I eliminated some space between lines in order to make it easier to read, but the Blitz is as originally sent, complete with a misspelling of "jewel."

Later, when I first later caught sight of the following subject line I thought that whatever spam filter Blitzmail employs had finally failed me. Then I realized it came from the Center for Women and Gender.

Subject: Orgasm Inc. (second) Sneak Film Screening

Since Loew Auditorium was not able to hold the masses. . .

Orgasm Inc.: The Strange Science of Female Desire

Sneak Film Screening

TOMORROW (wed may 13th), 4pm
The Center for Women & Gender (6 choate road)
Free and open to all.

Orgasm, Inc. is a humorous and informative odyssey that explores the mixed messages, corporate greed and outright quackery that women confront in their quest for sexual pleasure. This film had its international debut in the last few days at a Toronto Film Festival where audiences have been motivated to speak out on issues of women's health.

In case you're wondering, yes, the signature does appear to be a text representation of a woman's genitals like those Vagina Monologues t-shirts they were handing out during the winter quarter.

The film description is as follows from The Fledgling Fund's website, linked above:

"With unique access and deft style of interviewing, filmmaker Liz Canner goes on an eight year odyssey following cadre of drug companies as they race to be the first to win FDA approval of their pill, cream, patch or nose spray. The promised result: orgasm and "normal" sexual function for women. Ultimately, the film concludes that the key to women's sexual satisfaction is to change not just our sex lives but also our society."
It has received grants from Chicken & Egg Pictures, a group that exists to "provide support for women filmmakers who are working to address the social justice, equity, and human rights issues of our time, locally, nationally, and globally."

The director/producer is Liz Canner.
