What I's It With Sex And Horror?

Recommended Posts

Why would society needs to not only hypersexualize, but also normalize sex itself?  That would make sex into more of a mess than it already is in.

 

Sex is far from being demonized.  In fact, sex has been justified and made casual over the past several centuries (hell, look at Fifty Shades of Grey).  Sex hasn't been hushed up; it's been chatted up all day, and yet it is still a mess.  Sex has lost its value as an intimate thing, as a special thing, and as a romantic thing.  It's turned from that into just a thing.  A feel good.  To those who still hold traditional values on sex, there is hope, but otherwise we are in a sexual mess as a species.  No standards, no lines, no morals on sexual behavior.  We are like addicts to a drug.

 

And you know, I don't care what a company does with sex (this thread was mostly out of curiosity) but I don't have to like it, and if it begins to affect the culture and people I live with in this world then I have concerns.

 

 

Animals have sex to reproduce.

 

Humans with values have sex to grow closer to the one they truly love.

 

Humans have sex to feel good.

 

I understand your point, you're right, I agree, but I think the society has a debate between demonize sex and at the same time use it to get attention. While many will say that having sex outside of marriage is immoral, you see ""provocative"" women in tv ads or see "Fifty shades of Grey" as something innovative and prohibited. I think sex MUST BE consensual and desired ALWAYS. Having sex with your partner or not, having sex heterosexual or not, that are options and all are respectable. BUT, I understand you. I'm feel weird. I'm not traditional and I think it shows in my opinions, but still seems that sexual freedom has forgotten the sexual freedom to choose not wanting to have sex with anyone. It isn't traditional, is confidence. I don't easily trust people.

I would agree, except that I think we have less sexual freedom and more sexual responsibility.

 

The outcome of traditional sex is pregnancy.  Thus sex being treated so casually means that people have a lack of responsibility with sex.  Underage sex is illegal, having sex with minors is illegal, and so on.  There are grounds in which sex should and is prohibited.

 

Sexual freedom without exercise of sexual responsibility makes for a sexually immoral and decaying country.  Which is where I think our education system gets it wrong.  We are teaching kids how to have sex, instead of teaching them how they should treat sex; meaning to treat it with tenderness, with sanctity, with respect, and with responsibility.  I'm not necessarily for pure abstinence teaching but hell it wouldn't hurt to tell our youngsters that abstinence is an overall good idea...  After all, if education isn't helping to instill values, then what good is it doing for us?

 

"Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil." ~ CS Lewis

 

TL;DR

 

We should teach people that sex should be treated with responsibility, and that there are good and better choices that can be made about sex, instead of teaching kids how to have sex.  Education should instill values as well as ideas, for both are forms of knowledge.

I don't like children, definitely be mother isn't in my plans, but I agree with you totally.

I only watch those films for the beautiful death scenes. My mouth gets watery right before the murder happens. I feel indifferent towards the sex scenes, but I'd do anything to get my hands on an uncut release of Friday the 13th Part VII, if only the cut content wasn't destroyed by the studio.

This is painfully simple. They're exploitation films. Lowest common denominator. It's been that way since the 1920s. This is because fear and lust are the two strongest drives we humans have. Simple as that. Why are they so often young people? Two reasons. They're trying to appeal to young audiences, and because young people are hot. It's kind of disappointingly simple really. Some horror movies do it with more meaning, like Hellraiser, but in general, it's exploitation.

You're entirely right.

 

All anyone has to do is listen to Sean S. Cunningham talk about why they made the original Friday the 13th, Last House on the Left- he was all about exploitation. There was a boom of that in the 60's and 70's, including the rise of pornography. Friday the 13th is an exploitation film that just happened to turn out to be a really good film.

 

It seems every horror film, EVERY SINGLE ONE I KNOW contains lots or some amount of sex.

For Friday The 13th it makes sense to me: Counselors had sex and neglected Jason Voorheese. Thus Pamela Voorhees kills the sex crazed teens to keep the camp closed and for revenge. But it looks like it's just a common theme in slasher films.

And I don't have a political problem against it, they can do what they want with their movies (personal is a different story) but I'm genuinely curious. It seems to always be teens and always be parties. Is that just the clichè?

I think the goal of a good horror film is to lower us to our base emotions, that seems to be best accomplished with sex and death. Our own fears and sexuality are much more complex than the story we see on the screen and it heightens the experience of the film when a filmmaker successfully taps into them.

I think they just go together.

 

Part of it was establishing some sort of 'rules' within the slasher genre. I don't think it was about making any political statements, despite the common denominator being men and women die after sex or during sex in these films. In Scream, that 'rule' was turned upside down when the killer and his girlfriend had sex. She survived, he died after he was killed by his girlfriend.

I'm not quite sure what this tread is about anymore but, I don't see the point of sex in the multiplayer game. Jason just appeared and instead of escaping you decide to have sex. It just doesn't make sense. The only time I could see this working is if there is a single player mode when you are Jason silently stalking the counselors. Picking them off one by one until you are discovered which then throws the npcs into a panic. It doesn't have to be explicit either. Just have them under the covers and giggling or something. Just my thoughts.

How about an insane mini-game like when you are trying to put the gas nozzle in the car only "harder"? Then once the nozzle is in, another insane mini game to get the gas out....both parties take place in this game. .....and just like in the movies if you get caught in bed you both die! F--kers!!!

 

 

***it could be almost impossible like the NES "Top Gun" in flight refueling or carrier landing! But....if you find the viagra it makes the game easier and...if you play as Ric Flair you can get all the counselors at one time....Wooooooo!

 

 

Hahahahahah
