Imagine getting kidnapped by sex-kitten lesbians and hot-ass butch dykes, and the Stockholm Syndrome starts to make a hell of a lot of sense. If the very idea gets your pot boiling and you’re wondering where to hang out with your most unassuming expression innocently pasted on your face in the hopes of meeting your own personal body snatcher and making this dream come true, check out these clips from Give Piece of Ass a Chance, the third mini-porn is a series produced by Toronto’s The Scandelles for a few tips and tricks on getting nabbed, grabbed and brainwashed by hotties. Renowned for their smart n’ sexy full-on theatrical productions that dig deep into sexual and social commentary, The Scandelles have teamed up with fag porn oh-my-God, Bruce LaBruce in this playful political satire that pokes and prods our cultural obsession with celebutant scandal while sexualizing anti-war and feminist activist groups and activities from the 1970s.

Give Piece of Ass a Chance is directed by LaBruce and features The Scandelles alter egos in a 1972 flashback plot in which a munitions heiress is kidnapped by a sex-terrorist gang who militantly fuck her with anti-war rhetoric and guns, claiming that the real terrorist is her weapons-producing father. The Munitions Heiress is slowly won over through brainwashing orgies, gun-sucking blowjobs and good old fashioned cuddling. She joins the group to live happily ever after in Toronto, where, 20 years later, her kidnappers are recognized by a student in a, ‘Women in Consequential but Careless Anti-War Groups’ class. Beautifully cut to a soundtrack of memorable oldies, Give Piece of Ass a Chance capitalizes on director LaBruce’s cult and queercore background whose work includes spectacular alternaporn classics like No Skin Off My Ass (1991), Super 8½ (1995) and Hustler White(1996). LaBruce’s most recent film, Otto; or Up with Dead People (2008) features a young zombie named Otto who embarks on a journey of self-discovery with an underground filmmaker who is trying to complete her epic political-porno-zombie movie that she has been working on for years. LaBruce brings this signature hard edge punk porn sensibility toGive Piece of Ass a Chance with an incredible eye for composition and a self-reflexive wink to his own politically charged filmmaking practice. The results are sexy, sassy and Scandelle-licious, making Give Piece of Ass a Chance the ultimate homage to a collective romanticized activist past complete with unrequited ransom demands, vague pleas for peace, and that free-love spirit that lands us all in the sac with girls, girls, grrls.
