Khloé Kardashian has found the magic formula for a solid hour of Wednesday night televised programming. Her new show Kocktails With Khloé is equal parts ridiculous, heartwarming, and cheeky. The premise is simple: Khloé and her chef/bartender Sharone serve a special cocktail to a group of famous friends and influencers while talking and playing games. You know, things you do with your friends—only this happy hour is broadcast to millions.
Each episode of late has gotten progressively sexier. Last week was all about porn habits; this week was all about sex. Maybe it's Khloé's no-holds-barred approach to life, maybe it's the cocktails, but she somehow gets all these people to talk about very intimate parts of their life. Last night, both Cassie and Khloé revealed that they've had sex in the back of a limo. "It's never happened?" Cassie said at one point to the folks that didn't say they had—like it's some everyday place to knock boots.
Later on, Cassie announced she loves to get it on. Sharone talked about once having sex with a woman he had just met in the hotel lobby bathroom. Khloé then went into detail about joining the Mile High Club.
On the surface level, this kind of talk can seem shallow. On a deeper level, though, these are the kinds of conversations that were once too taboo for television. Shows like Sex and the City helped demystify and un-demonize talking about sex, butt play, masturbation, and porn consumption—especially when it came to seeing women talk about it. Khloé Kardashian is doing the same, only on network TV as opposed to HBO. The brilliance of this show is how nonchalant its approach to sex-positive talk is. It's honest and provocative without being obsequious about it. Can we get a kocktail to cheers to that?
