138. Sex

May 2nd, 2016

Marking the beginning of a new trilogy of tangentially related episodes, this week's show is all about sex in cinema. Matt and Ed run through the history of sex in Hollywood and the varying levels of censorship that have been applied to it, discuss what makes for good and bad sex scenes, and ponder the particular peccadilloes of major filmmakers. They also come up with a few killer band names, bemoan the untimely demise of Indiewire, and compare their respective abilities to survive in a zombie and snow-based tabletop game.

Jon Bois' Pretty Good series can be viewed on SBNation, as can Breaking Madden and the sublime "The Death of Basketball".
Correction: Ed mistakenly says at one point that Stanley Donen directed Pillow Talk. The film was in fact directed by Michael Gordon.
