Sexuality in Horror Movies
Note from Timaree: this is a repost of a column originally posted for Halloween 2011. If there is a genre of film that has more sexuality in it than porn, it’s definitely horror. Aside from the slasher genre’s penchant for showing boobies and the movie rule that only virgins can survive a serial killing maniac, you’ve also got the deeper meaning. Often our biggest fears are symbolic of sexuality: from everything to vampires (even those damn glittery ones) to witches, there is a world of sex.
Enter horror film buff, sexuality educator, teaching artist, and Queen of Halloween, Shanna, who sits down with Dr. Timaree to discuss sexuality in horror movies.
