The film would lead to three sequels and is credited by many as the start of the "teen" subgenre of the sex comedy.Other sex comedies during this period include the first two Meatballs sequels, Screwballs, Revenge of the Nerds, Spring Break, Bachelor Party, and Hardbodies.
Although the ancient Greek theatre genre of the satyr play contained farcical sex, perhaps the best-known ancient comedy motivated by sexual gamesmanship is Aristophanes' Lysistrata (411 BC), in which the title character persuades the women of Greece to protest the Peloponnesian War by withholding sex.Judd Apatow's 2005 directorial debut The 40-Year-Old Virgin was credited by many as proof that the adult sex comedy was capable of not only providing laughs with raunchy humor, but providing its characters with depth and likability.The film follows Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) as he struggles with the pressures of reaching the age of 40 without ever having "done the deed." Although the film had the prerequisite sexual humor, the film was commended for its tender treatment of its characters and message.A lot of the film's humor stems from the attempts of Andy's co-workers to help him lose his virginity, but throughout the film it is made clear that they know just as little (or possibly less) than Andy about sex, relationships, and what can make a person happy.Comedians like Andrew Dice Clay, Robert Schimmel and Dave Attell have popularized sexual humour in stand-up.
In 1978, National Lampoon's Animal House success led to a string of raunchy gross-out and sex comedies in the late 1970s and early to mid 1980s.
