To think how sex is usually portrayed in TV/Film between women and men is awful?

Yes there are exceptions, but most TV and Film portray sex between a women and man as a bit of kissing/snogging and then penetration. That is it. I know if that is how I had sex I would never orgasm at all. It seems as if TV and Film are largely unaware of all the different kind of things a woman and man can do in sex.

Tv/movies in no way represent real life. No one wants to watch a film where a character announces they are off to the loo and returns after 20mins of film time. Someone goes into the shower then steps out sparkly clean with completely washed hair 30sec later, we are not subjected to the boredom of starting the shower up, shampooing, conditioning, soaping, rinsing etc. Thank god. Same for sex scenes, no way do I want to sit there watching 25mins of foreplay, just the 2min roll in the sack indicating two characters have gotten it on us fine. If you want any more than that go find a porno made by a woman for women I guess.

Helmetbymidnight - if you actually saw the thrusting then yes that would be graphic but you don't it's usually undercover anyway whereas it would be difficult to show that foreplay is going on without showing close ups of genitals and we really don't need to see that.

I just watched a Simple Favor. A few sex scenes, all very brief. One of them showed just the guy going down on the girl. Very quick and you knew what had happened but did not show the PIV. YANBU OP - you can have a brief sex scene without it being a false representation of what makes good sex for (most) women!

I wish they'd shower more. O be minute they are working all hours -with the help of 24 hr daycare the next they some how have the energy, clean underwear, up to date personal grooming and non smelly sweaty privates ready for shagging.
And they all breathe all over eachother far too much.
Not sexy at all

If you look at Tom Whipple’s book, ‘X and Why’, it looks at the different attitudes between men and women towards sex. It confirms that many studies indicate that the majority of women don’t orgasm through PIV sex. It also says that between 5 and 10% of women never orgasm at all. A further load of women say they orgasm, but in tests they didn’t appear to in the way that scientists understand. There’s a chapter on the purpose of the female orgasm, because from an evolutionary perspective it’s not necessary. There doesn’t appear to be a conclusion amongst the research!
