Empire S2 Ep 10 - The SSL Review

Empire S2 Episode 10
Well, now I'm well into the 2nd season. Still a joy to watch. Obviously, I still love Cookie. Everyone does. You just can't not. Anyway, it's everything I would want in this kind of TV. About halfway through this season, to my great enjoyment, there was an SSL reviewable moment in an episode called "Et Tu, Brute?"

SSL Reviews
SSL Reviews are depiction or discussions of female orgasm and/or masturbation and/or the clit. Those are the specific things I review - other discussions or depictions of sex or sexuality not within the above confines are for the most part not of interest to me. In these reviews,  I critique the realism (for instance, were the physical things happening to that women while she orgasmed things that could realistically cause orgasm for a woman?) and also speak on what the depiction/discussion reflects from and adds to the larger cultural discussion around lady-gasms and female sexuality.

You can see all the SSL TV Reviews HERE (and as always you can find all the movie SSL Reviews HERE).

Mouth Love in an Elevator
 Let me set this scene for you now. It's at about 32 minutes in.
It starts as a bust shot of a woman (she's a board member of Empire named Edna). She's flat against the the wall of an elevator, looking up slightly with a particular type of smile. She lets out a pleasurable breath, as if she just finished having an orgasm. Within about a second or 2, the camera moves back a bit and Thirsty, an empire Lawyer pops up from below, wiping his mouth with a smile.
Thirsty: oh, that was good, right?
As she's fixing her hair and smoothing her skirt with a smile, Edna breathes out
Edna: yeah
Thirsty: So we got your vote, Edna?
Edna: Honey, it was good, but it wasn't ten-million-dollars good
 She heads over to the buttons to start the elevator casually.

Thirsty and Edna finishing up

My Thoughts

1. Hells yeah to this. Let me ask, thee? How might one give a woman a sexual favor? If you said eat her the fuck out with enthusiasm and a smile, you are correct. This show got that correct. I too often see depictions of men fucking a woman to give her a sexual favor, as if his stupid-ass dick is going to do some magical orgasm shit to her. It won't. I mean dicks are fine. They're even great in their way, but as fun as they may be, dicks in vaginas (or really any vaginal stimulation at all) do not orgasms make. Ladies need their clit stimulated, and frankly, if you're trying to do it in the very mostest way, nothing does it better than using your warm, soft, sucky, mouth. AmIright, my ladies?

2. The realism is on point here. Unless he was trying to stick his tongue in and out of her vagina hole like a dick during intercourse to get her off (sadly some out there have incorrectly assumed oral sex is done that way), then eating a lady out (again, in the proper mouth on clit area method) is definitely a way women can orgasm.

3. Bravo to Edna. She took hers and moved on with her life. She don't owe some dude anything just because he offers up 1 raggedy-ass orgasm. She's not gonna change her vote over that. Ms. Edna couldn't have said it better, "Honey, it was good, but it wasn't ten-million-dollars good." Hallelujah.

The SSL Review
It's realistic. They got it right on sexual favors to women, and Edna is a badass that can separate an orgasm and the other shit in her life. What more is there to say. This gets 5 out of 5 vulvas.
