You Say "The Prurience of Watching Hot Young Things Get it On" Like It Was A Bad Thing!

Encouraging. Becks likes the Superbad. Yet, in accordance with the Unfogged policy of never letting a moment go by without a clinical over-examination (o me j/k!), she poses the following question:

"What percentage of the enjoyment of teen movies do you think comes from nostalgia vs. schadenfreude vs. the purience of watching hot young things get it on?"
For me, the nostalgia and the schadenfreude go hand in hand. As to the whole prurience things, well, Becks, I think you've already answered this question yourself. C.f. "Today's Lesson."
