Sook-Yin Lee demands party guests share an orgasm story
“Who is going to share a story of their first orgasm?” belted director Sook-Yin Lee from a mic at the back of Rolly’s Garage on Oz. Silence. The crowd gathered to celebrate The Year of the Carnivore had a drunken gaze and nervous laughter, so Lee broke the ice “I had my first orgasm on a bunk bed post.” Still, no one was willing to share. She grew impatient, “You! YOU COME UP! YOU!! YOU WITH THE CAMERA TRYING TO HIDE BEHIND IT!!” (Er, that would be us.) Just when we thought we’d get kicked out for not divulging our most private acts to a room packed with strangers, a man ran to the rescue. Unfortunately, it was also last call so his tale of having an orgasm with a British accent was muffled by drunk people rushing to the bar.
Later, we asked Lee what it means to be a woman. “I just bought my first purse in China,” she replied. “I always thought purses were weird.” We dug deeper and asked about her sexuality, and she told us of a time when she felt really free: “I cranked up Air (the band), danced alone and made out with a wall. The wall was very loving.” While we did not attempt to make love to the cement walls of the auto-body shop, we did leave with a sexual detective kit that includes a neon pink vibrator key chain, lube and a blue condom.
