The forbidden fruit that you can only get if you’re above 18… We’re talking about R-rated sex comedies, what were you thinking? Comedy films come in many forms — they could be family comedies that anyone can watch comfortably with anyone, then you have sports comedies and also rom-coms (romantic comedies) that you would probably watch with your partner. But then there’s this another type of comedies that make parents frown with disapproval — sex comedies.
So, if you’ve got a long weekend ahead and you’re in the mood for something light, funny and a little turning on, then a good sex comedy movie would do you some good.
