I'm sweating and I'm not even having sex!
Thursday, May 20, 2004

A few months ago there was this tread about all the problems that Firefly has. One that i kept seeing over and over and over and OVER again was in HoG that Mal and whats-her-face we're sweating too much during the sex scene. The arguments were that it was night time and so the temperature would drop and they wouldn't sweat. Besides it wasn't like they were banging that vigoursly anyway. I saw all this and didn't think to much about it.

Well, I'm here to set the record straight. I myself am a desert dweller. Last night i kicked all the blankets off the bed, turned on two fans, and took all my clothes off.

I was still sweating.

If, hypotheticly, i was having sex, I would be sweating A LOT.

So you see, desert temperatures don't drop that much at night and Joss is an artistic genious.

Just thought I should let you know.

Anyone who thinks you don't sweat like mad during really good sex. . .no matter WHAT the temperature. . .has NEVER HAD REALLY GOOD SEX!!!

If you think I'm wrong. . .ask my wife.

I'd like to submit a theory you seem to all have missed:

What if it was really, really GOOD sex?

I'm not talking about the "Mm, that was nice, you want to order Chinese Food?" variety, but rather the intense, eyes-are-locked, bodies-so-motionless-they-quiver, variety.

Here's a completely jaded woman, and someone has actually caught her eye. And here's Mal, who hasn't done this "in a really, really long while" ('Our Mrs. Reynolds').

All I'm sayin' is... when you get it on with the ONE for the first time, there's that nervousness, fear, anticipation... I'm pretty sure you sweat. I mean, I wouldn't know, bein' a virgin and all.

i suppose there are a number of factors to consider in this one. first off you have to wonder about the temperatures in this particular desert. the temperature flux between day and night may not be as drastic as in some deserts.

second off, you have to wonder how hot that house was (since it was covered in tin-foil and cling wrap to collect solar energy). that might keep heat inside longer than if they had the windows open and fans running.

third, how hot did she have the temperature set? my roommate is never happy with the temperature unless the cats begin hallucinating and the dinner cooks itself sitting out on the counter. it may be that she is of a similar opinion that she might, in fact, be cold blooded and dependant on external heat to maintain her circulation.

just some thoughts
