James Franco Reviews “12 Years A Slave” For VICE But Not Without A Complaint About The Blowjob In “Shame”

“[As the sex addict in Shame] he wasn’t such an addict in my opinion … I mean, what did he do? Watch porn and screw a handful of people a week? I could point to quite a few folks who do that. And that scene where he’s at his lowest point and wants to fuck and…

The Soapbox: Stop Humiliating People For Their Sex Practices Online

For as long as we’re aware of other people’s dirty bits and sexual desires, we’re aware of how funny it can be to talk about them.

“In America they’re too scared of sex, that’s why he wasn’t nominated. If you look at the best actor list you’re saying, ‘Michael Fassbender is not on that list?’ It’s kind of crazy. But that’s how it is, it’s an American award, let them have it.”

Michael Fassbender Doesn’t Understand All The Fuss Over His Penis

“Half of us have a penis and the other half have probably seen one, and so why should it be more normal to, like, chop people’s heads off and shoot people? Does that mean that that’s more acceptable or closer to us as human beings?”
