House M.D. (TV series 2004? )
Occam’s Razor (TV episode 2004 #1.3):

Dr. Cameron: [messing with Chase’s head] Sex *could* kill you. Do you know what the human body goes through when you have sex? Pupils dilate, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets, respiration becomes rapid and shallow, the brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere, and secretions spit out of every gland, and the muscles tense and spasm like you’re lifting three times your body weight. It’s violent. It’s ugly. And it’s messy. And if God hadn’t made it *unbelievably* fun, the human race would have died out eons ago. Men are lucky they can only have one orgasm. You know that women can have an hour long orgasm?

Istanbul is under heavy rains and since it is also the official holiday due to Republic Day, I stay at home, watch and read. Two lovable acts. I would have added some other lovable acts, but I have to satisfy myself with two now:) I am a bit late comer in watching House MD. and I quote from one of the very episodes…

Turkish flotilla ship becomes setting for anti-Israel movie

from Hurriyet Dailynews
A Turkish protest ship that was the scene of bloodshed during Israel’s deadly May 31 raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla has now become the setting of an anti-Israeli film.

It’s a poster for a Danish movie. A mainstream movie, made by some TV comedians. The poster is meant to look like Antichrist and probably doesn’t really have much to do with the content.
