i'm new here and don't know the stance on fucking, so apologies in advance if I'm cumming in the proverbial bird bath here.
 
the intention of this thread is to discuss the erotic aspect of media and share interesting or weird finds. this is not a spank bank.
 
so, here we go.

the lead up to the fucking in this video is almost genuinely, intentionally awkward. neither of them look like they really want to be there, or enjoy each others company. the unidentifiable organic matter on a stick that they're roasting looks bland and factory produced, and compliments the music well. it's like both actors know that they're in a shitty porno, and express general apathy towards the whole concept. this is further conveyed through the absolute lack of dialogue; they're there for one reason, so why doll it up with pretense or triviality. then the man gives the woman "the look" and they both set down their organic matter, walk away from the fire as if to separate the heat from their subsequent actions, and fuck as plainly as possible. after all is said and done, the dude walks away with an ambivalent wave towards his mate, as if to say "I'm going to go do nothing somewhere else now," and the woman enjoys her organic matter in the nude, completely unphased by the whole event and looking to satisfy the other human urge.

this is just a bunch of mildly suggestive tones of skin and red melding together while harsh classical music plays. nifty!

does anybody else get a sense of purgatorial anguish mixed with stagnated comfort while watching sketch cartoons set in suburban locations? this is something I first experienced when I was very young and had a bad flu. this meant I was allowed to stay up late and watch adult swim. what I remember about it was being horrified and intrigued by whichever episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force was on. I've experienced the same sensation on a few occasions since then, and although it's affected my creative process in a few ways, it's always been hard to articulate, so please bear with me.
 
the easiest way I can describe it is a dreadful lack of opportunity associated with characters who have a "home" setting, never leave that home in their narrative due to a lack of need or desire to, and end the narrative with no hope or intention of doing so. absurdity also lies in the creator never implying this message, meaning that there really is "new opportunities" in either the characters, or the plot that binds them.  ATHF is the main show I've gotten this sense from; often the only characters with speaking roles are the three main characters and Carl, and they're responsible for most of the show's dialogue. where it get's odd for me is the setting; they live in what seems to be a community on the outskirts of a major city, but are the only living things ever encountered, aside from the occasional passing plot point. the idea of a community, the fact that these characters are part of a living world, is contrasted with the lack of any other consistent influences, and produces some of this dread. they rarely have a need to leave this place, and seem content in their home.
 
when I watch this show, I get the sense that they're going to be in the same house, bumping heads with each other and sometimes Carl, forever. I associate it with concepts of purgatory now, and used to cast it under the broader idea of eternity. I feel it further reflected in the static of the characters. their unchanging personalities convey an unawareness/acceptance of their circumstances.
 
a show I've also experienced this in, although to a lesser degree, is Beavis and Butthead. they're are more vivacious communal aspects there, meaning that not every episode take place in the same local. but it has the same sense of "small town american dread" for me. there is little going on in any of the characters lives aside from their own interests and motives, interactions arise only out of circumstance and rarely go anywhere. like in any suburbs, there's nothing to do, so the characters do nothing. we're they not comedic shows, I feel the sense would be lost, as more ambitious plot structures may arise. the humor is derived from the characters stupidity, which in turn, I feel, is derived from the same lack of anything resembling stimulation.
 
there are a few movies I can think of that capture this well, and I feel they we're more intentional at it too. Napoleon Dynamite, with it's grey depictions of the American Heartlands, captured it well. much of the humor, I felt, was derived from characters living their lives, only to be interrupted by cultural imports from more lively portions of America (Napoleon's thrift store tapes, Chip's girlfriend.) And although the movie began in the same vaccum as the previously mentioned works, there was a conflict that was eventually resolved, which managed to subdue some of it under a heartwarming coming-of-age-sort-of tale.
 
then there was What's Eating Gilbert Grape, in which Gilbert had no prospects thanks to his family and the quiet nature of the surrounding community. to leave it all behind was one of his motivations, and was accomplished throughout the course of the movie. once again, the dread of living in the middle of nowhere subsides when you have somewhere to go.
 
anyway, there are several other movies I can think of, but I want to have you guys talk at me. is there some thematic concept that I'm describing a specific example of here? does anyone else have any other examples they can think of?
 
sorry for the wall of text

hello, after several requests from a friend I signed up for the Salt World Forums to discuss "cool things with cool people" and find new meanings in old assumptions, however, on signing up, i was presented with a borderline unanswerable question, and though I deciphered it lately, i felt it uncool and perhaps offensive to my person. though i look forward to contributing, i hope that there will be fewer buttercups like this in the future.
