Amazon Studios is betting big on Barbarella for a resurrection of galactic and shapely proportions. The sex-saturated, far-future tale will take center stage on its new streaming service, beginning with a potent pilot. Barbarella first burst onto the sci-fi scene as a crazy comic by French illustrator Jean-Claude Forest and was later transformed into an instant cult classic by Jane Fonda's then husband and director Roger Vadim in the French-Italian film adaptation.
Science fiction provides us with many examples of machines that give you instant orgasms: the Orgasmatron from Woody Allen's Sleeperthe orgasm gun in comedy Orgazmo from Trey Parker and Matt Stone creators of South Park ; the tasp weapon from Larry Niven's novel Ringworld ; and the scary pipe organ that makes Barbarella get wiggly. But there are real-world orgasmatrons too, and the maker of one of them is looking for a new crop of volunteers to test a spinal implant that delivers a pleasurable shock directly to your pelvic nerves. Stuart Meloywhose spinal implant causes orgasms in most women, has patented the device and tested it on several women and men a couple of years ago.
The orgasmatron is a fictional electromechanical device that appears in the movie Sleeperwhich also shows the effects of a related device, an orgasmic orb. Similar devices have appeared in other fictional works. The term has also been applied to a non-fictional device capable of triggering an orgasm-like sensation using electrodes implanted at the lower spine. Author Christopher Turner has suggested that the orgasmatron was a parody of Wilhelm Reich 's orgone accumulator.
It is the year 40, and Barbarella is hot on the trail of Durand Durand and his missing Positronic Ray. Will Barbarella out-pleasure the Excessive Machine? Have STDs been cured 38, years from now or does Barbarella just have really low self-esteem?
So yeah, the sex part is probably what most people remember about this film. The scene used a giant sheet of plexiglass for her to lie on and had a picture of the spaceship beneath it. Then they filmed from above her to give the impression that she was floating in zero gravity.
Please refresh the page and retry. O n an enormous soundstage in Rome indirector Roger Vadim really wanted birds to peck the clothes off of Jane Fonda. Dressed in a chain-mail bra, tight white pants and a shiny cape as intergalactic sex goddess Barbarella, Fonda was locked in an oversized birdcage, her character sentenced to death by hummingbird. The only problem?
We all know that movies don't always do such a great job of accurately representing real life, but that has never been more obvious than when you're watching an on-screen sex scene. In film, women often seem to orgasm at the drop of a hat -- or an orchid petal in the case of "40 Days and 40 Nights" -- and do all sorts of yodeling while they're at it. Most of us know that in reality, a woman's body usually doesn't work that way.
