Lee and Daniel are back to cap off this run of the sex comedy series, this time with their friend and returning special guest Kit Power, who suggested the films they cover in this episode. We get to see more of the on-screen talents of Ann-Margret in the flashy Elvis film "Viva Las Vegas" (1964) & in the deep-but-depressing "Carnal Knowledge" (1971). Was Elvis a good actor, or did Ann-Margret steal his thunder? Can two people have six or seven dates in one day? Is a mash-up of "Viva Las Vegas" and "Death Race 2000" a good idea? Are there any easy answers to how to help the deeply flawed characters in "Carnal Knowledge"? How does Jack Nicholson fuck, and would we sleep with him? Also: what we've watched as of late and some REALLY terrible Elvis impersonation.

The sex comedy series continues. The whole gang is back together to tackle two well-known porn parodies that came out long before the recent porn parody fad of the last few years. They cover 1974's "Flesh Gordon", as well as its sequel from 1990, "Flesh Gordon Meets the Cosmic Cheerleaders". Inbetween their own terrible jokes and wild tangents, Lee, Daniel and Paul consider the level of humour in both films, the production value of the films, the festishes on display, and how offensive one ten minute sequence is on almost every level (hint: it involves shit... walking, talking shit). They also cover what they've all watched and/or purchased as of late.

Lee and Daniel continue their look at sex comedies, again trying out something old and something more "modern". This time out it's the Italian anthology sex comedy "The Queens" (1966), featuring four beautiful ladies of the period, and then they take another trip to Canada to take a look at the "Police Academy" rip-off "Recurits" (1986). Lee also talks about two films he recently watched.

After almost two years of going in other directions, Lee and Daniel bring the podcast back to their sex comedy series. Starting off they look at what might be the prototype for the teen beach movie in 1963's "Beach Party", and then they jump twenty years ahead to look at one of the most obvious dick joke flms ever made with 1983's "Joysticks". Listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel are back to finish off their second run of sex comedies. This week they look at the four films in the "Meatballs" franchise, although they mostly focus on the final two parts. Is it really a franchise? Are any of the sequels any good at all? Should they do a commentary track for "Meatballs Part II"? Tune in to find out. Also covered: listener comments and Daniel surprising Lee with the challenge of impersonating Vinnie Jones, if he were to appear in films not actually in his resume, like he had done briefly in the previous episode. No promises on the quality of the Vinnie Jones impersonation!

Lee and Daniel are back for their second-to-last installment of this continuation of their look at sex comedies. Covered this time are the dive-in classic "Gas Pump Girls" (1979) & the box office flop from 2004, "EuroTrip". How exactly does one pump gas in little-to-no clothing? Are all European men rapists? Will absinthe make you see things? All of this and more is pondered in this episode! Also: a new version of the desert island game, listener comments, and what they've watched as of late.

Lee and Dainel are back for another entry into their sex comedy series. This time out they look at "Summer Job" from 1989 & "Bikini Drive-In" from 1995. One of these may just have made the bottom 5 films they've ever reviewed for the podcast. Also they cover listener comments, what they've watched as of late, and there's some interesting follow-up to the films they covered in the previous episode.

This time they tackle the film Daniel claims is the 'Citizen Kane' of the genre in 1984's "Hardbodies", and then they look at yet another obscure Canadian production, "Perfect Timing" (1986). Also: Lee briefly covers the short from Astron-6 called "Cool Guys", which is heavily influenced by "Hardbodies" and similar films... as well as "Jacob's Ladder"?

Lee and Daniel get into the second installment of their return to the podcast's sex comedy series. This time out they go all the way back to 1973 to talk about the softcore romp, sure to cause a rise in your Levi's, "The Cheerleaders", and then they jump ahead to 1986 to check out one of (if not the) most obscure Canadian-made sex comedies, "One Night Only", and its introduction to the viewer of 'THE SCARY CAVE'. Also covered: listener comments, what they've watched as of late, and a follow-up to a question Lee posed on the Facebook group about the child of Bob and Carol from the film "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice", covered in the previous episode.

This week Lee and Daniel jump back into their look at sex comedies. Before they jump right into the den of sleaze for the rest of the series, they start off by cleaning their palates with a much more respectable sex comedy from 1969, "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice": a film that tackles the topic of open relationships, among other things. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.

Daniel and Lee return to finish off their sex comedy series with a fairly in-depth look at 1984's "Revenge of the Nerds", as well as a bit of talk about the 1987 sequel and a very brief look at the aborted TV pilot and the made-for-TV sequels. Rape, racism, tits and toilet humor are all discussed this time out, as well as nerd culture in general.

This time out they taking a look at a film that may very well be the granddaddy of the modern sex comedy in Russ Meyer's "The Immoral Mr. Teas" (1959) and then they check out a real odd-ball from 1984 in "The Party Animal". Also: requests to you the listener for feedback and ideas for the Movie God game, and what we've been watching as of late.

This time out Lee and Daniel take a sharp detour from the more overt T&A comedies and look into three films that deal with sexual issues on a more serious level (although there's many dick and fart jokes to be had). We look at Kevin Smith's "Clerks" (1994), "Clerks II" (2006), and "Chasing Amy" (1997). Don't expect an in-depth look at all three films, as that would require a much longer podcast. Instead, we just try and break down some of the major sexual themes in each film. Also, we also cover what we've been watching and play yet another round of Movie God.
Featured music: "Alive", performed by Joey Lauren Adams.

Lee and Daniel return for part four of a spring-long look at sex comedies from various eras. This time out we go straight into a flat-out softcore sex comedy with "Busty Cops" (2004), and then we return to another Crown International Pictures release in 1982's "The Beach Girls". We also play another round of Movie God and Lee briefly talks about seeing "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
End music: "California Girls" by David Lee Roth.

" (1977), "Malibu Beach
" (1978) and "Van Nuys Blvd.

Lee and Daniel are back for part 2 of our sex comedy series; exploring the value or lack thereof of selected films from the genre. This time out we look at one of Daniel's favourites growing up in "The Malibu Bikini Shop" (1986), and then we move over to two loosely connected films, also from the mid-1980s, in "Hot Dog... The Movie" (1984) and "Hamburger: The Motion Picture" (1986). We also cover two recently deceased character actors in Geoffrey Lewis and Tom Towles; things we've recently watched, and general film nostalgia.
