Not enough sex on screen?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Aug 06, 2003

Do you ever wonder whether columnists from newspaper "Style" and "Arts" sections live in some sort of parallel universe?

The headline tells the story in "Arts" section feature from today's New York Times: "What's Happened to Sex in Movies?" It would be an oversimplification to say that the author perceives a shortage of heavy-breathing scenes in current films, but you get the general idea.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Part of the story that Elvis Mitchell is clueless about, but Michael Medved makes often is that sex-loaded films do not make money for Hollywood. Millions of us like our "exploding fireballs". In Mitchell's version of the Bizzarro world, people want to shell out $20 for a couple to see a story of a male prostitute and his pimp.
