With titillating exhibits comparable to “Taxicab Confessions” and “Cathouse,” Cinemax was as soon as the very best place for channel-surfing horndogs to get a late-night nudity repair. Not.
With scores deflated by a rising abundance of free web porn, dad or mum community HBO introduced this week that its days of disseminating soft-core erotica are executed.
“Over the previous a number of years, HBO has been winding down its late-night grownup fare. Whereas we’re tremendously ramping up our different authentic program choices, there hasn’t been a robust demand for this type of grownup programming, maybe as a result of it’s simply out there elsewhere,” the community stated in a press release to the Hollywood Reporter.
However, the information left self-abusers throughout social media pulling up their pants with tears of their eyes as they expressed nostalgia for his or her boob-tube salad days:
“@HBO purged all Grownup content material. Lame and silly,” fumed one fan on Twitter. “HBO shouldn’t be HBO with out late-night content material. After @GameOfThrones is over, what else, @sesamestreet? Simply lame.”
One viewer in Florida tweeted that the channel’s racy programming outlined his adolescence: “When a film on @Cinemax says nudity, it jogs my memory of my childhood . . . #nostalgia #skinemax #80s.”
However as Philadelphia comic Patric Ciervo identified, HBO’s status applications aren’t precisely hurting for full-frontal motion: “Now if you wish to see nudity on HBO your solely selections are Westworld, Recreation of Thrones, The Deuce, Sopranos, Intercourse and the Metropolis, Hung, Oz, Huge Love and the occasional racy episode of Final Week Tonight. #HBO #nudity”
