S08.E20 Visual Aids: Beverly Hills, 90210 Visual Aids Dos and Don'ts

Did Donna actually have sex with Noah? I mean, I don't why I care but considering they kept Saint Donna a virgin for 217 years before finally "giving in" (barf) to David, are they then continuing the misogynistic melodrama by having her sleep with every new BF because, clearly, once someone has sex once they're now damaged goods obligated to put out on the reg (double barf).

I didn’t get a misogynistic vibe, and I think this is realistic in Donna’s case. Her whole virginity stance was largely due to her Catholic upbringing and parental expectations. Once she got over that (hypocritical) mental block, she was free to explore.

I think there is some throwaway line where David gets all mad that he "waited" for years (which meant cheating on her and then breaking up and dating everyone) while Noah gets to hop right in.  I am pleased a little that Donna seems to want to get to know Noah a little before they have sex.  

I'm a little squinked out how nowadays shows seem to go from first kiss to full on sex within seconds.  Like no foreplay, just a few kisses then pants are OFF.  Who does that?! (is this what the kids do now?)

Later, doesn't Donna have an affair with a fireman and Kelly says something about she (Kelly) only has had sex with people she's in love with.

The bolded isn't a new thing. I'm 43 and remember watching soap operas and nighttime soaps/dramas (Dallas, Falcon Crest, L.A. Law) when I was a kid and seeing actors do that. I remember being very confused as to why people who were paired together had their first kiss, and then immediately tore each other's clothes off and fell into bed. Cut scene. Fade in on afterglow with actors covered by a magic sheet.

I don't know if it was intended but after Donna finally gave it up to David , I noticed her character was much more bitchy all the time . That role used to just be Kelly's while Donna was labeled the Saint by the crew . 

Also , I get that her dad was in charge of the show ... but it was pretty laughable that every very hot guy was in love with Donna and found her to be so irresistible ( looking at you cliff ) .. ( and many others )

They had sex several episodes ago, which I know because I am a degenerate and made a gif for the Visual Aids.

I know David didn't wait to have sex with her like he said he did..He cheated on her and dated several other people.... but I do get why he was mad at Donna for moving on so quickly. She made a whole stink during the prior season to everyone about how much she loved David and how she knew he was the one... yet when they broke up, she moved on within seconds and got into another serious relationship. I know these things happen and David forged her check .. Instead of talking it out with the "love of her life", she just jumped in another guys bed asap. And then we we had to deal with her dating / fighting with Noah for the next 2.5 seasons and David moping around feeling sorry for himself. And nothing was worse than cousin Gina being added to the show.

Did anyone watch Marvel's Runaways? I really liked the first season, but when Gert and Chase hook up (granted, in a moment when they thought the world was about to end), I was shocked when they maybe had sex immediately? I mean, this is a semi-nerdy high school kid making first contact with her long-time crush, and what, they fuck? Still shaking my head at that one.

Oops, sorry, replied to the wrong thread. But yeah, teens going straight to sex is weird. Adults, less so.

I know we talked about it upthread, but what's wrong with folks just kissing and maybe making out a little, instead of kissing and then, sexy time?  I only watched a couple of episodes of Girls and was surprised to see how quickly they jumped into sex and how often it was so bad.  

The only thing good about Gina is Vanessa M.  That girl is gorgeous.  And, given what happens on the show, is a testament to how freaky genetics can be.

This rings true to me because that's how college and my 20s were. Bad sex especially. TMI.

I guess that's part of the "realness" of Girls.  It's better than the "afterglow" that you see on most soaps.
