Two Girls One Cup: A Phenomenology of Male Humor and Fetishism

by LadyMadonna Saturday, Jan. 19, 2008 at 6:53 PM

40 years after second-wave feminism, the internet runs rampant with backwards media portraying women as objects. The "two girls one cup" phenomenon is evidence of the static position of women as second-class citizens.

Two Girls One Cup: A...
hottentot.jpg, image/jpeg, 362x600

I first heard about this website, “two girls, one cup” from my partner’s roommate. He tried to show us the website, but we both put up a big enough fight that he finally retreated to describing it instead. He explained that the website depicted “two girls shitting and throwing up into a cup and then eating it” and then expressed how “crazy” and “gross” it was. His simultaneous fascination and fetishization was reminiscent of the similar motivating factors for Westerners to view the Hottentot Venus (or Sarah Baartman) and circus freak shows. After learning of the website, I began hearing it discussed by males everywhere. First I was walking on campus and I heard a guy saying it right as I walked by. As I walked away I wondered if he was talking to me or to the guy next to him. Then I went to my friend’s birthday party and among the chatter of her partner’s friends, “Two Girls One Cup” was mentioned.


I finally realized that I needed to see this video that it seemed like every guy has seen. I was not surprised that it was essentially a fetish porn video. The women were depicted as hypersexual, and appeared to be enjoying defecation, vomit, and each other in a titallatingly gross and sexual way. They were obviously performing for an audience of men with a “Jackass” mentality, the grosser and more dangerous, the better. In order for women to be as sensational as the guys who will “poo dive” and the women who participate in pornography, they have to sex it up, mixing men’s ideal, pornified women with their fascination with bodily functions. The scope of the “two girls” phenomenon is huge, and the message it sends is one where women are once again being viewed as objects to be watched like animals at a zoo, and degraded to poo-eating lesbians for men’s visual pleasure and excitement.
