Several weeks ago I was asked if I would be interested in checking out this DVD series and talking about it a bit. I'm always up for a bit of education, so I agreed to give it a try. I expected something along the lines of what I've reviewed before in the Nina Hartley series and was pleasantly surprised with what I received.
This series was originally shown on British television and shows the "relationship experts" Em & Lo doing a series on Sex. (I confess, I've never heard of them, but they were fun. I want to spend a day shopping, dancing and having a slumber party with them now).
There are 10 episodes on 3 DVDs featuring a range of "how to's"
Below is a mini clip of a bit of episode one on oral. This woman showing the girls techniques is le fab. She instructed them on how to do this sassy little crawl/slink up the
Each episode covers a range of techniques, interviews, a fun "confession booth" bit and roving reporters who try out a range of toys and workshops etc and give honest feedback. It's actually a really well-rounded and fascinating series. But the best part? It's fun and light. It doesn't get preachy or heavy, nor does it get too "sexy" or unrealistic. It's just real people talking about all aspects of sex.
One thing I learned? Apparently it is possible for men to give themselves blow jobs. Until they actually showed a real live guy doing it, I never would have believed anyone could be that flexible. Take up some yoga guys - you CAN do it!
Here's a run down of the episodes:

There was an awesome section that showed an artist who does vagina casting. I was amazed at the range and beauty of them all. I have to confess, though I've even been to "The Vagina Monologues" I've never really thought about them that way. They truly are all unique and it's a fascinating project.
I would definitely say that this is worth the investment if you're curious about any aspect of sexuality. For the sake of getting this review done expeditiously (it's already been weeks!) I confess I haven't seen every episode yet. But this is one that I definitely want to finish - it's really been a great ride.
