Judging by that clip, nope! In M&J, all the experiments are done in a lab. In the beginning, Master's one subject was a prostitute. Later, the experiments were done at a whore cat house. The studies were flawed until he was allowed to set up shop at the hospital he worked at.
The test subjects are hooked up to machines while doing various sexual acts. Very clinical & sometimes right down funny.
Sterne's Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy begins with the moment of Tristram's conception, which is less than ideal because at the moment that his soon to be father is about to ejaculate, Tristram's soon to be mother, no doubt bored by the exercise of physical commerce, asks, "Pray, my dear, have you not forgot to wind up the clock?" To which Mr. Shandy replies, "Great G——! Did ever woman, since the creation of the world, interrupt a man with such a silly question?" And so Tristram is engendered when his father's spirits were not fully attentive to what he was in process of doing.
Tristram, who narrates his own begetting, coming of age (including the unfortunate incident of his circumcision by falling window pane), adulthood, and grand tour of the Continent, is particularly interested in the circumstances of how his parents disported themselves at that moment because he has a theory that "his genius and the very cast of his mind" is determined by "the animal spirits and how they are transfused from father to son."
The novel proceeds by indirections and digressions, so for the next 250 pages or so, Tristram tells us all about why it was that his mother asked that question, why it was that his father could have forgotten about winding up the clock, why it was that his father wanted to have a moment of coition on that occasion, where he had been before that evening, why he'd been there, what the arrangements were for the marriage of his parents, . . . .
It's a difficult novel, but I love it.
