22 – Lorena Bobbitt
This month we tackle another non–murdering but much maligned woman from the 90s, Lorena Bobbitt, who cut her husband John Wayne Bobbitt’s penis off after he raped her. The case was an absolute media circus, vendors sold hot dogs and pants with pictures of knives on them outside the courthouse and John Wayne Bobbitt went on late night television to guess the punchline of jokes about the incident. We talk about the amazon documentary (stream it illegally!), John Wayne Bobbitt: Uncut, the porno, and men who think their wives are waiting with bated breath for dick–chopping to become legal. We also discuss whether one million dilfs is too many dilfs, adventures in accidental romance novel purchasing, whether human spit melts ice and what constitutes a sexy ghost. Our theme song is by Killjoys, our DIY band that we do with our pal Ashley! Our EP is coming out in the new year! CONTENT NOTES: coercive abortion, domestic violence and abuse, a lot of discussion of sexual assault and rape culture and shitty laws around rape.
