Changing Rules for Women and Sex on TV

This latest TV season brought us one woman impersonating an underage hooker in bed (Girls) and another woman smashing her date's head into a car window (Louis C.K.). These were not trashy housewives or the recently arrested on Cops but two Brooklyn girls. A third show features the sweet Jennifer Love Hewitt as an actual high class hooker (The Client List). These shows are exploring the age old questions of the double standard and female desire but in a much more edgy way. Meg Ryan's orgasm scene at the deli in When Harry Met Sally opened the door to honesty about what women do and don't do but now these shows are finally answering the question, what do women want, and can we really stomach watching it?
