Recently, even in 'classy' TV dramas, dull but vital background is often relayed in a love scene or in a strip club. Is this titillation a harmless thrill or a way to cover bad writing?
As I write this, a pneumatic young couple are writhing in the shagpile behind me. It's all grunts and groans and bodily fluids. By the time I've explained what I'm actually writing about, it will have turned into a full-blown orgy. But you'll be gripped. You'll stay for the explication, because you'll be transfixed by those golden bodies, entangled and unconstrained. That, in a nutshell, is "sexposition": the art of outlining all that tedious plot against a background of no-holds-barred sex. You might have seen a bit of it in Homeland, or maybe True Blood, both currently showing on British TV.
