|Hello? Women over 25 loved an entire series about sex.|
In the New Yorker piece, Faris and the film’s director, Mark Mylod, watch a scene from the film. In it, Faris’s character declares that she’s a “whore,” and wants someone who will “appreciate that” about her. During a test screening, the audience laughed at the line, but the director remained wary. “Younger women lap up the nudity and sexual humor,” he was quoted as saying. “Women over 25—some are worried by it.”
What most men and Hollywood don't get about women beyond college age is this: we do not find humor in being called derogatory names. We do not think being called, or having your characters call themselves, whore or slut or whatever "funny" thing your writers come up with laughable.
Unlike some of your younger, less experienced audience, we know something about discrimination and don't appreciate the efforts to keep us "in our place" by making our sexual selves the butt of the joke. And since when do you figure we don't enjoy nudity? Oh, maybe because it's pretty much only there to gratify the men in the audience...
Don't write off women over 25 as being over sex - what we are over is male oriented, juvenile and I'll use the m word, misogynistic "entertainment."
