KEEPER OF THE FLAME: Jessica Juggz (both photos courtesy Jessica Juggz)
For those who are unfamiliar, the exotic stunt involves Ms. Juggz inserting a container of butane or lighter fluid into her nether regions and shooting-forth a gigantic, arching flame. Anyone who has seen the trick is dazzled. Tell a new person about it and you can see the wheels turning in their heads, doing the math and puzzling over the mental image.
Sadly, after a few close calls of what she describes as nearly âblowing up my pussy,â Juggz has announced that she is putting out the fire forever.
But all is not lost. Sheâs pulling out the trick one last time at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night at The Earl ($7) for the release party for Mourdellaâs debut recording, This Kill Is Mine on the Stickfigure Records splinter label, called Vagina FlambÃ©.
How did you learn this trick?
In 2000, I ran away with the circus with a bunch of kids who were stuck in Atlanta and were working at Eats and Tortillas. They were in the circus and asked me if I wanted to come on tour with them.
In Minneapolis this woman named Gwynnevere taught me and a few other girls how to do it. Her entire body was covered in tattoos, even her ears, but she was too shy to perform it. She just said 'you guys should do this.' And she put a container of lighter fluid in her pussy and it was the coolest and most offensive thing I had ever seen.
So we all took turns doing it in the circusâ¦ It was called The End of the World Circus and The Know Nothing Family Side Show Freak Show. They were based out of New Orleans and New York.
How does the trick work?
Well, itâs basically just me putting a container of fuel in my pussy. I MacGyver this little rig with the bottle cap and a rubber band to control the nozzle. I prefer using butane. The reason Iâm stopping is because I have almost blown up my pussy a few times. Young girls keep coming up to me and asking me how to do it. I donât want them to hurt themselves and I donât want to get sued for something that stupidâ¦
Showing some girl how to do something that could potentially cripple her or make it so she can never have kids isn't cool. If I do it, thatâs one thing. But I donât want to find out that someone else blew up their pussy because I showed them how. I donât want to risk it anymore either. Iâm turning 30 this year, and my boyfriend is a little afraid every time I do it.
How did it malfunction and almost blow you up?
There was a hole in the container and butane was leaking inside of me. It felt like I was getting stabbed with an icicle.
I knew something was wrong so I threw the container across the room and the can exploded. It was at Lennyâs. I said I was never going to do it again, but I said [it] to only two people. So I figure that I have to advertise that this really is the last time, so people wonât keep asking me to do it.
You are adamant about calling the trick Pussy FlambÃ©, not Vagina FlambÃ©, but the label thatâs putting out your CD is called Vagina FlambÃ©. Whatâs the connection?
I wanted Stickfigure [Records] to put it out. [Gavin Frederick] wanted to start a new label that released only local bands. I wanted him to call the label Pussy FlambÃ©, but he said Vagina FlambÃ© would be less offensive.
