“Wetlands” Is Sure To Be The Grossest Movie Of The Year

"The Most Disgusting Coming Of Age Film Of All Time"

A few years ago, I was obsessed with reading Wetlands by Charlotte Roche, but only a few pages at a time, because the subject matter — one woman’s absolutely filthy hygiene habits and obsession with her bodily functions and fluids — was kind of stomach-turning. But as a bit of a gross girl myself — though not at all to the degree that Helen is — I was titillated by the book’s willingness to get completely and utterly vulgar, plus I got a kick out of the way she called her inner and outer labia “ladyfingers” and “dewlaps.” Anyway, a film version of “Wetlands” hits select theaters this Friday and critics who saw the German film at Sundance called it, amongst other things, “Eww is the warmest color” (a play on last year’s French hit, “Blue is the Warmest Color”) and “the most disgusting coming of age film of all time.” Prepare yourself for everything from masturbating with vegetables and oozing hemorrhoids, to guys jacking off on spinach pizza and very, very dangerous pubic hair grooming.

Can A Woman Write Porn And Still Call Herself A Feminist?

Just wait until the real feminists hear about this. A pornographic German novel so graphic it’s caused people to faint at public readings will be published in the UK next month, and it was written by a woman — a woman who calls herself a feminist. Charlotte Roche’s Wetlands shot to the top of Amazon’s worldwide best-seller list last year when it was first published in Germany. Featuring an 18-year-old heroine who explicitly reveals her sex life and “has a totally creative attitude towards her body,” the novel has provoked a debate over whether Roche can call herself a feminist while writing porn. “Men think they can be disgusting and sexual and stuff, and now I’ve shown them that women can do the same,” Roche has said. “I am very much for pornography.” The novel is an example of an increasingly popular genre: chicks who write racy erotic stories, including the bestselling The Sexual Life of Catherine M, an explicit memoir by the respected Parisian art critic Catherine Millet, and The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle de Jour, a book that started as an anonymous blog.
