The erotic film “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge” – which prides itself on being the most expensive adult film produced to date – is expected to blow students’ minds tonight with loads of seamen and adventure.
Provided to the campus by fans of the UCSB Club Rugby Team, the stimulating film will be screened tonight at 7 in I.V. Theater for $5 per person. According to Fabian Munoz, a third-year business economics major, the event started out as a joke.
“When we first thought about [showing a porn], we thought, ‘Dude, no one will go see “Pirates II” because some creepy motherfucker will be jacking off in the theater,” Munoz said. “But once we started asking around, people said, ‘Hell yeah, we’d go! We’ll make a night of it!'”
Co-organizer Ryan O’Leary, a second-year biology major, said the film offered an original way to attract funding for the team.
“I’ve seen that actor in some other feature films,” O’Leary said. “We were just sitting around and one of the kids on our team really enjoys adult entertainment, so we decided on ‘Pirates II.'”
Digital Playground – which owns the property rights for the film – gave the organizers a free extended version of the movie with additional sex scenes for tonight’s show, O’Leary said.
O’Leary said the event is something the team hopes will excite the masses.
“I’m bringing my own blanket to the showing,” O’Leary said. “So I think that speaks for itself.”
With 15 AVN Awards in its fists, this film – starring Jesse Jane and Shay Jordan – features copious amounts of sex and adventure as the stars search for a stolen pearl.
The light-hearted story line has turned on many students to the fundraiser, including Ian Johansen, a first-year English and philosophy major.
“I heard the storyline is great,” Johansen said. “I can’t wait to see the climax.”
Meanwhile, SexInfo – a UCSB club that runs a comprehensive human sexuality Web site – will be handing out free condoms after the showing.
