For your information, I am FAR from a prude when it comes to the topic of human sexuality. In fact, quite the opposite. You don't know me, so I would appreciate it if you would not make judgments about people you do not personally know. My objection to such terms as "sexual freedom" is due to the fact that I am quite attuned to code words and terminology, and what it portends. The term "sexual freedom" is code language in general society for blending pornographic content into the mainstream film media...a practice that began in the late 1960's, and mushroomed after that. I recall for example, the late great Katherine Hepburn commenting in a television interview that such films today are "filth"...her terminology, not mine. One outstanding example of this would be the film FATAL ATTRACTION (1987), starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. If I wanted to see this kind of content in a mainstream motion picture, I could simply purchase a porn film. I don't need to spend $20 at a movie theater.
I never thought of the term "sexual freedom" as a "code" for "blending pornographic content" into mainstream film media. Just more or less a referral to injecting more (let's say) sexual frankness and honesty into some film story presentation. Or more or less matters of personal and/or societal behavior.
Wow! You equate FATAL ATTRACTION with a "porn film", eh? and yet, claim NOT to be a prude?
Can't IMAGINE what you think about CARNAL KNOWLEDGE('71)
and BTW...I don't recall ever referring to you specifically as being a prude. So lay off the FaceBook type indignation.
