It’s time to ring in Summer 2017 and wring out those sweaty handkerchiefs. For the third year in a row, the SEX! (now that I have your attention) Blogathon is back in town! Join us for the next three days as bloggers pay tribute to movies that cleverly suggest sex rather than overtly depicting it.

If you are one of the ‘thon entrants, please go to the “Comments” section below, and post the name of your blog and the URL of your entry; we’ll link to you as soon as possible. If you are just here to read, keep us bookmarked; all entries will be linked back to their original blogs, and also we will do a ‘thon recap at the end of each day. Enjoy, and try not to get too hot and bothered!

Here is the list of blogathon entries, in chronological order:

Charlene’s (Mostly) Classic Movie Reviews – Trouble in Paradise (1932)

Do you have a favorite movie that subtly suggests sex rather than blatantly showing it? If so, tell us all about it in our annual summer blogathon! Click here for the rules.

Announcing the 3rd Annual “SEX! (now that I have your attention) BLOGATHON)”

Sex1

It’s time for our yearly foray into risque business that we call the…

SEX! (now that I have your attention) BLOGATHON

Held every year to usher in the summer season, we ask for blog entries about movies that suggestively depict sex through dialogue and imagery. (Think pre-1960’s, especially movies that had to submit to the Production Code. And if you’re stuck for ideas, click here and here for links to entries from our past SEX! blogathons.)

Here are the rules for our sizzling summer ‘thon:

Your blog entry can be about any single movie, as long as it fits the following criteria.

1. You need to write about an entire movie that you find sexy, not just a single scene. The upside-down kiss in the 2001 Spider-Man movie was undeniably sexy, but unless you can make a case for the entire movie being a turn-on, please don’t write about it.

2. The movie you choose can be from any era (even silent), but it needs to be a movie that subtly suggests sex. No writhing, naked bodies, and no explicit dialogue about how much one person wants to go to bed with another.

That’s not to say that your choice can’t be a modern movie with adult dialogue. If you can make a solid case for something like, say, Body Heat (which was a modern homage to 1940’s-style movie sex), I’ll accept it.

3. Explain why you think the movie is sexy. Your explanation does not have to be lurid or explicit, just a simple description of why the movie “does something” for you.

How Do I Join the Blogathon?

In the “Comments” section at the bottom of this blog, please leave your name, the URL of your blog, and the movie you are choosing to blog about. At the end of this blog entry are banners for the ‘thon. Grab a banner, display it on your blog, and link it back to this blog.

The blogathon will take place from Friday, June 16, through Sunday, June 18, 2017. When the opening date of the blogathon arrives, leave a comment here with a link to your post, and I will display it in the list of entries (which I will continually update up to the beginning of the ‘thon, so keep checking back!).

I will not be assigning particular dates to any blog posts. As long as you get your entry in by the end of the day on June 18, I will be satisfied. (That said, the earlier the better!) Duplicate entries about the same movie are welcome as well.

Again, be sure to leave me a comment and grab a banner, and have fun with your blog entry!
