I really was in awe of the very first penis I saw!
— Paula, “Getting Over Jeff.”
“First Penis I Saw” is a musical number performed by Paula Proctor. In this song Paula reminisces about her first love Jeff. This song premiered during the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Vulturefest event on November 20, 2017. It was featured in the Season Three episode "Getting Over Jeff.”
“First Penis I Saw” is an homage to the music group ABBA; Additionally the performance takes a number of visual cues from the official music video of “Mamma Mia” as well as the scene from the movie adaption of the musical “Mamma Mia” which used ABBA’s music.
I was thinking about love. It’s Paula’s high-school love. The most emotional thing I think of about love is … the first penis I saw. [Laughs.] I get emotional about that. In my case, the first penis I saw was my high-school boyfriend who ended up being gay and is now my best friend. That experience really bonded us. It was the first penis I saw and the first vagina he saw and will ever see. Sex is often very jokey, but sex is very emotional. Those moments are so, so important. One of us was like, “What if it’s an ABBA song?” Jack and I immediately started harmonizing to “Mamma Mia!” And then the ideas started pouring out.
