Showtime Masters Of Sex - 10/20/13 08:11 PM

Caught up with it today because Showtime did a mini marathon. Pretty good so far. A lot of soft porn but it's done in good taste. smirk
How Masters first started his research and how he first got interested in it is very interesting. Especially all the characters back stories.

Johnson died in July of this year at the age of 88.


Anybody else watching?

I have certainly heard of him. One half of Masters and Johnson right? Sounds fascinating. Wonder if it'll ever make it to Japan, or if I would have to go searching myself.

Yes.
I remember seeing their book Human Sexual Response when I was teenager at the local library. The book was in the "reproductive & sex" section. From what I can remember, the book had these black & white pictures & drawings. I was with my best friend at the time. We were like, ewwwwwwwwww. shocked

The pilot you can watch on http://www.sho.com/sho/video/full-episodes.
Also, try the Sidereel website. They may have the full season.

Despite I might turn folks off, I like it. It's pleasant with most characters like able .which is a change from the show that precedes it. Masters even showed his human side this last episode.

And excluding the first episode when I checked these guys out to find in real life they set up their own institute and married each other, I'm not concerned with the historical part. Just treating it as fiction.

Oh, I forgot. There is one distasteful character. Johnson's ex husband is a lout.

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.

It's a cute show. I like it. Got all the big issue topics included. Sex, gays, abortion, adultery , bribery., domestic abuse. Women's issues. Haven't seen anything about guns yet, tho

Masters is a neat character. Johnson is the bomb.

I haven looked too close if it even remotely follows the real history of the two. Except to see that they do get married and set up their own medical research institute.

Don't plan to. Just enjoy the romp
