A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

Him and Her

on January 29, 2014

I saw “Her” tonight (and how weird was it to see a film with trailers for serious adult movies? I don’t think I’ve seen one in a decade.) I don’t have a lot to say about it,  other than that it was excellent and a terrible choice to see by myself — I practically flew into my husband’s arms when I got home — but I was struck by a scene which I’ve seen a number of times before in media about single men. (The show “Louie” particularly comes to mind.) It involves the single guy being highly taken aback to discover that the woman he’s about to have sex with is into something incredibly bizarre, which is a total buzz kill.

It was a very funny scene in the movie, beautifully acted, and I don’t have anything against the theme per se… though I suppose it’s potentially offensive to kinky people. I just thought it was kind of interesting to see this bit of… script? play out so often. I’m wondering what the equivalent is in media about single women. The hilariously awful bad date? But that’s in the single guy stuff too — it would have to be something more specific.
