Mayby you have heard of the movie "Teeth"?
It's a film about a young woman due to growing up next to a nuclear plant has sharp teeth in her... wombabaloobabbalambamboom. And when men enters her with their... dingdingdangadangalongdingdong, and she doesn't want them to, they fare badly. I'm sure I don't have to draw a diagram.

I didn't think this could possibly be a good movie, I just saw it out of curiousity and because it was free on Amazon Prime. But Surprise, it was actually pretty good. I think the viewers who expected Night of the Living Dead only with genitalia were disappointed, and gave the movie the bad reviews it often gets. But the producers were smart and realized that this movie could not make it in the horror movie market as it is today, meaning tonnes of blods, guts, and limbs flying in all directions.

So instead they made a good story out of it, and actually gave it quite some humor.
If you find yourself sometimes rooting for the beautiful gender in the sex wars, I think you'll like this one.

Jess Weixler is the innocent but not harmless heroine.

Ever read "Snow Crash" by Neil Stephenson (sp?)? There's a similar situation later in the book, though if I remember right she has some control over the device.

Oh yes, I knew something kept ringing in the back of my head. But nothing specific, it is decades since I read that book.

I found this movie on Netflix and watched it last night. Yike, that would hurt. Anyway, the best moment I think is at the end when the old may sticks out his tong as if to "suck on a lollipop with a hole in it" and she finally gets it and simply smiles that all knowing smile of this man's future.. :-)
