In 1969 -- the dog days of the preternaturally long summer of love -- Dr. David Reuben released a slim volume titled Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask). The book became a must-have manual and is widely deemed responsible for altering attitudes and widening the scope of what was considered freaky fun in the Seventies. Another person who, um, changed the definition of typical sexual relations is the ever-nebbishy auteur Woody Allen. Inspired by the self-help tome, Allen spun Reubens advice into comedic gold that is even funnier today, thanks to the films vintage position, surreal sketches, and the directors highly controversial romantic life decisions. Allen reveals a knowledge about aphrodisiacs, orgasms, and sperm that most folks would rather not speculate about, but according to the hostess of tonights screening, famed local drag queen Shelley Novak, Mia Farrows ex needed help with his disappointingly limp homosexuality segment. Go figure. Learn Woodys perspectives on lust and get more modern advice from the queen who describes herself as Barney Rubble in a dress.
