Sex in the Movies

 

Sex in the Movies

Brits may call it shagging and in the States it’s screwing,
but both these terms only describe the action that they’re doing.
Increasingly, both movies and TV  seem dedicated

to insuring that their viewers are sexually educated.

I admit I’m stymied at the surreal acts depicted.
Somehow the warmness of the act seems to have been evicted.
Loving touch seems relegated to a foreign place
and athleticism substituted in its place.

My aunt once said she didn’t know what bedroom scenes were for.
We’d know what they were doing if they just shut the door.
I quipped, “Not exactly,” and she shot back, “Well, I would,”

and with that, stopped discussion, sealing it well and good.

Ending in an impasse, we left it where it stood.
I would have issued no rejoinder, even if I could.
It was a family joke for years but now I have been caught.
I finally must admit that I’ve joined her in the thought.

 

Prompt words today are stymie, warm, screw, surreal and shag.

    Haha, brilliant. Totally agree, so much is shown now unnecessarily. I think the same of horror movies, much better when you don’t see the blood and gore but imagine the horror instead, like the ending of Alfred Hitchcocks birds. KL ❤️

    I think it’s because men are directly these pictures. Women are more turned on by sex when it’s part of a relationship, but men just like the action. They really do have a different mechanism and it’s amazing we manage to get along as a single species 😀
