Stop Putting Sex Scenes in My Sci-Fi

Stop Putting Sex Scenes in My Sci-Fi



Buzz Megachip, readied his phaser, peaked around the corner of the Martaplex employee lounge and found Sarah Bimbolucious.  For the next 5 minutes of the movie a sex scene ensues.  Now for the average non-sci-fi noob, this would seem like a normal scene.  Gotta have a sex scene in a "movie".  That might be true, except the "movie" is called "Buzz Megachip and the 3rd Quadrant", a pure nerd-fest sci-fi flick.  The people that would be attracted to this movie are disgusted at the complete unnecessary scene that is in them. 

Now, let us go over why it is a bad thing to have porn in a sci-fi.
  1. it has been shown time and again, that sex scenes in certain film genres, are unnecessary
  2. you have to pay extra for the "sex" scene
  3. you then have to get people to write the "sex" scene
  4. people who write "sex" scenes are not super nerd friendly sci-fi screen writers
  5. there is little to no sci-fi story
  6. the studio is concerned with putting butts into the seats and not nerd butts into audience seats
  7. instead of pandering to the very crowd that made a particular series popular, they try to reach for a larger audience that has never even heard of Buzz Megachip, and usually alienates the very people that made the particular title popular
Yes that means that Buzz Megachip is completely short changed on the entire sci-fi story.  All these riveting "that was not cannon Buzz Megachip storyline" conversations and nerd arguments are not going to take place, after watching the movie.

Of course there is no Buzz Megachip, but this applies to all sci-fi.  In an effort to get everyone to see a movie, hollywood studios try to pander to everyone's interests.  This is the very same argument against being politically correct.  Instead of actually defining something, they make it so general that noone likes it, or worse, everyone hates it.
