Pour Some Sexy On It episode art, featuring sexy scenes from various tv shows and movies

Ever since the advent of movies enterprising humans have asked that age-old important question “how can we use this for sex?” That’s not hyperbole; the modern motion picture dates back to 1893, and erotic films like Le coucher de la mariée (aka The Bride’s Bedtime) were being produced in wide release as early as 1896. Really, people in general are just horny and they always have been. So much so that some movies and TV shows seem to be “about sex” more than they are about anything else. On today’s episode Monica, Wayne and Mav team up with Ayanni Cooper and Corrine Matthews, the hosts of the Sex. Love. Literature podcast, to talk all about sexy media. From CW shows like Riverdale to SyFy’s Magicians to Netflix’s Bridgerton to to HBOMax’s Titans to Korean dramas like Hometown Cha Cha Cha, what does it mean to be a sexy TV show? Can a boring show be made interesting if you just “pour some sexy on it?”

The answer isn’t as straight forward as it seems. After all, aren’t shows like Riverdale or Nancy Drew just what happens when you “pour some sexy” on children’s literature? Aren’t the Arrowverse and Titans what happens when you “pour some sexy” on comics superheroes? But isn’t there more to it than that? On this week’s supersized episode, we argue that pouring some sexy on your show allows for a greater understanding of normative and non-normative sexuality. Will sexy TV and movies allow for a greater understanding of queerness, non-monogamy, and non-binary genders? Listen and let us know what you think in the comments.
