EP. 310 — Open Marriage

This week Paul, June, and Jason break down the 2017 “erotic” thriller Open Marriage—a movie Paul insists felt sexy to watch at night but sad to watch during the day. They discuss the sex club inhabited by masked mannequins, bouncer/bartender Vulnavia, the wicker baby carriage, and how the characters mirror the White Lotus season 2 couples. Plus, June asks the question, “Is it appropriate to take a bath at a friend’s house?”
