Sex - Since We Were on the Topic

In a continuing effort to get the word 'sex' into as many posting titles as possible I would like to continue to discuss the issue. In yesterday's post I alluded to the fact that some people expressed reservations about the These Girls script due to the subject matter. One issue in particular was the concept of young girls having sex (and even more to the point - their first sexual experience) with an older man. Although I never took any kind of official straw poll on the subject I am not surprised by how many women I have spoken to that admitted to having been with an older man early on in their sexual lives. As surely as the comedic setup of These Girls is an artistic exaggeration it is, without a doubt, founded on a kernel of real life truth.

you want to make me *faint* with this photo or what .. lmao

yeah , when it was announced that DB was about to make a movie with 'teenage' girls , can I just say all hell broke lose on the boards, some were kind of excited about it (don't need to draw le dessin about it hé) others were shocked he was going to play a 'pedofile' , Sex will always be a taboe .. eventho we all enjoy it largly .. Sex sells good, you only have to watch adds , publicity, you can see it .. movies are still looked at with a devious eye , not sure how to catalogue them .. I can only say it will be accepted warmly in Europe as we are less 'pudique'

I just read a great review by Dave Jaffer in Hour. ca Film on 'These Girls.' I'm so sad that this isn't going to be in major theatres in the US. I may have to take a trip to Canada. It was nice to see Boreanaz and the rest of the cast get praised for their work in the film.

Unfortunately, US is run by some self professed puritans (read hypocrites) that get to make more and more of our decisions for us. Some of these decisions mean that it's more wholesome to watch blood and gore (and wage real wars) than watch (or enjoy) sex. Just look at what happends to our presidents who chose one over another. It's a concerted effort tu make people forget the sixties "Make Love not War" shout.
Of course, propaganda aside, it's not what people really want, so if this movie would just make its way into theatres...At least in "sin cities" such as New York - before our new Emirate owners make us don burkas....
