Episode #9×40: The Hunger Games and Pop Culture Stage Adaptations, Teens Don’t Like Sex on Screen, Vibrator or Vacuum?

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk!
  • Buckle up for a slightly unhinged ep – in a historic moment for the show, we recorded this one in the MORNING!
  • Andrew and Pat are the “cool” Halloween neighbors between throwing sexy parties and giving out full size candy bars.
  • Get ready for more adaptations: ‘The Hunger Games’ is set to get the stage play treatment. (Real talk, does anyone want to feel immersed in the Panem environment?)
  • ‘Spongebob the Musical’ ran so that Ethan Samuel Slater could throw his family away for Ariana Grande.
  • Is ‘Hunger Games’ trying to pull a ‘Harry Potter’ by continuing to expand the universe?
  • A new study out of UCLA indicates that teens are looking to see less sex depicted on screen. Were we just way hornier as teens, or is there something more to this?
  • How have depictions of sex in popular media changed since we were kids?
  • The introduction of intimacy coordinators on set has had a noticeable impact on the nature of sex scenes depicted in tv and film.
  • A confessional prompts us to have a spicy conversation in After Dark: “Can my neighbor hear me using my vibrator through the walls?”
  • There is no common thread in this week’s recommendations: Yeti Nano microphone (Laura), Rollo Thermal Printer (Andrew), and investing in an electric fabric shaver to keep your sweaters looking fresh this fall (Pam).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark:

  • As promised in the main show, we’re getting personal about getting down when you live in connected or shared spaces with neighbors and family.
  • Tips for keeping things discreet if you’re at home or in a dorm…
  • Vibrator recommendations!
