The whole crew is on board for the podcast's long-overdue return to sex comedies. Up first it's the last of Troma studio's initial four sex comedy releases in 1983's "The First Turn-On!!". This sex comedy, formatted as an anthology film, has a lot to mull over. The hosts talk about how this might have been the first true Troma film, the gross-out gags, and the surprising positive attitudes towards sex given its genre and when it was made. Where's the rape? Is it so cleverly dumb that anything "offensive" just isn't? Would the hosts eat food stored in a cave? Why is Lee angry about the soundtrack? What can Paul tell us about a circle jerk involving a cracker? All of this and more (as well as listener comments) are covered.
