Sex On TV: Belle Du Jour Double Books

On Monday night’s third episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Belle had an overnight job with a client — who only seemed to want to sleep. Bored out of her mind, Belle went downstairs to get a drink and meets another man who wants to hire her straight away. This is clearly the call girl’s version of when you have Friday night plans with that guy you’ve been seeing, but then that hot guy from work asks if you want to hang out and you agree to both without really considering the logistics. In the clip above, Belle explains the three rules of conversation with a client, which also totally apply to first dates as well. [Showtime: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl] Keep reading »

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 »
