The famous horror trope goes like this: you have sex you die (thank you Randy Meeks). But sometimes sex isn’t your choice, and the uncontrollable fear that you experience after the trauma will haunt you for the rest of your life… how doe final girls handle it? This week, the Cadaver Dogs dive into the repercussions of sex and sexual trauma with TEETH (2007) and IT FOLLOWS (2014).
Devin, David, and Rob cover the irresponsibility of victim blaming, the evolution of rape culture, and sexual education in the new millenium. We even jump back in time to the origins of Medusa – how messed up is that Greek myth? We also digress into our own sex educations and disillusionments of adulthood.
**CONTENT WARNING** This episode contains discussions about rape and sexual assault.
