Incredible Vaginal Imagery

Forget for a minute that Helen Parr (aka the wife, mother, and superhero Elasta Girl of the Oscar winning hit Disney and Pixar film The Incredibles) may well be the most sexually appealing animated female character ever. (Keep in mind the film continually reminds us of how "flexible" she can be, and shows us how she can spread her legs wider than other woman.) Add The Incredibles to the list of films (including Poltergeist, Alien, and Videodrome) that uses vaginal imagery. I have seen The Incredibles a number of times. But, this past weekend, watching it again on DVD with my children, the image just jumped out at me. During the scene in which Mr. Incredible is being taken to the secret headquarters of his arch enemy Syndrome, a waterfall "opens up" in the shape of a vagina to "let them in." I admired that this imagery is so subtle it took me repeated viewings to notice. But it's there.

Freud said "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."
Get your head out of the gutter, MOMM. ("Oh, but look how shapely, wet and inviting that gutter is...")

How about a Focus on Boobs?
