Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Mermaids (1990)

Mary: He's an animal.
We had oral sex by the old railroad trestle.
I love it when they groooooan!
Mary in Mermaids, my new hero! (Seriously though how Dawn Davenport & Friends are those three?) I got to see this movie on the big screen this past weekend, I hadn't seen it in ages, and I realized watching this scene that when this movie came out in 1990 , much like Winona's character, was just learning about sex, and I had a vivid recollection of watching this scene at the time and thinking "oral sex" meant "kissing with tongue," lol.

Mermaids just hit blu-ray a couple of weeks ago, by the way - if you haven't watched it lately I recommend re-catching up with it; it's a product of its time for sure (up to and including the "women dancing around the kitchen table" scene) but a one hundred percent comforting one. Plus Michael Shoeffling!

Michael Schoeffling forever.

I really enjoyed this movie. I'm a fan if both Winona Ryder and Cher. The innocence of the times

Was just discussing this movie the other day after a Cher-themed Drag Race. The hubs expressed indifference. I plan to work on that!
