During a ten-hour period in January, 1995, porn actress Annabel Chong (1972- ) had sex with 251 men in front of cameras. The resulting video sold more than 40,000 copies (she was never paid the agreed-upon $10,000). This documentary tells the story of that day and connects it to Chong’s life as a student at USC and as the daughter of a middle-class Chinese couple in Singapore. Annabel talks to the camera about her decisions; the camera also follows her to an AIDS test after the world-record-setting sex fest and home to Singapore, where she visits her parents who do not know about her profession and friends and professors who do. Should she tell her mother?

This is a horrific film, made all the worse because it’s all true. Annabel Chong is an intelligent, articulate middle class student from Singapore, where her parents are so proud that she’s managed to get to America. Unfortunately, what she does in America is make porn films – films like “What’s a nice girl like you doing in an anal movie?”. This film is structured around her record breaking attempt to have sex with 251 men. And it is exceptionally grim. En Route, we meet the characters who work in the porn industry, see Annabel’s friends and realise that she is very, very screwed up. This is a snapshot of humanity at its lowest. After watching it, all your liberal assumptions are challenged. A grim but essential film.
