While we're thrilled women's sexuality has entered mainstream media, sometimes we'd prefer it without a side of "Did I sleep with him too soon?" and "Will he think I'm slutty if..." Thankfully, Heather Graham agrees with us -- and wants to do something about it.
Recently cast as "a ridiculous f*cking MILF" in "Californication," the Showtime series that undoubtedly appeals to "a guy's fantasy," Graham wants to flip the script on women and sex in film. How? By literally writing a script.
"[The movie business is] totally sexist," she told Esquire's Eric Spitznagel. "If you look at all the movies being made these days, 80 percent of them are about men. And when you don't see the kind of stories out there that represent you, you have to make them yourself."
Graham described her vision for a type of film in which women celebrate their own sexuality:
I don't see anything in film about women who want to have sex. I don't see myself and my friends represented. When do you ever get to see a movie from the point of view of a woman who's more interested in having really great orgasms than finding a husband? I would say almost never.
Graham's screenplay, which she is currently in the process of casting and hopes to shoot this summer, was inspired by a book called "Extended Massive Orgasm" that "looks at sex in terms of what gets a woman off, as opposed to what gets a man off." We'll take that over the next Nicholas Sparks adaptation any day.
