A tenement is a type of building shared by multiple dwellings, typically with flats or apartments on each floor and with shared entrance stairway access, on the British Isles notably common in Scotland. In the medieval Old Town , in Edinburgh , tenements were developed with each apartment treated as a separate house, built on top of each other such as Gladstone's Land. Over hundreds of years, custom grew to become law concerning maintenance and repairs, as first formally discussed in Stair 's writings on Scots property law. Tenements with one or two room flats provided popular rented accommodation for workers, but in some inner-city areas, overcrowding and maintenance problems led to slums , which have been cleared and redeveloped. In more affluent areas, tenement flats form spacious privately owned houses, some with up to six bedrooms, which continue to be desirable properties.

Moviegoers expecting to be titillated were taken aback by this drama's raw, taboo-breaking examination of misogyny and dysfunctional relationships. The prurient title of this raw, profanity-laden, taboo-breaking Mike Nichols film with a script by satirist and cartoonist Jules Feiffer , meaning 'sexual intercourse,' brought millions of patrons into the theatres for its character-based tale of the exploits and sexual encounters of two Amherst college roommates:. This striking film with adult subject matter told of their dysfunctional, misogynistic sexual attitudes and 'machismo' relationships and breakups with women over a year period from the lates to the late 60s. It illustrated their fragile male egos and bravado, as it further pushed the boundaries of sex in cinema and challenged the ratings system and the general morals of the time - although the film had little in the way of explicit sex. A film print was seized by Albany, Georgia officials in , claiming that it violated obscenity laws, and the manager of the film theatre was arrested and convicted, but it was later overturned. It was brought as a major case before the US Supreme Court, which found in that the film was not obscene and "did not depict sexual conduct in a patently offensive way. Nowadays, the film would be considered tame, with its minor amount of nudity or explicit sexual activity, although its dialogue was ripe, candidly frank and open for its time.
