Dangerous When Wet

Super-8 on video, 5 minutes, 1993

Dangerous When Wet is the story
of a first orgasm and the difficulty in finding a language to describe that experience. The narration discusses the combination of fear and pleasure that informs sexual experience, while the images reveal a subtext of desire that occurs between women, and spoofs the stereotypical associations of female anatomy with natural forms and objects.
