Well hello! Here we are again with another scintillating discussion of sex in film!

…or is it?

The thing about Romantic Comedies is that the genre, overall, is inextricably linked to the concept of sex in film, while often shying away from dealing with it almost completely! It hints at it, references it, toys with it… but, often as not, tries to pussyfoot around it in the name of love and romance… as if sex is to unseemly to include. Or to ridiculous to do anything but laugh at.

So, this time around we take a closer look… at what we like about Rom Coms, what we dislike about them, and about what we think might be just the thing for infusing them with a bit of our pet subject (…sex. It’s sex. In case you were still wondering.) without losing what makes them (sometimes) charming to begin with.

Sex in Film 2015…

Let’s start out with some basic honesty… this episode was recorded by two young ladies who had just split an entire bottle of wine. This fact may, or may not, become apparent to you, our listeners, most likely depending on how well you already know us. Aside from that, the episode title is pretty self-explanatory. Mainstream cinema hasn’t had a lot to offer connoisseurs of sex scenes in the more recent history. We’re excited about the prospect the success of these two films might offer in the way of a renewed interest in sex in film. We’re much less excited about these two particular films in-and-of themselves. But that distinction is what this episode is basically all about, so let’s just go ahead and get down to it…
