“Lewd!”- A ‘penetrating’ look at the Jamaican Dancehall Culture

“Lewd!” is a short film is by a friend and great Jamaican producer and director, Wayne Benjamin and offers a rare inside perspective on the motivation behind the current Dancehall Culture in Jamaica.

It’s very easy to come to negative judgements about the sexual climate in Jamaican Dancehall after seeing the scantily clad women gyrating and grinding, exposing their privates to the video cameras and the men in their animalistic lustful endorsement of this behaviour.

However, I have always been a strong advocate of open-mindedness and considerations of multiple perspectives and this film lends a seldom offered ear to the rationale of the persons involved in this practice.

Give a look and share your thoughts.

    • Thnx for the comment Real Ting. I agree with you. But let me play Devil’s Advocate. Do you think that perhaps it gets taken a bit too far sometimes? And how do you feel about the view that it is demeaning to women?
