THE TO DO LIST (2013): Teen Sex To Do List

The To Do List (2013) is about Brandy (Aubrey Plaza), a Boise, Idaho high school senior, who made a To Do List of sexual acts to experience before she matriculated at Georgetown University. 

Brandy made the to do list after being ridiculed for being a virgin by her classmates and her sister.  Interestingly, Brandy's sister lost her virginity when she was 14-years-old.

Among other sex acts, the list included: 
The to do list did not include anal sex; however, despite her father's warning, Brandy had anal sex in her Georgetown freshman dorm room. And inexplicably, via anal sex, she was able to check off orgasm.

In another scene, Wendy, Brandy's high school friend, said that a young boy, horsing around in the swimming pool, put his finger up her "ass."

I shared in The Allure of Nymphets that Cruel Intentions (1999) was the first film that I reviewed that mentioned teen anal sex between high school students. And that the Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center confirmed that anal sex is on the rise among teens. Thereby, once again, showing that art is (often) a reflection of (teen) society. 

Interestingly, the original title for the movie was The Hand Job and the Motion Picture Rating organization rated the film a R for "[...] pervasive strong crude and sexual content including graphic dialogue, drug and alcohol use, and language - all involving teens."
