Movies That Teach Men Horrible Lessons About Sex

The Cracked Podcast #156December 12, 2016

You know how when you watch and old movie and there’s a Y2K joke or a WAZZZZUUUP and you think, “man, this hasn’t aged well.” There’s now a whole category of those movies that are just classically heroic dudes being absolute dicks to women. There’s even a whole supercut (https://goo.gl/ejmmDH)  of all the times James Bond hits women. Just Sean Connery slapping women left and right like he’s Moe and every Bond girl is Larry and Curly.

Now, hear us out on this, but there’s a chance that images like this might have been hurting women instead of helping them. Crazy. Maybe normalizing violence against women or showing Harrison Ford literally whipping (https://goo.gl/QRB2Gw)  Kate Capshaw into kissing him have given men unrealistic ideas about how things like consent work.

This week Jack O’Brien brings on Carmen Angelica, Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) and Katy Stoll to talk about the modern-day minefield of consent, what movies have been getting wrong about it, why it’s so easy for guys to get defensive about it and a female perspective on why it’s so damn important.
