The College Try – Garfunkel and Oates

What can I say? These two hyperliterate women make me laugh. Plus, they’re truth tellers. I like truth tellers.

    On occasion, Mr. Katz, you are truly crude.  There is nothing funny about this, but totally depressing.  This is the result of homosexualized media drivel contaminating male-female relationships; the death of masculinity and femininty (or, almost)  and just plain cynicism–ugly, rude and crude.
    And, uh, no, I am not a provincial “rube”…
    in fact, I am the woman you say does not exist: the “supermodel” type in looks, History degree from an Ivy school, two foreign languages, and brilliant cooking skills.  I came on this site as a young widow, looking to learn about dating.
    I will not be staying any longer.

    “I can only assume men see it differently??!!”
     
    Sort of.
     
    I wish I had the email address of the (ex)girlfriend who claimed that female genitalia were aesthetically pleasing and men’s were silly-looking … just so I could send her the link to this YouTube video.
     
    That said, I find female genitalia sexually arousing because it’s associated with sex, not because they look pretty. (I can’t fault their descriptions of how it looked.) On the other hand, I don’t have the visceral repulsion that they described. (My visceral reaction is the opposite of theirs.)
     
    Discussing the distinct … aroma which Garfunkel and Oates mention: it’s my understanding that there are a substantial number of pheromones in vaginal secretions. It’s no rose bouquet, but it’s certainly arousing.

    This is kinda funny, but I think it’s much funnier for you Evan, than for us girls.

    Ehhh… it’s not an offensive video, but it’s rather immature and melodramatic and not especially funny. It would be more interesting to know what men think. Karl, thanks for providing your discreet opinions.

    Meh.  I know it’s meant in fun, but the fact that one of the fastest-growing forms of plastic surgery is women having their genitals hacked (“labiaplasty”)* makes me uneasy when I hear anyone talk about how ugly and gross females are “down there.” 
    Besides, I can’t say that I was struck by the smooth pulchritude of the first penis I ever saw.  I liked it – because I was in love with the owner and attracted to him – but I sure didn’t think it was exquisitely beautiful or smelled like roses.

    Couldn’t watch the vid but I’m pretty sure I get the gist and would echo Karl in #5. Some are prettier than others. It is very rare (ever?) in my experience to find one an unappetizing unarousing distance from a rose bouquet.

    I also realize the video is meant in fun but behind it is a unpleasant tone of self loathing that is all to common in females. 
    I heard on a TED talk that 53% of 13 year olds are unhappy with their bodies and that goes up to 78% by the time they are 17. So now the self loathing goes from loathing your female fat to loathing your genitalia?
    Thanks Karl for offering some redeeming comments so I don’t feel so “icky” about the video.

    I thought the video was funny. Esp when the women cringe in horror =P
    @ Marcia, Henriette and Kathleen: I thought you might be taking the video out of context. The song is about a woman who tried to sleep with another woman but was revolted by the idea of going down on her female. How would you say that it shows the woman loathing her own genitalia? She’s not trying to go down on herself….
    And is the message really about self-loathing? I mean..the song describes the smells of the vagina and how it oozes (haha)..are you saying that this isn’t true in real life? How is telling the truth ‘crude’??? I don’t think the singers are saying that vaginas are ugly or gross in general, or that by extension women should hate their vaginas if they aren’t pink and perfect…I don’t think that’s the message. They’re celebrating the vagina actually by poking fun at how it looks. That’s all ;)

    *oops i meant ‘…going down on her female partner’ in the 4th line. Sorry for the confusion!

    I concur with Karl, Frimm and Kath’s points and add that some women are very self-conscious about that exquisite (:)) part of their anatomy. It is a little sad that in moments of vulnerability and caring affection (emotionally intimate sex) that they feel unsafe and fear being judged or rejected.

    Yeah, I’m kind of over hearing how gross the vulva is.

    As a guy I thought the video was cute and funny. I love everything about the vagina. I love the way they all look a little different, smell/taste a little different, have hair around them(hopefully), love the labia and the folds. “Labiaplasty”, waxing, or doing anything to ruin it’s natural beauty doesn’t do it for me. Sorry. I love it the way god made it. :-)

    I’m not getting how poking fun at how the vagina looks is actually celebrating it. I understand that the video is about a woman wanting to be able to be bisexual, but when confronted with an actual vagina, she loses all interest. However, the video made its point repeatedly, literally ad nauseum. If you hate the way another vagina looks, are you going to hate the way yours looks?
     
