I have often wondered about something during sex scenes in movies. When movie and TV people have sex and reach climax, they usually just roll over and are done with it. Just like that, finished, like nothing ever took place. There is no visiting the bathroom. There are no washcloths, the sipping of water, the changing of sheets, drippy stuff, sweat. These people don’t even get up to use the bathroom at all. The ladies don’t even pee. (Yeast infections, ladies! Yeast infections!)
Am I missing something? Even during x-rated episodes of Queer as Folk where the gay men finish up their business, they merely roll over and go to sleep or put their pants on and leave the house.
When people die or come close to dying I am told that they usually piss themselves. I remember being extremely impressed with the scene in Grand Canyon when Steve Martin’s character is hit by a bullet. When he falls to the ground his pants are covered in his own urine.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see art imitate the real deal, sloppy or not, let that stuff shine. It’s beautiful. (No pun intended.)
Edited to Add: Judging by the email/AIM messages I have received, I am thinking this post was totally misinterpreted. Damn you, people. Damn you all.
Edited to Add: Wow, I do sound prudish. This just goes to show how ones intentions were SO not met via the words. Clearly, I’m spending too much time listening to talk radio and not enough time communicating. I am not a prude nor do I have jock itch.
Charlie, I will cut you.
