Adding a notch to the Brazilian musical scene steam MTV Brazil has been exhibiting a
video-clip glorifying oral sex. President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky are some of the
characters portrayed in the 4m14s film made to divulge "Boquete" (Giving Head),
a song from Carioca (from Rio) Ivo Meirelles and his Funk’n’Lata band.
By the way, if it weren’t for Clinton, the song would probably still be in Meirelles’s
drawer gathering dust. The song was made two years ago, but the composer didn’t think the
song would get any airtime due to its risqué lyrics. Then the White House scandal broke
out and oral sex became a subject discussed even in kindergartens.
It’s not the Clinton-Lewinsky duet, though, that’s getting most of the attention,
provoking controversy and enraging the Catholic Church. In the clip there is a
priestMeirelles himselfwho is all smiles and is shown with a very pretty
little devil working under his frock while the lyrics explain what’s going on:
Padre encontra o lenitivo
E a felicidade se repete
Todo dia num boquete
Priest finds lenitive
And happiness repeats itself
Everyday in a cocksucking
In another scene, Meirelles gives oral relief to a plastic doll in a Volkswagen bug.
"This veiled censorship I’ve been facing is a portrait of Brazil’s hypocrisy,"
says the musician. "False morality has to go. The whole world performs oral sex, but
you cannot talk about it. I’ve known priests who were gays, others who were
perverts," he adds.
Prá quem tem inglês fluente
Boquete! Boquete! Boquete! Boquete!
For those who have fluent English
Head! Head! Head! Head!
