Creepy Heinlein, Creepy Kubrick

I’ve finally gotten around to reading Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange World". It reminds me very much of Kubrick’s "Eyes Wide Shut" in that I find myself squirming uncomfortably as I'm exposed (and exposed...and exposed) to the embarrassingly moldy and phenomenally unsexy sexual fantasies of some guy from a bygone era who I otherwise respect very much.

It's like hearing your parents disclose their boudoir secrets. Way, way too much information.
