Oral sex abounds

Oral sex abounds — The intimate act makes frequent appearances on screen

Posted on

Oral sex was everywhere this year. Of course, there was M*D*NN*’s celebration of same in picture and song. But also, in September Richard Rhodes’ ultrathorough memoir Making Love: An Erotic Odyssey offered a Kama Sutra of hetero- and homosexual oral gratification. And on the screen, actors concentrated heavily on that particular bedroom art: In Final Analysis, Eric Roberts forced Kim Basinger to do it. In Single White Female, Jennifer Jason Leigh forced herself on Bridget Fonda’s fiancĂ©. In Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Keanu Reeves was done unto by the Count’s three undead brides. And in Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas did unto each other as they would have others do unto them. And tongues wagged.
