Hubba Hubba, A Chat About Sex-Centric Movies

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, the OG trio — Rachel Handler, Hazel Cills, and Teo Bugbee — returns to co-host. We kick things off by unpacking the strange cultural response to two sex-centric movies in theaters now, Elle and The Handmaiden — specifically, the idea that all on-screen sex should be “realistic,” or representative of all sex, and the notion that female performers have zero agency when it comes to filming their own sex scenes. We also delve into this week’s controversial story about Bernardo Bertolucci and Maria Schneider and the rape scene in Last Tango in Paris. Later, Hazel shares how we can fuck with the Trump administration this week, and we all answer a Lady Problem for Jackie, who’s horrified by her co-workers’ politics.
