Vogue: Breathless: The Year in Sex

2015 will go down in history as the year when love won. But there were lots of other extraordinary advancements in the world of sex and relationships. Here, my list of 13 highlights, which includes the year’s sexiest movies, the best TED Talk on relationships, and the pop culture icons who are revolutionizing the way we think about sexual identity.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl is the best sexual coming-of-age story that I’ve seen in years. The film follows Minnie, a teenager who begins an affair with her mother’s boyfriend, Monroe, 20 years her senior. Rather than being a naive, easily manipulated sex object, Minnie is strong and decisive. Through her narrative, we enter her curious and sex-obsessed teenage mind. “I refuse to be a sniveling crybaby. I’m a fucking woman and this is my life,” says the irrepressible heroine. It’s rare to see a film that celebrates the complexity of female desire with such respect—it’s honest, but never exploitative, without ever making it seem “weird” that a teenage girl would be so horny. The film was the feature debut from Marielle Heller, and was a big hit on the festival circuit. Lead actress Bel Powley is captivating, and watching the sex scenes with sex god Alexander Skarsgård isn’t so bad, either.

It’s Limoversary Time Everyone!!

That’s right, the most sacred celebration of the year is upon us.:P Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf’s 8th Limoversary is November 7th!

As we all know, Blair loves her vintage films, Chuck loves clubs that echo other eras, they both love role playing classic literature and wish they’d lived in Paris in the 20s. So to commemorate this special day we’ve picked the theme: CLASSICS

We’re inviting fans to make Chuck and Blair arts of all types (e.g., gifsets, edits, graphics, videos, fanfiction, vines, etc) inspired by the classics. This could be a classic film, literature, music, art, historical eras, historical figures, mythology, theater, television, poetry, fashion, etc

Examples include Gone with the Wind , Les Liaisons Dangereuses , Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton , Frank Sinatra songs (as Ed once proposed) like I’ve Got You Under My Skin, quotes like “He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man” from The Great Gatsby, etc.

It can be a quote, a scene, a lyric, character, a couple, a style of clothing, etc anything that inspires you! Your only limit is that your cultural reference must be at least 10 years old.

As you may or may not know, Dreamworks Animation’s 20th anniversary is coming up on October 12th, 2014! And in those 20 years, Dreamworks has released 29 feature films.

So, in honor of Dreamworks Animation’s upcoming anniversary, I propose a 30 day challenge.

Starting on September 13th and continuing on until and including October 11th, make a gifset/edit/fanart/video/whatever each day of one of Dreamworks Animation’s 29 feature films.

Then, on October 12th, make any gifset/edit/fanart/video/whatever, celebrating Dreamworks’ 20th anniversary!

The list of animated features can be found on WIKIPEDIA and I’ve also made a post with each film matched up with the correct day, which you can find HERE. (Putting all that in this post would’ve made this way too long) Arbitrary bonus points if you do their tv/direct-to-video/specials/short films as well.

So reblog and spread the word! Starting September 13th (though we should be doing this every day), let’s show Dreamworks Animation just how much we love and appreciate all their hard work by flooding the dreamworks tags with love for their movies!
