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.

And if Rom Coms are your jam, be sure to check out my friend Diana’s podcast, Happily Ever Aftermath, where she and her friend, Polina, discuss Rom Coms in much the same style as Laura and I discuss sex in film. Check them out on iTunes, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.


Well folks, a couple of episodes back, when we tackled the topic of friends with benefits, we mentioned that we wanted to do an episode on the Amy Schumer vehicle, Trainwreck, which at the time still had yet to be released.

Well… we love keeping promises. It came. We saw it. Here’s the episode.

However, if you came here expecting the same glowing response that the average critic has been lavishing on this film, well, prepare for a level of disappointment not unlike what we felt leaving the theater. Which is not to say we didn’t enjoy ourselves! Or find ourselves laughing! Also something you can ultimately parallel with this episode, I hope.

So have we whet your appetite? No?! Well, dammit, just play the episode and find out what the hell I’m talking about!

Also, if you’re wondering why we’re recording somewhere in the vicinity of festively frolicking reindeer, those tinkling sleigh bells you may end up hearing once and awhile in the background, are actually the bell-collars of three very naughty cats who will not take the party elsewhere.
