Bodil Joensen or Bodil Jørgensen (25 September 1944 – 3 January 1985) was a Danish pornographic actress born in the village Hundige, near Copenhagen. An animal lover, she ran a small entrepreneurial farm and animal husbandry business, and enjoyed celebrity status from her many pornographic films in which she engaged in sex acts with animals.
Early life :
From the documentary "The Dark Side of Porn: Animal Farm"The daughter of a devout Christian mother and an absentee military father, Bodil grew up in the small village of Hundige near Copenhagen. Her mother was often physically abusive, sometimes violently so, and would whip her. At the age of 12, her Danish biography and 1980s interview say that she met a older man and that she was "nearly raped", but her mother believed she had been actually raped. On returning home to tell her mother, she was beaten and blamed for the incident. Seeking a means to retaliate, she vowed to her mother that when she grew up she would spend her life with boars, commenting in an interview that her mother was "so shocked, she thought I was allied to the Devil". Turning to animals for affection, her dog Lassie became her best friend, companion and lover, and she wore a locket with his picture for the rest of her life.
Pornography career :
Launched in the context of a failing business and attempts to remain solvent in order to keep her livestock and home, her career in pornography began at age 17 when she appeared in "light fetish" pornography before establishing herself in the bestiality subgenre at around age 25. She starred in a number of feature films and shorts for companies such as Color Climax Corporation, and for the pornographer Ole Ege, in which she and other actors had sex with various animal species. Between 1969 and 1972 she starred with animals in over 40 movies.
In this genre, Bodil drew special attention worldwide as the Boar Girl, a reputation earned from her live sex performances with pigs, as well as her participation in films shot with pigs on her own breeding centre.
The documentary A Summer Day (1970) by Shinkichi Tajiri, shows her living with her animals on her farm during this era, including their care, her affection for them, and her sexual life. At the time, she lived with "two rabbits, seven dogs, a dozen pigs, some cats, a guinea pig, a mare and a beautiful black stallion named Dreamlight." Her Danish biographer commented that she seemed a very open, warm-hearted person, "very at home with nature," and that "when she plays her erotic game with the dog or horse, it is not only a sexual curiosity, it is an erotic play with animals she loves and who are devoted to her." It was the surprising winner of the Grand Prize for the X rated film festival at which it premiered, winning Joensen immediate underground celebrity status and drawing attention from other documentary makers as well as tourists towards her expanding farm. She became, for a short time, a social and political icon of free love and unity with nature among the left.
Later life and death :
By the early 70s she had managed to achieve her goal of living on her own farm, along with her companion Knud Andersen and her daughter (born circa 1972), which she helped finance by allowing sex tourists to visit and make private films with her animals.
Bodil was easily exploited by almost anyone with a camera. Neighbours, once friendly, turned dark and hostile,and forced her to move repeatedly. As the Danish adult industry began looking to other content, Bodil failed to make the transition from animal porn to other movies, and her financial stability and life began to fall apart.Her last known Animal Video,titled "French Hot Dog 2"also included sceanes with another female that included golden & brown showers.By the late 70's, she experienced a sharp deterioration, undergoing very obvious physical and psychological changes, including depression, working in seedy "live animal sex shows" and "sexual roleplay". By 1980, with little remaining means of income and spiralling debt, drinking and eating excessively. she gained 30 kilos.
Her life falling apart, she became dependent on alcohol, and progressively less able to care for her animals. With little left, she turned to street prostitution to support herself, her partner (an alcoholic himself) and daughter, even then, she did not want to be with people this way – all she wanted was her animals, as it once had been. Resorting to exchanging any sexual favour for alcohol and tranquillisers, she stated in her final interview that "in my position it is hard to turn down anything, no matter how sick & disgusting it was."
She gave her last interview in 1980 and died in 1985. Many believed her to have committed suicide, however in the April 2006 UK documentary, "The Dark Side of Porn: The Search For Animal Farm," which traced the production of the notorious underground film known as Animal Farm from excerpts of her many bestiality films, it was stated by a close friend of Bodil's that she died on 3 January 1985 from cirrhosis of the liver.
