“People are saying this is ‘Sex and the City’ for the next generation,” said Conan O’Brien, speaking to Lena Dunham, on last night’s episode of “Conan.” The Los Angeles Times called Dunham’s show “Girls” “the uncomfortably true voice of millennial women.” And The New Yorker attacked “Girls” for its lack of inclusivity: “‘Girls’ also paints a revealing picture because of what, or whom, it leaves out. The show’s young women are protected, in part, by privilege,” notes writer Margaret Talbot.

On last night’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dr. Callie Torres struggled with her feelings for Dr. Erica Hahn. Neither of them has been in a same-sex relationship before, and Callie isn’t sure she’s going to like the sex part. In the above clip, Dr. Miranda Bailey gives Callie some advice that all of us could use whenever we’re doing something for the first time. See, you shouldn’t really be doing anything that you don’t feel comfortable talking about. Now, didn’t we all learn that in seventh-grade sex ed? Keep reading »
Manhattan’s hottest and most scandal ridden family, “The Darlings”, came back into our lives last night with the season two premiere of “Dirty Sexy Money.” And if last night’s episode was any indication of the drama yet to come, we are surely in for a tantalizing ride.
Opening the episode was family lawyer Nick George (and last week’s Daily Hotness) on his way to his not-such-a-surprise birthday party thrown by the Darlings. The song “Under Pressure” by Queen is playing in the background to signify that Nick is feeling some sort of heat. What else is new? About 10 minutes into his party, after several rounds of awkwardness, the NYPD shows up via helicopters and ground force. The episode now goes to 48 hours earlier. Keep reading »
McDreamy and McSteamy aren’t the only studs heating up Grey’s Anatomy. On Thursday’s episode, there was some bonus guy-on-guy action. A couple hot-bodied and hot-blooded military men we’re making soft-lipped love. One was even still in his uniform — God Bless America! If you’d like to get in on the drama, check out the clip above. This is especially cool considering the show had some gay bashing problems backstage last year. Now, fingers crossed they’ll get Steams and Dreams to make out…talk about a fantasy sequence!
Poor you, you can’t keep those two naughty boys of yours under control! We’ve got Silas seducing that cougar on the counter-top at her cheese shop and Shane hitting that boy in the face with a lunch tray. Keep reading »
While sex used to be saved for cable television shows, networks have been trying to compete by showing some skin themselves. Hits like Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives have been steaming the storylines, and the ratings, up. Over the past few years the change has been so noticeable, consumer watchdogs, the Parents Television Council, decided to launch a “Happily Never After” study to test how much of the sex being shown was in the context of a wholesome marriage. Needless to say, the numbers reflected what married friends keep telling their single gal pals — sex is way more interesting when you’re unattached. According to the research, which examined four weeks worth of network prime time programming last fall, there was three times as much dirty talk and four times as many eyefuls of un-wedded sexual bliss than there were married couples getting it on. And the sex itself isn’t exactly vanilla either! Voyeurism, masturbation, threesomes, fetishes, S&M, transsexuals and sex toys have been making television shows spicier. But is it too hot to handle? Not even the critics think so. Airing the kinks we’ve all come to know and love is just a sign of the times — it’s art imitating life. [Forbes] Keep reading »
All this talk about polyamory has convinced me it’s time to confess a rather intimate secret: I’m a fan of Swingtown on CBS. I know I can’t be the only fan out there — the message boards prove that (Yes, I’m actually reading the message boards. Look, my boyfriend’s been away on business. I’m lonely.), but it’s been difficult to find anyone in real life who admits to watching the show.
I have a new favorite show, well, for now. Secret Diary Of A Call Girl debuted last night and I love it. A British import based on the blog by call girl Belle Du Jour. Billie Piper plays Belle (real name: Hannah), a call girl who loves sex, loves money, and loves having sex for money. Does the show glamorize prostitution? At first glance, i.e. the first episode, sure. But Belle is a high-class call girl — as she reminds us in the clip above — and isn’t exactly trolling the streets having sex to feed her drug habit. I’ve read that the show will start to reveal that Belle has a hard time keeping her professional life and her personal life as Hannah separate, but in the meantime, I found the show hilarious, sexy (oh goodness, there is much nakedness), and smart — and Billie Piper has some serious acting chops. Check out the clip above and if you like what you see, head on over to Showtime and watch the first two episodes for free. [Showtime: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl] Keep reading »
