Made statements, possibly figurative, in which he claims to have “raped” actress Mara Lorenzio for the production of El Topo (1970).
His quote in regard to the making of El Topo was, “When I wanted to do the rape scene, I explained to [Mara Lorenzio] that I was going to hit her and rape her. There was no emotional relationship between us, because I had put a clause in all the women’s contracts stating that they would not make love with the director. We had never talked to each other. I knew nothing about her. We went to the desert with two other people: the photographer and a technician. No one else. I said, ‘I’m not going to rehearse. There will be only one take because it will be impossible to repeat. Roll the cameras only when I signal you to.’ Then I told her, ‘Pain does not hurt. Hit me.’ And she hit me. I said, ‘Harder.’ And she started to hit me very hard, hard enough to break a rib…I ached for a week. After she had hit me long enough and hard enough to tire her, I said, ‘Now it’s my turn. Roll the cameras.’ And I really…I really…I really raped her. And she screamed … Then she told me that she had been raped before. You see, for me the character is frigid until El Topo rapes her. And she has an orgasm. That’s why I show a stone phallus in that scene … which spouts water. She has an orgasm. She accepts the male sex. And that’s what happened to Mara in reality. She really had that problem. Fantastic scene. A very, very strong scene.”
In the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune (2013), Jodorowsky states:
“It’s different. It was my Dune. When you make a picture, you must not respect the novel. It’s like you get married, no? You go with the wife, white, the woman is white. You take the woman, if you respect the woman, you will never have child. You need to open the costume and to… to rape the bride. And then you will have your picture. I was raping Frank Herbert, raping, like this! But with love, with love.”

95. Vince McMahon
Producer | WWE Monday Night RAW
Vince McMahon, Chairman of the Board & Chief Executive Officer of WWE, Inc. (WWE), is a third-generation promoter who has made WWE into the global phenomenon it is today.
As a pioneer in the television syndication business, a recognized television personality throughout the world, a visionary …
In 1992, former WWF-WWE employee Rita Chatterton accused McMahon of rape on July 16, 1986. McMahon was accused of sexual harassment by a tanning bar employee in Boca Raton, Florida on February 1, 2006. No charges were filed in the case of either accusation.
Additionally, McMahon has been accused of being involved in numerous infamous events, acts and cover-ups throughout his career including allegedly ignoring/suppressing the murder allegations against Jimmy Snuka, allowing bullying by certain wrestlers (particularly Bob Howard & John Layfield) and the sexual harassment claims made against several people including his close confidant Pat Patterson.
This also includes the allegations that he supplied wrestlers with steroids and facilitated brain damage injuries via unsafe matches, both of which he was legally deemed not guilty or responsible for. However, these allegations were highlighted by Darren Drozdov‘s paralysis and the deaths of Owen Hart and Chris Benoit.
He’s also accused by many wrestlers of being heartless, vindictive and uncaring. Wrestlers cite his selective firings, the role of favoritism in his decision-making process, attempts at sabotaging careers and deferring to the whims of backstage cliques who have favor with him as evidence. His decision to continue a wrestling show after Owen Hart fell to his death following a poorly-coordinated stunt at a WWF-WWE event was highly criticized as insensitive to Hart, his family (many of whom have worked for McMahon) and the fans who witnessed the tragic death.
McMahon was chiefly involved in the creative changes to the WWF-WWE in the 1990s that shifted the company away from a family-friendly image toward a more violent, foul-mouthed and smutty style. This creative shift included a strong focus on the sexuality and nudity of female wrestlers with story angles being characterized by some as sexist, racist and homophobic. These changes ended in 2002 and the company employed a safer image following the death of Chris Benoit and his wife Linda McMahon‘s U.S. Senate runs.
