From sublime to ridiculous A Bigger Splash 124mins 15 THIS steamy tale of sexual tension and erotic brinkmanship positively sizzles before fizzling out in the last act.
On-screen sexual tension with Schoenaerts barely simmers, while McCrory vamps it up to the hilt as the wicked wench who envies Sabine's ability to impress powerful men with her intellect.
EastEnd Cabaret: Sexual Tension, Topside (Underbelly Bristo Square) 8-9pm until August 25 (not 11), www.underbelly.co.uk
I wonder, for example, whether Rauschenberg's Pelican, 1965, a performance with roller skates and parachutes, might have had an absurdist quality masked by Moore's chiaroscuro photos of the gliding dance; or whether that Cage performance, in which a half-nude Paik held a wire along his back so that Moorman could play him like a cello, might have had a giggly sexual tension that the photograph makes tender and sober.
Of the 18 most important variables identified in this analysis, six reflected emotional responses to sex, seven pertained to reasons for having sex (e.g., to get back at someone, to express love or intimacy, or to relieve sexual tension) and five reflected risk-related behavior (e.g., using condoms inconsistently, initiating intercourse at an early age or having multiple partners).

In Leroy Ladurie's Montaillou, the priest Pierre Clergue began his successful seduction of the noble woman Beatrice de Planissoles during confession, and Haliczer follows Thomas Tentler in emphasizing the sexual tension that was broadly recognized to be part of the danger/attraction of the rite of confession during the Middle Ages, when, it is worth noting, the rite was still being performed one on one in isolated areas of churches.
She "dates" a slew of men, but the real sexual tension on this show is between her and her married boss, Lou Grant.
Moving beyond these fundamentally realistic forms, the fourth form - the "collective novel" - is a specifically proletarian form, one shaped in large part by racial and sexual tension. Emphasizing the problem of articulating a vision of change in relation to a world suffused with false consciousness, Foley describes the uses of forms (anticipated by Native Son) in which writers incorporate voices reflecting the various ideologies competing in the characters' minds.
Frankly I've seen more sexual tension between Julian Clary and a water vole in Nature's Nuts than between husband-and-wife spy duo David Walliams and Call the Midwife's Jessica Raine.
