Green Porno was a series of educational short films created by and starring Isabella Rossellini, released on Sundance Channel from 2008 to date. In the eight original films that comprise the first season, Rossellini enacts the mating rituals of various insects with cardboard cut-outs and foam-rubber sculptures... most of the time both quite graphically and accurately. A good deal of its comic value comes from Rossellini's great ability to mimic different insects (dragonfly, spider, bee, praying mantis, worm, snail, fly), the cardboard settings as well as her [[CloudCuckooLander playful]] yet [[FetishFuel oddly sensual]] physical approach to the subject.

Added DiffLines:

In 2013, a third series called "Mamas" launched that featured short films focusing on the motherhood of various animals.


* NaughtyTentacles: Justified, since is a nature (???) TV show.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: While most people generally have no issues regarding kids watching some documentary about giraffes mating in the Serengeti, watching a grown up actress enacting sexual intercourse with a cardboard homefly, grinning maniacally while dressed in spandex with weird appendages... well, you get the point.


* PunctuatedForEmphasis: The male mantis, while being eaten: "She would eat my head... But I keep copulating. Nothing stops me! ''I keep going!!!'' [humping beheaded] SEXXXX!!!"



* ThisIsSparta: The male mantis, while being eaten: "She would eat my head... But I keep copulating. Nothing stops me! ''I keep going!!!'' [humping beheaded] SEXXXX!!!"

Ok, Green Porno. Where do we start?

Green Porno was a series of educational short films created by and starred by Isabella Rossellini, released in Sundance Channel from 2008 to date. In the eight original films that comprise the first season, Rossellini enacts the mating rituals of various insects with cardboard cut-outs and foam-rubber sculptures... most of the time both quite graphically and accurately.

The following series are actually called ''Seduce Me'', but the concept remains [[SpiritualSuccessor the same]], and most people still call it Green Porno. Over the course of Green Porno's three seasons, the focus of the show has shifted. Season one dealt exclusively with insects that people can realistically encounter on a daily basis. The second season focused on sea creatures but also included an episode on the sexual organs. For the third and smallest season, Green Porno adopted an overt environmental theme, specifically one which focused on the concept of over fishing contrasted with the mating habits of animals commonly used as food. In season three, Rossellini is joined by [[ShownTheirWork biologist]] Claudio Campagna.

It doesn't gets less disturbing.

Note that despite the name, there is nothing pornographic about the work. Unless you're a bug.

!! This movie contains examples of:

* DeathBySex: A common fate for male bees.
* DownerEnding: The male mantis fate, for reasons widely known. The female bedbug, for not so widely known reasons.
* GenderFlip: A lot of times Isabella plays the male part. Or both the female and male half of it, with hermaphrodite creatures (earthworms, snails).
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Probably more like rubbing said crap over radar's face.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Bedbug females have no sexual organs. They are "stabbed" by males and receive their sperm directly in their blood torrent and guts. So do snails with each other, being hermaphrodites.
* LargeHam: Isabella indulges in this quite frequently, overacting and not taking things too serious being the whole point.
* MindScrew: Over and over again.
* NaughtyTentacles: Justified, since is a nature (???) TV show.
* RefugeInAudacity: The other whole premise of the show.
* SensualSpandex: YMMV over the sensual, but Isabella's costumes are made of this material. Sometimes with painted nipples over it... [[MindScrew for some reason]].
* ThisIsSparta: The male mantis, while being eaten: "She would eat my head... But I keep copulating. Nothing stops me! ''I keep going!!!'' [humping beheaded] SEXXXX!!!"
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: While most people generally have no issues regarding kids watching some documentary about giraffes mating in the Serengeti, watching a grown up actress enacting sexual intercourse with a cardboard homefly, grinning maniacally while dressed in spandex with weird appendages... well, you get the point.
