More Sex?

Trey Parker and Matt Stone prefer to call it love making. Yes, it's 'Team America' again. "They loved each other very much," said Stone. The scene was originally twice as long before the censors made them trim shots to get an 'R' rating. But the whole joke is that they look very much like puppets with no realistic features. Parker said, 'Look, we put little pubic hair on them.' We’re like, 'No, no, don’t want to do that. We just want them to be little dolls. But even the simple sexual positions were too much for some puppeteers. Some of those puppeteers that had been doing this for 20-30 years, they stepped out of that. They didn’t want to do that. Pushing the envelope is making puppets do things you normally haven’t seen before." What can I say?

For those unaware, we're holding our 'Puppet Erotica' screening next Thursday 11 August at 7pm at Sydney Film School. We have a collection of interesting items to screen and also a 'live' guest appearance! So if you are keen to come, drop Sam a note!! Hope to see you there...
