The Joylessness of TV Sex
new piece posted at NYT that reviews trends in TV lovemaking--all bad, in this account, from Carrie and Brody to Marge and Homer (well, I made up the latter). Interesting nostaglia for "unbridled" sex of Fatal Attraction and especially Bull Durham, which the writer finds more "explicit" than anything in recent years. Meaning explicitly fun, I guess, without a dark under story. Or just more "balling."
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: email@example.com. Twitter: @GregMitch
