Sex On TV: “Call Girl” Has Family Values

The second episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl aired last night on Showtime, and Belle came out of it as a really endearing character. Basically, she goes to a sex party with a creepy, clingy guy. At the party, she meets and starts hooking up with her favorite author and a couple other people (yes, an orgy). She ditches her date, the guy who paid her to go with him to the party (he’ll get a refund, I’m sure) to go home with the author and his friend. As they’re getting into the car, she gets a bunch of messages from her family saying her sister’s having a baby. She abandons the hot author and the prospect of having an orgy, and goes straight to the hospital wearing her feather-accented outfit. I was really proud of Belle for leaving, even though her sister was pissed that she wasn’t there for the actual birth. Keep reading »

Sex On TV: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl Wets Our Appetite

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 »

Quote Of The Day: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl

Secret Diary of a Call Girl, the new show about a high-class hooker in London, premieres on Showtime next week. The Frisky was lucky enough to get a sneak preview earlier this week, and now you can too (definitely NSFW though) at SHO.com. Here are three of the best lines from the series premiere:

  1. “The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a whore.”
  2. “I always use men’s deodorant, never perfume. A professional never lets her client leave smelling of women.”
  3. “Convince him you’re wet and you’re halfway there.”

To watch the first two episodes of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, visit SHO.com. The series officially airs Mondays at 10:30 pm right after Weeds.[Showtime] Keep reading »

This American Life: Two Sides To A Jackie O Sighting

On Showtime’s This American Life, NPR’s Robert Krulwich and his wife tell the same story but disagree on a few key factors, including whether Robert was actually present when his wife had an encounter with Jackie Onassis. Sometimes couples disagreeing can be cute, especially when they’re represented in cartoon form. My favorite part might be when they go from the present to a flashback and lose about 20 pounds off their round behinds. [This American Life via MentalFloss.com] Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Ira Glass

This Sunday night, Ira Glass is coming back to my place…through my cable provider. From behind the desk of his NPR radio show, Glass sweet talked himself and his stories into our hearts. Now with his highly anticipated Showtime series about to start its second season, he is the face of modern American mythology and revolutionary reality television. When he took to the stage last night in New York City to boldly go where no man had gone before — doing This American Life live and via national simulcast, the sexy storyteller seduced the audience with his casual charm, quick wit, and signature tight grey suit. Our Emily and I giggled and cheered like he was a Beatle along with the gaggle of other horn-rimmed-glasses-groupies. And from what we saw of the show, the new season looks as smart and as good as the man himself! Keep reading »
