Female climax has moved beyond novelty to become part of the story on recent episodes of Mrs. Fletcher, Watchmen and See. "Sexuality on television is no major shakes these days. Honest, accurate portrayals of female pleasure," says Melanie McFarland, "are still enough of a novelty that when we see them depicted accurately, in their totality, and beyond the realm of premium cable, it’s worth noting." McFarland adds: "What makes these newest erotic instances a bit different than, for example, the 2017 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend musical number 'The Buzzing From the Bathroom,' is that the writers are attaching female sexuality to a context of female power, for good or ill. It’s not simply that we’re seeing female characters take charge of their own pleasure — or in Laurie’s case (from Watchmen), insinuate that getting it on with a dildo styled to remind her of her ex is just sort of how she rolls. It is that these interludes are a means of deepening the story." ALSO: Sex toy designers react to Watchmen's huge, cerulean-blue vibrator.
