    Girls Gone Wild Girls Gone Wild Presentation Transcript

    • Girls Gone Wild By: Tri Khuu Joe R. Francis
    • Introduction
      • The primary behavior that can be observed on a Girls Gone Wild videos would be college-aged women exposing their breasts.
      • However other sexual activities can be observed also.
      • Participators do not get rewarded with money but with a white cotton t-shirt.
    • Historical Background
      • In the US breasts are sexualized.
      • The beauty, admiration and obsession with breasts has always existed and continues until today.
      • The bigger the better!
      • The perkier the better!
      • The rounder the better!
      • Men are just in love breasts and women are eager to show off what they have.
    • Gender and Inequality
      • The college-aged population engages the most in this behavior.
        • They can be as young 18 years old.
        • They are white women
        • Heterosexuals
        • Middle-class
      • Any good-looking females who are willing to show their breasts can participate.
      • GGW content lacks racial and ethnic diversity among the females.
      • Judging from these covers, one can see this.
      • There’s a Guys Gone Wild too.
      • The ideal participator would be:
        • Blonde hair
        • Blue eyes
        • Big breasts
        • No piercing or tattoos
        • Weighing from 100 to 110 pounds
      • This is the ideal of white American beauty
      • Girls Gone Wild definitely benefits the male population more than it does the female population.
      • Men benefited the most from this behavior because they get to see breasts, the women in the video get a tank top.
      • Some women see this behavior as degrading.
    • Legality
      • Many lawsuits have been brought against Joe Francis, the founder of Girls Gone Wild, with claims that some of the girls are underage and were filmed without proper consent.
      • The girls appearing on the video are usually drunk and not in a state to be able to give their informed consent.
    • Religious Influences
      • Religion has not directly played a role in this issue, however we live in a Judeo-Christian society and those values manifest in many ways.
      • This society does not approve of overt sexuality.
      • These values which are embedded in our society make young women feel that they can only “go wild” when they are drunk.
    • Political Influences
      • After the prostitution scandal with New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, GGW wanted to offer call girl Ashley Dupre $1 million to star in an upcoming film.
    • Political Influences
      • But the surprise was on them!
      • She had already appeared in a Girls Gone Wild video – when she was only seventeen.
    • Changes?
      • Feminists would like to see reform on this issue.
      • Mantra films would like it to stay the same so that they can keep profiting.
    • Changes
      • Recently, Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis spent nearly 12 months in jail.
      • Pannama City, Fl charged him with 71 criminal charges.
      • Joe Francis was never convicted of any charges.
      • He claims that he was wrongfully there, and many of his constitutional rights were violated such as Amendment 4, 5, 7 and 8.
      • Joe has no ambition on changing anything.
    • The Future
      • I think that Girls Gone Wild will continue on and still be profitable.
      • After all, the activity of showing one’s breasts has been enjoyed since the 1700s, so why would that stop now?
    • The Future
      • I would hope that Mantra Films would be more careful in selecting the women for their videos.
      • Using drunk, underage girls sets them up for many legal problems.
