It’s been a while since Elizabeth Berkley has been in the spotlight, but according to the Internet she’s making quite a splash on Dancing With The Stars. Sure, it’s not quite the same splash as when she pretend-fucked Kyle MacLachlan in a pool so she could make it to the big stage in Vegas, but it was enough to remind me why I love her so much.
Berkley is famous for her role as teen-goody-two-shoes Jesse on Saved By The Bell, but the heart wrenching scene she delivered when her character was addicted to caffeine pills wasn’t enough to secure her place on the A-list. When the Zack Morris show ended, she decided to pull a Miley Cyrus (Miley is so good at the good-girl turned bad-girl thing she influenced fellow performers before she was even born) and accepted the role of stripper turned showgirl Nomi Malone.
She got a lot of flack for it. I mean, like a lot. People still make fun of the pool sex scene, because she kind of looks like a beached fin-less dolphin (figure it out). By most accounts, Showgirls was a critical and box office boo-fest.
Those accountants were all wrong, Showgirls was a brilliant movie and it was super hot. I was 14 years-old when I first watched it, and re-watched it and re-watched and re-watched it, and I was definitely turned on. All the scenes that everyone in popular media makes fun of: when she licks the pole, when she grinds on the guy when she has her period, when she fingers herself on stage, when she high kicks that dude and shows us her crotch, when she fucks like a dolphin… they were all pussy dripping hot.
At least, I thought so. More than being hot, though, and it was fucking hot (I dare anyone to watch it and not wank off afterwards), it was mostly fearless and kick ass. Sure, Nomi made some mistakes on her way to the top, but boy did she ever grab life by the balls on her way there.
We should all have the guts to fuck someone (to dance, to fight, to sing, to live) with such wild abandon. We shouldn’t make fun of the way Nomi fucks the guy from Twin Peaks in the pool, we should all aspire to such greatness, to such fierce desire, not only to get someone else off, but to get ourselves off.
