So you know how "affair with the ground" is a meditation on the ways in which marriage, sex, and reproduction are connected? And you know how "affair with the ground" uses "marriage" to cover, like, every reproductive and quasi-reproductive interaction, even when it's absolutely nothing like what you or I might think of as marriage, out of respect for the sensibilities of a notional child audience?
This is like that, except that instead of "marriage," the word of the day is "fucking." Other tonal attributes have been shifted accordingly. Strap in; it's a wild ride.
