I love naked women

We watched The first season of the BBC comedy Coupling this weekend. Maura had never seen it, but I’ve seen the first two seasons. It is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen in my life. I started laughing at Blockbuster in anticipation of seeing it again. This is not the failed American attempt at the show, this it the original still being produced version. Anyway, in the fourth show of the first season “Inferno” Steve is asked to describe the story in the “erotic film” ” Lesbian Spank Inferno” during a dinner party. His girlfried had found it while tidying up his apartment. He begins by describing the film, but in a fit of frustration spouts off the following soliloquy that I found simply brilliant, and quite hilarious:

“I love naked women! I’m a bloke! I’m supposed to like them, we’re born like that! We like naked women as soon as we’re pulled out of one! Halfway out the birth canal we’re already enjoying the view! Look, it is the four pillars of the male heterosexual psyche – we like: naked women, stockings, lesbians, and Sean Connery best as James Bond because THAT is what being a boy is and if you don’t like it darling, join a film collective.

Look, I want to spend the rest of my life with the woman at the end of that table there, but that does not stop me from wanting to see several thousand more naked bottoms before I die, because that’s what being a bloke is. When man invented fire, he didn’t say ‘Hey, let’s cook!,’ he said, ‘Great! Now we can see naked bottoms in the dark!’ As soon as Gutenberg invented the printing press we were using it to make pictures of, hey!, naked bottoms! We’ve turned the internet into an enormous international database of naked bottoms. So, you see, the story of man’s achievements through the ages, feeble though it may have been, has been the story of our struggle to get a better look at your bottoms. Frankly girls, I’m not sure how insulted you really ought to be!”

I love this show, I can’t wait to watch the second season again, and then the third and fourth!
