Note to family and others who don’t want to read about my personal sex life: This piece, and the piece it links to, doesn’t go into a lot of detail about my personal sex life, but it mentions it in passing. Use your judgment about whether you want to read it. Thanks.
I have a new piece on the Blowfish Blog. It’s a review of the new heist movie, “The Bank Job,” and… well, do you remember that Saturday Night Live sketch about the welder’s review of “Flashdance”? This is sort of like that.
This is the sadomasochist’s review of “The Bank Job.”
It’s called The Bank Job, And The Normalizing Of Kink, and here’s the teaser:
Now, secret sex — even secret sadomasochistic sex — being used to drive a movie plot is hardly unusual. It’s barely worth even mentioning, much less writing an entire column about. But thereâs something about the kink in “The Bank Job” thatâs very unusual indeed… so unusual in mainstream movies as to be almost unheard of.
And that’s this: The movieâs attitude towards the sadomasochism is entirely casual, and entirely non-judgmental.
To find out more, read the rest of the piece. Enjoy!
