The Movie "Teeth" & The Vagina Dentata Myth



Have you seen the movie Teeth?

When virtuous high school student Dawn (Jess Weixler) becomes the victim of a sexual assault, she discovers that she has an unexpected line of defense: a toothed vagina. But for Dawn, coming to terms with the power and dangers of her anatomical anomaly may be easier said than done. Director Mitchell Lichtenstein's provocative feminist horror flick also stars John Hensley, Hale Appleman and Josh Pais.

Teeth is available on DVD, and the above description comes courtesy of Netflix.

Oh. And here is a bit more on the whole (hole?) Vagina Dentata myth.

Absolutely Not Martha said...

haven't seen it nor even heard of it. if braces were needed, do you think they'd be covered under medical or dental?

Penny said...

Dan W Johnson said...

Ha! I've had nightmares like that, don't need to see the movie. Come to think of it there was this one girlfriend...

Like a woman wouldn't know that she has vagina teeth ;) Men have cooked up the strangest myths about female genitalia. They think we've got the Land of the Lost or something going on down there in the Dark Kingdom.

Does 'dental plan' covers these teeth??? (my dentist! ;))

wouldn't it be nice if that was a natural defense for all sexual assault victims? i imagine rapists and other sex offenders wouldn't be too happy (which would make the rest of us very happy). hmmmm.

Char said...

yeah....pass. LOL I couldn't even imagine having that.

erin@designcrisis said...

I could have used a vagina dentata when I was a teenager... that would show 'em who's boss, right?

mich said...

Most guys are insecure enough when it comes to sex. They're constantly checking to make sure "it's" still there (crotch grab), and comparing size in the urinals. Or else they have that lost feeling, like they don't really know what they're doing in the sack. Then along comes a movie with another reason for them to go run and hide in the closet. Poor things.

Milly said...

Gary Heller said...

The vagina is a beautiful thing, teeth or no teeth. ^~^

Would she have to visit a dentist or gynaecologist?
