
Leaving In A Huff - Tuesday, TV pundit and anti-SUV campaigner Arianna
Huffington, who was pulling about 2 percent in the polls, withdrew from the
California governor's race. She didn't throw her support to someone else
but said she'd work against the recall because it's the "one way now to
defeat Arnold Schwarzenegger."
Well, either that or a time-traveling killer robot.
She'll never forgive him for starting the Hummer craze.
Here's a plan that might work: promise to stop talking if Arnold loses.
Considering her support is within the margin of error, it's kind of hard
to throw nothing to someone else.

curds and a fried onion on a stick. These join last year's hit, the fried
Twinkie, and such favorites as fried corn dogs, okra, pickles and ice
cream. The new treat expected to be this year's favorite: the fried Oreo
Coming soon to the freezer section at Wal-Mart.

BRITNEY THE "MAN" WITH JUSTIN
She's Not Bad, But He's A Cad - Britney Spears told GQ that she doesn't
think having sex made her "a bad person," and that she only did it with
Justin Timberlake after three years of dating because she thought they were
going to get married. She also said she's always been a tomboy and it's
hard for her to let a man take control, so "I've always ended up being the
man in the relationship."
In fact, she has a hard time managing the fake breasts and high heels.
That's why they broke up: Justin wanted to be the man, and that
obviously wasn't going to happen.
Justin dumped her before she could propose.
ELTON'S $2 MILLION GARAGE SALE
Gilty Pleasures - Sotheby's auction house raked in over $2 million (US)
Tuesday, selling almost the entire contents of Elton John's London home.
The items ranged from a 1617 portrait of Queen Elizabeth I to fancy antique
furniture, gilt mirrors, candelabras and glass baubles, to bric-a-brac like
two matching stone poodles for $250. The seller said none of it had any
real connection to Elton: he just bought it all during a six-month shopping
spree and told his decorator to "make something out of it." But now, he's
decided he wants his house to have a "minimalist look."
So he's filling the house with minimalist bric-a-brac.
The designer's fee to create his minimalist look: $5 million.
There was no connection to Elton, except that it all looked really,
Elton never even sat on the furniture...which could either be a plus or
Elton's walls were covered with portraits of famous queens.
P. DIDDY TO RUN MARATHON
P. Sweaty - Sean "P. Diddy" Combs announced Tuesday that he plans to raise
money for charity by running in the 26-mile New York marathon. He said it
would get pretty rough around the 13th mile, so he'll need support from
fans -- "water, Gatorade, whatever."
His strategy for winning: his posse will shoot anyone who passes him.
A black man who looks like P. Diddy running down the street? He'll make
it about two blocks before the cops beat the bejeezus out of him.
