It’s that time of year again — time to get all hot and bothered about sexy cinema, as we present
As usual, we are seeking blog entries about movies that subtly suggest sex — through dialogue, camera angles, etc. — rather than blatantly depict it.
If you’re stuck for ideas, click here, here and here for links to entries from our past SEX! blogathons. Otherwise, simply follow the rules posted below.
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 15, through Sunday, June 17, 2018. 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 17, 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! Here is the list of entries so far, in chronological order:
