(Newser) – Michelle Williams is pretty pleased with the oral sex scene that originally earned her film Blue Valentine an NC-17 rating. "I thought, 'I've never seen that before in a movie and I'm proud to be the first. Good on us for making that happen,’” she tells Reuters. “As the woman in the situation that was in question, I found absolutely nothing scandalous, tawdry or disgusting about it”—and when she saw the rating, which has since been reversed, “it shocked me. It felt like a slap on the hand." Click for more on the film's "messy," "toxic" sex scenes.

So explicit graphic violence is just fine and gets R rating but a blowjob is so fucking immoral... This 'moral' government should have been eradicated after Deep Throat.

Pretty stupid statement from this airhead. What the hell is there to proud of ? Blow jobs don't exactly take a lot of talent or accomplishment.
