A: funny how most images relating to sex in movies don’t actually involve sex. Far more often, we see the after-sex scene, with couple lying in bed, woman’s head on man’s chest.
M: you know I’ve seen quite a bit of porno. There isn’t any sex in pornos either.
A: how do you mean?
M: that’s not sex. It’s so mechanical. What absurdity! If someone was actually able to film sex, watching would probably make you cry. It would be uncomfortable—too intense, too beautiful—to watch.
