Im sick of todays movies. Its always about sex, sex & more sex. Just like that new movie "friends with benefits" starring justine timberlake (who bought myself with a few other idiots) & that mousey girl on that 70s show & family guy (i dont remember the bimbos name).

The subject of sex itself doesn't bother me, but these portrayals of people blatantly using each other to satisfy their own needs does.

Shakespeare probably utilized sex as his most consistent theme.

What's wrong with movies about sex?

I don't know about you, but I love sex. I do it all the time, it never ceases to be enjoyable, and the interplay between the 2 genders concerning sex never really ceases to be fascinating, if we're being honest with ourselves.

If you are sick of sex movies, go to one of the thousands of films centered around non-sex-related themes. Believe it or not, they're out there. Griping about your inability to find alternatives seems pointless to me.

Stop being so uptight. Films and art are not meant to conform merely to religious mores.

What exactly did you think a movie called "friends with benefits" was going to be about?

Perhaps she assumed it would be extended scenes from the Friends TV series.

That would've been a better first post.

If you deplore sex in your movies, you're not lacking for options. Super 8 is getting great reviews, 13 Assassins is a tremendous foreign film getting 90% + at RT.com, and the new X-men and Thor movies have been reviewed well. If you live in an area with an art-house theater, you'll be exposed to plenty of films without some juvenile sex repartee clogging up the screentime.

If you think all the movies are about sex, you're not looking.

Super8 sounds awesome. Ill wait till it comes out on dvd. I dont mind a lil sex in movies or even nudity but sometimes it gets to be a bit too much. Thats just my 2 cents. To each his or her own.

Well don't pick crappy sex movies. Friends with Benefits? I'd boycott that on pure lack of originality.

Blue Valentine has some dirty scenes but manages some artistic effort, too.

You don't object to sex, per se, but how it's used.

It's the same with racist comedy: If the joke is good, it doesn't offend people. If it's not funny, it's racist.
