    In the Realm of the Senses

    ★★★

    I expected the sex, but like many reviewers I never expected that much sex. It's truly relentless; there are more sex scenes than there are scenes with fully clothed characters. It makes any other inclusion of nudity in tv and films seem like nothing whatsoever.

You really get a sense of each artist and the preparation for what they bring to the stage. A must-see for any fan of drag.

    Now, roughly 5 years later, I re-visited it. I was scared that it would not resonate with me this time around. I'm a different person than…
