The Basic Instinct banner inspired me to ask about Racy entertainment this week.

What racy movies, TV shows, comics, whatever from the 80s and 90s do you remember fondly.

Did you watch Silk Stockings?

Did you watch "Species" over and over again? Or Maybe you preferred "Body Heat"

I know I've never forgotten Bo Derek in "10" or Phoebe Cates from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Or maybe you're more of a romantic. \:\)

Just remember that we have to keep this family friendly so no gory details.

I saw Fast Times in the theater when I was 12, so you know that left an impression!

Species was a great movie, mostly because of Natasha Henstridge. I don't think I've seen it since that first viewing, though. 

Body Double was certainly thrilling in those early days of cable TV.

The Blue Lagoon created quite a stir.  Brooke Shields was only 14!

I remember sneaking peaks of Electric Blue on cable.  Wikipedia says it was a UK show on the Playboy channel, but I know we didn't have that channel.  Maybe that was one of those shows you could watch if you set the dial in between channels 2 and 3?  Or a "paper clip to the back of cable box show"?  I doubt the latter because I remember not knowing about that trick until the later 80's when there were so many great boxing pay-per-views.

For me, it was into The Night. Michelle Pfeiffer became an instant crush for me when I saw her in this film. And yeah, it was rated "R" for a reason. \:\)

You knew that trick too?! When I was a kid I used to use that trick to watch playboy at my Grandma's summer place.

Too bad TVs don't have dials anymore.

Lol. Yeah. I don't remember how I figured it out. There'd be a big squiggly line down the middle of the picture, but you could often see boobs.

I never saw most of the movies you guys are talking about. Species was a good/bad deal. Good SciFi premise that turns into an exploitation film. Or maybe it's just exploitation through and through with some SciFi as window dressing. I kind of liked Species II better because it didn't pretend to be anything but junk. Lots more gore, lots more nudity, lots of decent actors who were just there for the paycheck.

An early influence was Heavy Metal. Yes it's juvenile teen boy fantasy stuff but that's what I liked. I still kind if like it. Great soundtrack. I must have been 10 when I saw this thing.

I personally think in lieu of "the talk" my Dad just rented us the Porky's movies. Not seductive or erotic just potty humor and T&A. Which is perfectly fine entertainment when you're 12 or whatever.

I remember my parents having a disagreement about one of the Police Academy movies, 1 or 2. Mom was against us seeing it because it was PG-13 and we were only 11 or 12. He thought "it'll be good for them." Dirty jokes and a few boobs.

I never learned a cable box trick. But we never had cable until I was in college. Before that it was just the three channels we got over the air.

Certainly Phoebe Cates in Fast Times stuck with me. There was cheese like Fathom and Danger Girl. Striptease with Demi Moore left quite an impression.

Exactly!

Who knows how I figured it out? Maybe just fooling around with the thing. Or maybe someone told me about the trick at summer camp.

I can't find anything about a Danger Girl movie. Looks like they are currently making a movie about it though.

The movie is definitely a little out there, meaning Jeff Goldblum is the ideal leading man for the film. David Bowie plays a hitman, for example. And a host of movie directors make cameos throughout the film, like the director John Landis himself, as well as David Cronenberg and Jim Henson.

Safe for work and children - but definitely racey!
