>I pass a lot of time on the subway these days on my way to the sites that I am visiting off the beaten track for my book, so I've been reading a lot of magazines. (What I should be doing are crossword puzzles and reading my book for bookclub, but those pursuits are too intellectual for me these days. Sigh.) The blurb-y I read in New York Magazine about the new HBO show Tell Me You Love Me mentioned that it showed lots of graphic sex, including pubic hair.

Pubic hair! This is one daring show! The curlies on TV is far more shocking to me these days than graphic sex, which you can pretty much see anywhere.
