The 2012 attack on the United States embassy in Benghazi was originally thought to be a reaction to a ridiculously bad film called “Innocence of Muslims.” While the protests around this film turned out to be merely a smokescreen for the attack, there is no denying the fact that this film did cause outrage throughout the Middle East. Now there is something else for Muslim extremists to be outraged over. On August 5, the new pornographic film, “Women of The Middle East,” was released by Pornfidelity.
“Women of the Middle East” stars pornstars, Ryan Madison, Arabelle Raphael, Karmen Bella, Nadia Ali, and Nikki Nightly. The film was created and co-directed by Kelly Madison and is part social commentary and part porno. It features four scenes, each dealing with a different aspect of how women are treated within Muslim culture and each scene also features a different type of Muslim veil such as the hijab, niqab, khimar, and burqa.
According to Kelly Madison’s blog,
“This movie is a message of empowerment for women all over the world who have their sexual freedoms denied in the name of religion, politics or patriarchal traditions.”
The film starts off with the following text statement:
“For a Middle Eastern Woman, veiling is not just a way to suppress her from having sexual freedom. It is a symbol for all of the human rights violations against these women, such as rape and domestic violence. Take the veils off!”
But make no mistake even though there is some social commentary involved in this film, it is a full on porn movie. Madison makes it clear that this is not in any way a documentary on the plight of women in the Middle East. It is a porn movie meant to entertain with a little bit of social commentary. In an interview with Vice, she says:
“Not condemning the Muslim religion, but showing that it’s sexually suppressing for women not being able to show their bodies, being hidden. So we thought we’d hit on that taboo… with an undertone of social commentary.”
While this film isn’t intended to cause controversy, it is hard to imagine that it won’t. Muslim extremists are notorious for issuing threats on those who they believe insult their religious sensibilities. This film will almost certainly do just that.
This Examiner attempted to contact Kelly Madison about the film and ask her about those very concerns, but have not yet received answers to those questions. If those questions are answered, this article will be updated accordingly.
