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.
