Pathos And Porn — Doris Wishman’s “Let Me Die A Woman”

Let Me Die A Woman, 1977

Let’s not kid ourselves, Doris Wishman’s Let Me Die A Woman is porn. But it’s porn with a shocking amount of earnestness and poignancy worth examining.

“What you are about to see is a true sex act performed by a man and another man who emotionally thinks and acts like a woman… the penis and testicles are clearly shown.
Narrator
