Film lovers will love this!

Most definitely not safe for work!

Film lovers will love this!: A celebration of sexuality in award-winning European films.

A tip of the hat (which, in the spirit of the old joke, one should hang on to) to Hydra009 at Rants 'n Raves who comments:
[The] raunchy clip was criticized as "immoral" by sexually-repressed European fundie douchebags. "They do have an image problem but I think cobbling together 44 seconds of soft porn on the internet is not a brilliant way of solving it," a Conservative British MEP said.

Undaunted by the criticism, the European Union spokesman retorted, "The European Union is not a bible belt, we believe in freedom of expression and artistic creativity,"

    Well, I suppose it gave more people more fun than most of the things the EU wastes our tax on. We'll draw a veil over the fund it was meant to promote. BTW, the douchebag in question was Polish. Just sayin'.

  2. What? The EU wastes tax dollars? I'm disillusioned! ::wink::

    I'm not sure what the nationality of the douchebag in question has to do with anything.

    Not much - I just read the bit you snipped as saying that the British MEP was the one saying immoral. But in fact he was making a more sensible point, and the immoral bit was a Polish Catholic anti-gay contribution. I was thinking, religious idiot, and typed Polish as shorthand for Catholic. Haven't done my post-chemo brain reboot yet.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.
