The Flick Filosopher | Sex: The Annabel Chong Story
www.flickfilosopher.com, 17 Aug 2001 [cached]
A Singaporean native educated partially in England, Quek was a sexually adventurous student at the University of Southern California, sleeping her way through the enrollment roster, when she began her career in porn with appearances in movies like I Can't Believe I Did the Whole Team!It was a form of rebellion against the image of "the good girl" of her native culture -- Quek says the Singaporean attitude is to "close yourself up to the world."As a passionate scholar of sexology highly praised by one professor, Quek talks about how misunderstood and misused female sexuality is (and she's right) -- she mentions that ancient religions often used sex as part of their rituals.Her adventures in porn are meant to help her redefine female sexuality -- or at least her own sexuality -- perhaps even recapturing that ancient sense of reverence.Disturbingly, though, Sex demonstrates that Quek's rationale for her behavior has little to do with the psychological needs she is apparently trying, probably unconsciously, to satisfy.Quek is confident only when she talks of her high intellectual ideals.More often, she is strikingly pained and insecure.A trip home to Singapore to visit her parents becomes heartbreaking when her mother -- who had earlier spoken happily and proudly of her daughter as a little girl -- learns of her claim to fame.Quek is dismayed at having disappointed and shamed her mother, yet she has also told of piano lessons that began at age 3, as soon as she could reach the keys.Has she been rebelling not only against the limits of traditional culture but also against high parental expectations?And in London, where Quek lived for a time, she returns with the filmmaker to the place where she was gang raped -- is her "gang bang" an attempt to gain back a sense of control she must have lost then?Most distressing, however, is the scene in which Quek cuts herself repeatedly, drawing blood with a knife to her arm, just because she needs to feel something... anything.As we watch behind the scenes at the making of The World's Biggest Gang Bang video, the director announces that since Quek, after allowing 230 men penetrate her within a matter of hours, is now in considerable pain, she'll only be doing another 21 before calling it quits.Is this just another way to feel something, anything?For all of Quek's talk of female empowerment, there's precious little of that to be seen here.Quek never received the $10,000 salary she was promised for the gang-bang video, and the director who cheated her out of the money has the gall to say on camera what a shame that is.Worse, Quek professes not to care.But money is obviously an issue for her -- on a how-do-I-pay-the-rent level -- because she has to haggle with porn directors over a matter of 50 bucks for her work.Even after her video is such a huge success, she can't make more than $1000 for appearing in a porno.And as for her record-breaking marathon, no matter how much she talks of feminism, it's still couched -- by the men producing and promoting it -- as a "gang bang."It's still about them doing it to her.It's all about her getting screwed... one way or another.But the most ridiculous thing about Annabel Chong's gang bang -- and about all pornography -- is how absurd and unsexy it makes sex look.Fictional depictions of the porn industry -- such as Boogie Nights -- can't approach the oozy ickiness of the real thing.

If Quek was looking to retrieve a sense of the mystical about sex, I can't see that she can convince herself that she has accomplished that.Dispassionate discussion, in Sex, about the mechanics of "double and triple penetration" sounds like an exercise in engineering.Behind the scenes of the gang bang, all the naked men (some, actually, wear socks and shoes) standing around with, literally, their dicks in their hands, are laughable.And when Quek says that sex is worth dying for, that she doesn't care if she gets AIDS, it's hard to believe her: she looks plenty scared when she goes for an HIV test.Quek avers that having sex with 251 men in 10 hours is "no different than having sex with one guy for 10 hours."If she can't see the difference (though I suspect she can), then she might want to rethink her redefinition of female sexuality.
