Published on December 14, 2018

Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

For this special Sex Week edition, we reached around just a bit further than usual to round up recently-issued flicks, shows, books, and tunes that keep with the intoxicatingly erotic air around MERRY JANE at present. 

Streaming highlights include the Italian teen sex worker shocker Baby, as well as Cam, an out-of-nowhere horror hit centered on online sex. Next, the cult archivists at Vinegar Syndrome have issued collector’s editions of some lovably-bizarre ’70s hardcore favorites, The Sexorcist and Deviates in Love

Our hot books include Porn and Pong, a highly conscious examination of how video games shaped 21st Century sex, as well as Black Lace Drag, a republished vintage novel by Ed Wood (yes, the famously terrible movie director). Music pulsates pleasingly this week, ranging from the smooth seduction of Rico Love to the more hard-pumping gyrations and poundings of Black Girl/White Girl. So let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations. 


“Christiane Amanpour: Sex & Love Around the World”: Season 2
Watch It:

Over the course of Christiane Amanpour: Sex & Love Around the World, the legendary CNN reporter applies her investigative skills to the topics of the title in six major world cities: Tokyo, Delhi, Beirut, Berlin, Accra, and Shanghai. 

As a result, it’s a trip to lean in and learn about the state of human relations outside of typical erotic hotpots like Rio, Paris, Amsterdam, and Las Vegas. You may well wonder on occasion, though, how weed could further enhance the subjects’ goings-on, as many of the locations suffer under draconian drug laws. It’s okay, though — just go ahead and smoke extra for everybody on screen.
