* TheUnfairSex: Paul and Jules have an affair. First, it's implied to be Nic's fault (who, as breadwinner, is apparently the "man" in the relationship) for not being attentive enough to Jules' needs. Then, when it's discovered, Jules is eventually forgiven while it now becomes all Paul's fault--he's shunned and treated like dirt by everyone, including Jules, who acts downright disgusted that he genuinely wants to be with her. The affair was wrong on all sides but Paul didn't deserve to have all of the blame dumped on him.

** {{Truth in television}} most girl on girl porn is done by a couple of straight girls obviously faking and doing it for GUYS attention
*** Not really. Most female porn stars tend to be at least [[http://www.examiner.com/article/female-porn-stars-more-likely-to-identify-as-bisexual-surprised bisexual]] if not completely homosexual, so most lesbian porn tends to be done by bisexual woman and not necessarily heterosexual woman.
