    Yesterday while surfing the TV-channels I saw a small part of some strange movie called "Shortbus".
    A very strange film indeed..
    It was well censored for TV and softcore all the way through. Yet it still had to be aired after midnight. (and this is in Denmark, the first country in the world to make porn legal :confused:)
    So I got curious...

    So, porn freak as I am, I trawled the Net until I found the original uncensored version hidden away on TPB.

    And now I have seen it...... And I say: OMFG!:redface:
    What a strange, sensual, feeling, loving, weird, freakish movie....
    Best X-rated movie I have EVER seen in my life ! Seriously!

    I won't even try to tell the plot, because if I tell that it's about a girl who has trouble orgasming, it just sounds like some cheesy porn on sale from the local sex shop.

    Only thing I will reveal is this: Homophobic people should maybe consider skipping this movie... *grin*:eek: It has some very graphic gay scenes in it that pushed my limits pretty far.
    For the rest of you: Find it, and watch it.

    I wasn't impressed by it...the story line was inchoate to say the least, and the stylistic presentation presumed too much from the audience, IMO.

    That said, the opening scene where the main character is getting nailed in the shower with her boobs smashed against the glass was perfectly executed...and I loved the line where she tells another character that she's "pre-orgasmic."
    :biggrin1:
