Everybody knows there's
sex in the movies.
Always has been.
Always will be.
That's what made the careers of Cecil B. De Mille, Gloria Swanson and Busby Berkeley.
But just how much "sex" did we really see?
That depends!
The Studios certainly tried to get away with as much as they could get away with but even they couldn't forsee what  the audience, especially the reviewers, would think they saw on the silver screen.
So Maven is giving you basic training in
. . .
Sex in the Cinema 101!
