Blogging foreplay is over. It’s finally time for the SEX! (now that I have your attention) BLOGATHON!
For the uninitiated (by which I intend a light double-entendre), this blogathon’s subject is movies that are devoted to artistically suggesting the subject of sex, through imaginative dialogue and imagery, rather than graphically depicting it. Any old movie can show you a beautiful naked body, but the “horse” dialogue in The Big Sleep? Let’s see Scarlett Johansson show that off in her cleavage!
Below are the participants in the blogathon, which runs from Fri., June 19 through Sun., June 21, 2015. The only set deadline is that the participants must have their entries posted by the end of the day on June 21.
If you are one of the participants, please scroll down to the “Comments” section and post the URL of your SEX! blog entry; once you have posted it, it will be linked to the listing of participants shown below.
If you are a visiting reader, the following list has links to both the blog entries and the blogs themselves. Even if a particular entrant’s SEX! blog isn’t posted as yet, I encourage you to visit each and all of these blogs, as they all have something unique and entertaining to say about a variety of movie-related topics. (And of course, definitely check out their entries for this blogathon!)
