Sex: The Annabel Chong Story

"Just how did she find the time to do that?"
4 stars

One woman having sex with 251 men in 10 hours? Hmmm, Let’s do the maths on that.

Now 10 hours - that’s 36,000 seconds – We better take off some time for breaks and stuff. Say, 10 minutes an hour – that’s 100 minutes over the 10 hours or 6,000 seconds. That leaves us with 30,000. 30,000 seconds for 251 men – that’s 119.522 seconds each or just under two minutes for each man.

Two minutes each?

That doesn’t leave much time for each man’s scene to have its natural conclusion.

Inconceivable - How is this possible?

That reminds me of a film I have only heard about but have yet to have the honour of seeing (no, really). Some sci fi porn film was going use the zero gravity trick that was used for the film ‘Apollo 13’. That is, have a 747 go into a steep dive until gravity becomes non-existent. The porn film was planning on having the world’s first zero gravity, er, scene having its natural conclusion.

Thing is though that a sevenfour can’t do the dive bomber thing for very long – only about ninety seconds to two minutes or so. The star of the film said that that didn’t give him much time, but he was a professional, so he was going to get the job done. And apparently he did too, bless him.

So successful was the venture that there’s sequels.

Speaking of sci fi porn, a friend of mind writes erotic fiction with a sci fi twist. The twist being it involves The Phantom Menace characters.

Everybody recognises the homoeroticism between Obi Wan and Qui Gonn (just watch the way Obi Wan caresses Qui Gonn’s cheek at the end of the movie), but my friend quickly got bored with that. So she instead writes Qui Gonn/Jar Jar Binks stories. She thinks the attraction between the two is obvious (the way Qui Gonn handles Jar Jar’s tongue), but I don’t see it.

Then there’s an audio sketch I heard ages ago with Yoda having sex with R2-D2. Ever noticed how Frank Oz’s voice for Yoda is exactly the same as his voice for Sesame Street’s Grover?

Yoda: OOOOhhh Mumma.
R2: Beep dooooooop bbeep beep.
Yoda: Oh Yeah . . .
R2: Beep!
Yoda: Who’s your master?
R2: Diiieep dieep!
Yoda: (slap) Say it! Who’s your master!?
R2: Deeiiip beep brr.
Yoda: Yeah!
R2: Beep!
Yoda: Now! Yessss!
R2: REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every time I see Yoda and R2-D2 now, I hear Grover and I see a vibrator the size of a garbage can with wheels and sentience.

Oh right.

Annabel reached the score of 251 by having sex with 5 men at a time. Well then, that’s much more conceivable.

Ha! Get it? conceive – able. Get it?

Ah, forget it.

Porn: It’s endless laughs.

So is Annabel’s story endless laughs?

Well, no. Not really – not when the harsh light of reality is shone upon this story.

As Jerry Springer asks, why did she do it?

“Why not!?” She replies.

Here’s why not.

Not all the men wore condoms and not all of the men were HIV tested. These are guys who just responded to an ad in a magazine and video – they could have been, and were, just anyone. As I hope you know, HIV can be transmitted from a male to a female when the male’s semen (or blood) gets mixed in with blood from the female who can have internal bleeding.

So did Annabel have internal bleeding?

She sure did – Quite severely too. At round about the 240-man mark she was in so much pain that she had to shorten her attempt from the originally intended 300 to 251.

So why did she do it?

The film tells of a highly intelligent (USC graduate, Presidential debate representative at Cambridge) woman with a not unjustifiable argument about the male stud / female slut hypocrisy. She doesn’t like it and neither should you. But her befuddled feminist logic gets mixed up somewhere in the execution.

As the film develops, it seems things are not quite as they seem with depression, drug addiction, rape, sexuality confusion and the continuation of her porn career in the face of family dishonour entering the fold.

This being a doco on a porn star there are some scenes that raise an eyebrow or two. The most shocking and confronting scene though is something that wouldn’t be seen in a porno.

At the end of this film you are not sure whether this is an expose tragedy or a manipulative promotional exercise. There’s no definitive answer on Annabel’s real motivations although you are left with the impression that all is not well inside the mind of Annabel Chong. It will take more than maths to understand this woman.
