Awkward, Unsexy Sex Is Still Sexy

We’re not fashioning paradoxes for the hell of it; there’s something bizarrely hot about clumsy and/or deadpan sex. Why do the sex scenes in “Dogtooth” get to us?

How can it be that these robotic thrusts and blase strip scenes seem more human? Are humans really sexually bored? We ask this because (obviously) no one at Fleshbot is human. Anyway, long story short, “Dogtooth” (or “Kynodontas” in Greek) looks grand.

    Something very Sprocketsian to this, though not done as comedy, a parody of the sometimes dismal, always dressed in black, European aloofness (though most associated with the Left Bank in Paris & pretty much all of Berlin). I think, too, the arousal owes to this. It is so different from the dogs in baths of gonzo, the unbridled shirt doffing of girls going wild, the (at least in part) put-on moans of Porn Valley fare. Granted, those all seem quite… hot, if not erotic, but maybe they leave us wanting. They seem too… artificial. & then we get to thinking: maybe sex is really almost automatonic, just another task for the human machine, like balancing ledger-books, cooking dinner, collecting stamps. & these Euros, above, convey that.

    & maybe they’re not wrong. Certainly, Euros have plenty of sex, marry (or cheat) well — Carla Bruni, come on down; you’re the next spouse on the Presidential pole — & even engage in some of the same theatrics as their American (porn) peers — looking at you, Nacho — so it’s not bad to dance on Sprockets. Now, to answer just how right it is.
