  • Allusions

    • When Julianne asks Erica to suggest possible titles for her sex book, Erica suggests Let's Talk About Sex. While she may have been alluding to the controversial 1991 hit single by Salt-n-Pepa, an even more likely allusion is to the 1998 film of the same name directed by Troy Beyer. After her film was all-but-banned in the U.S. by being given an NC-17 rating from the MPAA (although it was shown uncut in other parts of the world), Beyer said that she felt "violated" artistically - obviously a concern of Erica's.
