Masters of Sex

Have you been watching the Masters of Sex drama on Channel 4?This is a highly amusing, sexually charged, educational and quite revealing series based on the ground breaking research carried out by Dr William Masters in the 1950s. At the time very little was known about human sexuality, which Masters identified as a great opportunity to learn more about this basic, but very enjoyable human function. The series is based on a book by Thomas Maier, chronicling the relationship between Masters and his assistant Virgina Johnson. In the first episode Masters is introduced via a conversation with a prostitute to the fact that women don’t always orgasm, that they sometimes fake it to please the man. What also becomes apparent is the lack experience of oral sex some people have, either through ignorance or social attitudes. Master’s own attitude towards his wife is also fairly shocking but also not unusual, some of the attitudes displayed do still prevail in society today.
