Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE July 1973 Lovelace asking the doctor, "how would you like it if your balls were in your ears?" By now everyone must know the plot: our heronine is left unsatisfied by the sexual attentions of several embarrassed men, until a doctor discovers that her clitoris is in her throat. Hence she is satisfied only by fellatio, a middle-class masculine dream of considerable appeal, juding by the profits and the ire of law enforcement agencies. This movie has become the fulcrum for the craziest seesaw spectacle of recent years, an extended sexual joke (in only slightly different form than the thousands G. Legman complied and analyzed in The Rationale of the D i r ty Joke), assulted my millions of wel- come dollars and the combined energies of local, state and federal censors, who seek to punish its imagined excesses. Surely the craziest spinoff has been a Houston judge's contention that DEEP THROAT was confiscated and felony indictments returned against its exhibitors because the movie so degraded women. Up until now the city fathers have never lifted a finger (well, maybe one--the middle one) to upgrade the status of women. So what's going on It is not that distinctive among hard-core movies; its production values are uneven, its lighting dim and its plot sometimes overwhelmed in the observance of hard-core ritual (prolonged sexual mechanics, a kind of trance- like fascination with dynamic anatomical detail), but DEEP THROAT does have people who comfortably resemble actresses and actors rather than the usual energetic streetfighters that hump their way through the storefront features, and the producer has unabashedly discarded any pretense at moralistic observations on thevalue of personal idiosyn- cracies. DEEP THROAT Is playful on the surface and vicious underneath, like so many sexual comedies, especially American ones. I cannot forget its capricious, laughing taunt to puritan America (for which its creators are paying dearly)-- " Different strokes for different folks"--or forgive the cruelty of its foundations-- the resentment voiced by Linda here? Well , it's the same old shuck: Daddy will protect you, little girl. Daddy will decide what's good for you to see and what's good for you to be (in case you get the two mixed up). Daddy will protect you--from such bad deams, for instance, as Daddy himself has about women and sex and what might feel good to him, if he didn't really believe it was nasty. From quirky little dreams that Daddy has about how insatiable are the sexual appetites of women (and I do mean appetite). From fuzzy little fantasies of sexual mutlation made comically satisfying for him at your expense. And above all from being able to find out any of this for yourself to judge its worth or truth or simple whimsical irrelevance. Yes, Daddy will keen you safe from all the sights and sounds that make your world a place to grow in, from all the doubts that might begin, your education, from all the lies made large enough to see and hear and so to learn from them what Daddy really wants from you--to fashion a creature/slave that will devour him and submit, daddy, daddy, you bastard, I'm through. ELECTIONS (cont. from Page 1) I feel that the Vice President should coordinate and organize the projects of the various task forces. The Vice President should also serve as a liaison between the NOW chapter and the HCWPC. I have both the time and energy to devote to these and other duties of the Vice President. LINDA FEAHR Candidate for Secretary I am running for the of office of Secretary because I feel that to work for and with NOW in this manner is the best way for me to help the movement at this time. I attend the meetings regularly and have taken the minutes at the last two business meetings. I am aware of the duties of the secretary and I am ready to devote my energy to accomplishing them. Should I be elected I am hoping to work closely with the other officers to coordinate the activities of the group and guid NOW in every more vital directions. JOAN RITTER, Candidate for Treasurer A devout feminist. I have served on the Employment and Education task forces and coordinated the Speakers Bureau of the Harris County Women's Political Caucus during the campaign for the Equal Legal Rights Amendment. I am currently Director of the Women's Center. I have studied managerial accounting at the graduate level and expect this training to aid me in the office of Treasurer. One of my goals for the coming year will be to encourage active participation in NOW of all members.
