Requiem for a Dream (what is the third rule???)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just watched this movie again (I originally saw it about a year after it came out) and it really is driving me crazy that they make a big deal of these three rules and never reveal the third. I'm sure it's on purpose and it's for the mother's POV that she didn't last long enough to even hear the third one. The first rule is no red meat. The second is no refined sugar. And then he says, "The third one is going to drive you crazy. You're not going to like it. The other two are easy compared to this." I just want to make sure I didn't miss anything.

 

Such an intense and depressing movie, but really artistically beautiful and well done.

Apparently the rules are briefly shown in writing when a character is watching an infomercial, and the third rule is "no orgasm." That's just what I got from Google; I haven't seen the movie.

What!? Why would no orgasm be a rule for improving your life/health? Thanks for telling me.

The rules are not the part of that movie I remember most.

I have no clue what this movie is about, but I just read an article last week or so about this group that believes you can improve your s*x life by never achieving the O.

Yeah, I know what you mean! lol

 

fruitful mom, that's pretty interesting. I can see how maybe holding off for a while to improve other areas could be a good thing but do they mean permanently?

Yeah, I think so...it is called Karezza. Seems like they believe o causes depression and should only be done if an accident or trying to get pregnant.
