You know how it is — when you’re with Seth Rogen, all it takes is 90 seconds to experience total bliss.
No shade to Rogen, a sex symbol and comedy icon in anyone’s book, but sex therapists agree that between foreplay and penetrative sex women typically take 10-20 minutes to climax, and that most women do not climax through penetrative sex at all.
So, women are asking, why does the new Seth Rogen movie “Long Shot,” out May 3, show Charlize Theron climaxing after ninety seconds of intercourse? The idea is, to put it gently, a long shot.
did the Feminist Rom Com Movie last night have a scene in which a woman orgasms after like 90 seconds of penetrative sex and no other foreplay or stimulation, or was that just a terrible dream I had— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) March 11, 2019
Angie Han, Mashable’s Entertainment Editor, called out a scene in the upcoming romantic comedy in which Charlize Theron’s character has an orgasm during sex with Seth Rogen’s character after just ninety seconds. Rogen, who produced and stars in “Long Shot,” which was directed by Jonathan Levine, responded directly to Han’s tweet. Apparently, the grossly misleading scene is all Theron’s fault.
Believe me, I had my doubts and Charlize demanded it was possible much to the shock of myself and director. We went with her suggestion.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) March 11, 2019
Ah yes, the tyranny of women’s voices has ruined many a golden work of art like this one. And for that, they must be blamed. Nevertheless, a reporter for Vulture interviewed New York City women about whether or not the Rogen-Theron sex scene is probable, possible, or even desirable.
The response was resounding laughter.
Oh, men! The more you partner with women to put new ideas into the world, the less we will laugh in your faces.
