The Loneliness of COVID Cinematography

Post-Nut Clarity: The Hard Truth

By Madeline Perez   As you know, here at the Binghamton Review, we abstain from “nutting” and its implications, but with No-Nut November coming up, we thought a related article would be appropriate. So we put in the hard work for you. As a human past the age of 14, chances are you’ve heard of post-nut clarity or maybe even experienced it for yourself. Some of you probably just passed it off as a joke…
