Last Tango in Paris – 50 years later!
The controversy over the butter-rape scene remains.
Non-consensual sex is always rape.
Whether it’s depicted in an erotic and infamous movie like Last Tango in Paris (1972) or more recently in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) or The Handmaid’s Tale, it always reminds us of how vulnerable women are. Of course, in movies it’s acting but back in 1972 the butter-rape scene was too close to reality because the scene with a stick of butter to simulate sex was not consensual.
Before you watch the trailer (link below), here’s a brief explanation.
Last Tango in Paris was one of director Bertolucci’s best and most contentious film, starring mega-movie star, Marlon Brando. The sex scene became more controversial recently then when the film was first released because Bertolucci admitted, in 2013 that the scene was not consensual in that the scene was created without the knowledge of 19 year-old co-star Maria Schneider. He claimed he “wanted her reaction as a girl, not as an actress.” He admitted he didn’t tell her the detail of the butter used as a lubricant. In 2007, Maria Schneider said she felt humiliated and “a little raped.” She added, “Marlon said to me, `Maria, don’t worry, it’s just a movie’.”
Movie, no movie. Acting, no acting. With or without butter. Without a woman’s consent, non-consensual sex is a crime.
Here is the movie trailer with the butter-rape scene (4:31 min – butter scene is at about 1:30)
Consensual sex is the natural order of things
Much has changed in the 50 years since the making of the Last Tango in Paris and parts of the law have been strengthened to help protect women from non-consensual sex.
Consent means actively agreeing to be sexual with someone. Consent lets someone know that sex is wanted. Sexual activity without consent is rape or sexual assault.
Sex with FRIES ❣️
- Freely given. Consenting is a choice you make without pressure, manipulation, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Reversible. Anyone can change their mind about what they feel like doing, anytime. Even if you’ve done it before, and even if you’re both naked in bed.
- Informed. You can only consent to something if you have the full story. For example, if someone says they’ll use a condom and then they don’t, there isn’t full consent.
- Enthusiastic. When it comes to sex, you should only do stuff you WANT to do, not things that you feel you’re expected to do.
- Specific. Saying yes to one thing (like going to the bedroom to make out) doesn’t mean you’ve said yes to others (like having sex).
You get the final say over what happens with your body. It doesn’t matter if you’ve hooked up before or even if you said yes earlier and then changed your mind. You’re allowed to say “stop” at any time.
The new consensus: No butter with the FRIES
No butter please!
The other modern-day, natural order of things in women’s sex lives is the use of natural lubricants. There is widespread consensus among millions of women, especially those in the ‘over-30-something’ group, that going natural with one of the fastest growing sex accessories, CBD oils, is one of the smartest things you can do for your sex life.
