Annabel Chong (born May 22, 1972) is the pornographic stage name of Grace Quek. Chong is a web designer and former pornographic actress now living in the United States who became famous for having sex on camera with approximately 80 men in ten hours (the claim was that it was 251 men), with the resulting footage being packaged as The World's Biggest Gang Bang. She is also the subject of the hit documentary movie Sex: The Annabel Chong Story.
Quek was born in China but grew up in Singapore, then studied law in London. She continued with her studies at the age of 21 and moved to the United States shortly after she was gang raped in a London subway. (She got off at the wrong station and met a black man and with whom she left to a deserted place where they had consensual sex. After she had sex with another male she was gang raped.) While she was studying photography, art and feminist studies at the University of Southern California (USC), where she excelled academically, she was also working as a porn star. She went on to do her graduate work in gender studies at USC, and currently works as a successful web designer. She is also an artist who has exhibited at a group show in New York City.
Her work in pornography attempted to challenge the settled notions and assumptions of viewers about female sexuality. Because she did this, she was not a very popular performer among reviewers seeking titillation.
For example, her conception of a gangbang was based on the example of Messalina, a wife of the emperor Claudius. Messalina is not held in high regard by Roman historians, largely because of gender bias (although Messalina had other character defects as well.) Chong questioned the double standard that denies, and has historically denied women the ability to exhibit the same sexuality as men, by modelling what a female "stud" would be.
For her performance, Chong earned a "dubious achievement award" in Esquire magazine.
Quek answered an advertisement in LA Weekly which led to photo shoots and then an interview with director John T. Bone . Bone, recognizing Quek's penchant for extreme sex acts, embarked on producing a series of films starring her. In I Can't Believe I Did the Whole Team and Anal Queen , she demonstrated an incredible resilience for anal intercourse with large groups of men. Indeed, Chong was known more for her pioneering triple penetration scenes (intercourse with three men at the same time with either two men's penises in her anus and one man's penis in her vagina, or vice versa).
The World's Biggest Gang Bang, staged in January 1995, was shot by Bone. Eighty or so participants turned up for the event held in a large studio in Hollywood. The studio, built to look like a Roman arena, had Chong lay on bed on a stage whilst the participants lined up below the stage. Groups of five men were let onto the stage at one time to engage Annabel in anal, oral and vaginal sex. Condoms were supplied, however, some participants escaped the net and regular performers were not required to wear any. After 250 sexual encounters with men, Chong decided to end on that number after excessive fingering had caused soreness in her vagina and anus. However, Ron Jeremy, the host, was persuaded by Annabel to be the last participant, number 251.
Annabel was never paid the USD $12,000 she was promised for the gangbang, which was supposed to cover her USC expenses. After the event, Annabel made a host of media appearances, including The Jerry Springer Show.
- I did this interview where I just mentioned that I read Foucault. Who doesn't in university, right? I was in this strip club giving this guy a lap dance and all he wanted to do was to discuss Foucault with me. Well, I can stand naked and do my little dance, or I can discuss Foucault, but not at the same time; too much information.
