    I didn't have anything to do with that vote... but perhaps it's because the question doesn't make much sense. The curtains and the waves are examples of an ellipsis... leaving something out (usually intentionally)... the paragraph goes on to explain why. It's not that the curtains themselves are sexy, it's that they're inserted immediately after actions that imply that sex is about to happen/is happening. This is a common trope in both film, TV and even in books. It's so common that it's likely we just know what it means and so your question makes no sense. – Catija Jul 13 '17 at 19:47
  • Please remember, when you ask questions, you need to do more than post one line of text and a huge quote box. Format your question in a way to be more explicit what you're trying to understand... explain what you need help with. Two sentences is rarely enough. – Catija Jul 13 '17 at 19:53
  • I seen this question, before; when did it turn into a wall of text? – Gnemlock Jul 16 '17 at 21:42

Currently, the wording isn't very clear on what you're asking. Are you asking WHY those two scenes were used? Are you asking about the history of such imagery in cinema to represent intercourse? Also, the quote you provided basically answers both of those questions, so it's confusing as to what you're really after.

  • I abridge the sentence in my post to try to simplify: 'Were the choices [...] to insinuate sex random [...]? If not, how can these physical acts be interpreted as erotic?' – AYX.CLDR Jul 15 '17 at 5:45
  • @Canada-Area51Proposal Explaining the question here is useless. You need to edit your actual question to make it clear. As long as it sits, unedited, it's never going to get reopened. – Catija Jul 15 '17 at 20:20
