The Typical Barbie © Sex Scene
Scene: Barbie's house, preferably a bright pink Dream House, but can be a shoebox or other everyday object. As many Barbie objects (Barbie accessories, Barbie bed, Barbie car, Barbie sauna and pool) scattered around as much as possible. BARBIE is wearing something tight and short (what a surprise) and SKIP (or another Barbie friend of a similar size, such as She-Ra, Jem or a matchbox on a stick) are in the middle of the room.
There is very little walking around, and characters indicate they're talking by jumping up and down.
SKIP: You're so lucky, Barbie! A date with Ken. A boy will never like me...
BARBIE: Don't be silly, Skip. Of course you'll get a boyfriend- I saw Ken's friend looking at you the other day.
SKIP: I don't know... so will you sleep with Ken on your date tonight? *
BARBIE: We'll see, maybe. He is cute.(sits on bed)
SKIP: I'll get that... crosses to door Oh, hi Ken. Barbie's ready.
KEN: Hi Skip! Oh, Barbie, you look... beautiful.
SKIP: I'll just be in the kitchen. (crosses the room, exits)
BARBIE: You don't look so bad yourself.
KEN crosses the room to BARBIE. They quickly kiss each other, then start kissing with great passion
BARBIE:Oh, no, Ken, it's our first date! Slow down.
KEN: (panting) But you're so... sexy. I can't help it.
(They kiss again, and lie down on the bed. After a while they moan and grunt, thrusting against each other. Things get quite violent as the bed springs are tested via hard thumping and the sounds of sex increase. Suddenly things are quiet**)
BARBIE: Oh, Ken. That was great. You're good in bed.
KEN: You weren't so bad yourself.
BARBIE: You know, I'm worried about Skip. She thinks no boy will ever like her. Isn't that silly?
KEN: Very silly. I think she's cute... not sexy like you, though (nuzzles head into BARBIE'S shoulder)
(SKIP enters the room and cries out, shocked. KEN jumps out of bed.
KEN: Skip! Don't be embarrassed. Come and lay down with us.
BARBIE: Yes, Skip, come over here.
(Skip crosses and lays on the bed)
KEN: That's better. (Starts rubbing up against SKIP)
BARBIE: I'm just going to the kitchen***... (Crosses room and leaves)
(KEN and SKIP kiss, grunt and moan. They thump against the bed springs until all is quiet. ****BARBIE enters)
BARBIE: Ken, do you want to get something to eat?
KEN: Sure. See you later, Skip.
SKIP: Bye guys, have fun!
(BARBIE and KEN leave and SKIP remains on the bed)
Notice the smooth segue
between innocent boy-talk
. This indicates the participants' inexperience
in talking about such issues; to them, boys= sex. There's nothing to be ashamed of as sex isn't yet "dirty".
** The couple had sex without removing their clothes. This could be a further indication of sexual inexperience of the participants but is more likely to be related to the fact that Barbie clothes are quite difficult to remove and put back on quickly. Hence, it's just easier for them to "do it" wearing clothes.
*** Both the girls left the room for the "kitchen". This is an indication of the majority of Barbie merchandise available in the 80s, as the most common accessories were the Barbie house, or a Barbie bed and kitchen combination. Early Barbie mentality- a girl should be in bed or in the kitchen.
**** A lack of a variety of male counterparts to the female Barbie meant that Ken got lucky a lot. Occassionally another kind of Barbie was used in his place, if there was a double date scene, and these Barbies didn't always portray a male: girl Barbies got with other girl Barbies. Strangely they had sex in the same thumping, mashing manner as heterosexual sex.