    Have you ever watched a woman give birth? It looks pretty gross, yet from that comes a new life. Is there a point to going on and on about how disgusting it is?

    Haha, so then what’s behind girls saying they like doing that?

    I understand this was intended as lighthearted fun.  It struck a nerve of sadness instead, and even more so because it was made by two women.  
    I immediately felt sad for all the girls and women who will continue to miss the pleasure, orgasms and deep intimacy that come when they can truly relax and enjoy their bodies being pleasured so intimately by another.  Instead many or most will continue to feel too uncomfortable to really let go, since their fear and insecurities that their pussy is revolting in some way is perpetuated or confirmed (inaccurately in my opinion of course.)
    A video about the sexiness, tastiness, and hotness of a pussy– up close would have gifted your readers with a greater freedom to embrace and enjoy their pussies with complete abandon. 
    Instead, more women will keep their legs closed and feel inhibited, ashamed, afraid and not wanting to revolt their partner.  
    So much pleasure, fun and intimacy that could have been.  So, so sad.

    OMG…what very uptight women visit this site?  The movie was hilarious.  Of course the girls rambled on with half a million different rhyming descriptions about the vagina- that was the point and that’s what made it funny, the fact that they drew it out to the extreme and made everything rhyme, as well.  I know a girl who thought she might be bi and when faced with it found out very quickly she wasn’t. LOL.  This video reminds me of her.  She laughed it off. 
    If they made a video of a straight guy saying how gross a penis is I would laugh my ass off. 
    Ruby, Karen, if you’re that insecure with your own bodies then don’t blame a funny video.  That is your issue.  Others who aren’t insecure with themselves want some laughter.  I think most of my straight female friends would laugh at the video because they are not into vagina either and would find it gross to put their mouth on one!!!  It’s not about saying yours is gross, it’s about saying vagina to a straight female is gross.  To a guy it’s totally different.  Geez, lighten up!!!  Twisting everything out of proportion!!
    Karen you find the video sad?  Seriously?  What’s with all the extreme sensitivity?  Geez nobody can even make a joke anymore.  You women must be a bore!  This was funny.  You want sad, turn on the news and see people getting killed around the world for stupid reasons.  That is what is sad.  Do you ever watch comedy because they make fun of people all the time- both men and women.  Do you take it personally and get all offended at that too?

    Seriously??? @ Karen “… more women will keep their legs closed and feel inhibited, ashamed, afraid and not wanting to revolt their partner.”  PLEEEASE!  Showing that video is going to cause women to feel shamed???  Really??  My self esteem isn’t so fragile that I would be introverted by a silly video.  Bit over the top in your dramatic conclusion of the demise of women’s pleasure and self confidence.

    If the video has any ‘message’, it’s that lesbians should stay away from fake bi-curious women. Cause the night won’t end well.

    A friendly word of advice Evan  – before posting ask yourself “How does this help smart, strong, successful women understand men?”
    I’m glad that I already have gained so much from this site – if this had been the first thing that I had seen on my first visit to the site I wouldn’t be a-coming back!

    @Birdlife:  I think the video can provide insight on how many men may view close-up encounters with vaginas, even though the song is from the standpoint of a bi-curious woman.  I’ve met many a-woman over the years that thought penises were unsanitary and funny-looking, while vaginas were beautiful, delicate flowers that were to be celebrated.
    Truth is, human genitalia (male or female) are pretty funny looking, when you think about it, and they can be flat-out gross when proper sanitary measures are not taken.  At any rate, it was a funny video.  I was entertained.

    @Women who found this offensive/disheartening etc
     
    This just goes to show you you have no sense of humor and/or take yourself and/or sex TOO SERIOUSLY.
     
    If you’re having trouble finding men or keeping relationships going, your lacking a sense of humor about women could be a culprit…or taking things too seriously could be a culprit…or having too thin a skin could be the culprit.
     
    This video wasn’t cruel. Just telling it like it is from a straight female perspective.
     
    The only take away ANY woman should have from this is that the MEN who have commented here are saying, “Hey, we LIKE/LOVE how your genitalia look and smell. It turns us on.” That is the message whether or not you enjoyed the video. Internalize that positive message and don’t be self-conscious. It’s all good.

    Karmic Equation is correct.
    @Birdlife #25 – THAT’S how it helps smart, strong, successful women understand men.

    This is laugh out loud funny, just don’t watch the clip whilst drinking a glass of wine. Totally worth it, but I just snorted it out of my nose. Struck a chord with me, lots of women think they might kiss a girl, and like it, but getting up close and personal downstairs is an entirely different matter!
