What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a versatile idea, encompassing all forms of amusement, although the term has often been skewed toward eroticism and sex. It can be a form of art for a single viewer, or it can be a banquet for two, or it can be an entire stadium full of people watching a performance. This is what makes it hard for us to define, but that’s also why the concept is so interesting.
