    Google "rape by fraud" or "rape by deception."

    It's not her feelings that were fraudulent. If someone gets someone into bed using a fraud, that's "rape by fraud."

    I recently watched Saturday Night Fever, the original R rated version not the soon modified version I think I watched back in the day when I didn't pay much attention to it.

    There is no way they could make it today.

    Let's see, they beat up Hispanics, harass gays; Travolta's character who is (back then) the good guy tries to rape his dance partner and lets his friends gang bang his former dance partner.

    Except Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are a real-life couple and have been together for 37 years.

    Tropic Thunder, blackface and all...

    As hard as they tried to make American Pie funnier than Porky's, they still come up in second place.

    A tv show though - Bussom Buddies. Two dude cross dress to rent in a ladies only apartment.

    Back in the early '80s, I worked at a radio station's promotions department in Houston. Charlton Heston and his son along with our entire station staff were in our promotions room during his interviews and Q&A afterward. One of the questions asked Chuck was his thoughts on the possibility Hollywood's productions ever matching the or surpassing the large scale productions of the golden years such as Ben Hur. He told us that he couldn't ever see Hollywood even approaching those past productions due to budget restraints and other things I can't remember right now. I don't think Chuck foresaw CGI back then which changed everything which caused the sky to actually become the limit.

    (I remember shaking his hand and being being laughed at by everyone because I became speechless. After I composed myself, I asked him a question or two, and he answers humbly answered them. That night at the theater for the viewing of his movie, I got to sit right next to him.... just on the floor in the aisle, though. I was his temporary assistant at the theater, but my main role was to record interviews of the moviegoers. I've got his autograph somewhere.)

    Wow...what a fantastic experience! I would have never thought of Ben Hur, or any of the other epics he made, as not being able to be made today due to the cost and size of them. CGI would probably make it possible, but would it really do justice to classics like that. If I'd been there I wouldn't have laughed at you...I would have been speechless myself. :)
