Best Cable Series Title Ever: TLC’s ‘Strange Sex’

The release sort of speaks for itself — although I can’t wait for the cross-over episode with “Cake Boss” and “Say Yes to the Dress.”

TLC EXPLORES UNCONVENTIONAL BEDROOM BEHAVIOR WITH NEW SERIES “STRANGE SEX”

“Strange Sex” Premieres on July 18 at 10 PM ET/PT

(New York, NY) – On Sunday, July 18 at 10 and 10:30 PM ET/PT, TLC premieres two back-to-back episodes of STRANGE SEX, a six-part series exploring all things sex. From an Iraq war veteran who only experiences pain during intercourse to a former Broadway star and sex educator who learned to “think” herself into having an orgasm, STRANGE SEX profiles mysterious conditions, unusual fetishes and the kinky science behind sexual attraction. With first hand accounts and commentary from medical professionals, each half-hour episode sends viewers on an unrestricted journey into an entirely new world of sex.

As of 2003, 34% of women in the U.S. over the age of 40 are dating younger men. The premiere episode of STRANGE SEX follows 73-year-old Hattie as she searches for sex, love and a life mate in bustling Manhattan. No stranger to romance, Hattie has been dating men in their 30s for over a quarter of a century. Enter Ron, a 33-year-old single father of two who’s always dated older women.  Despite their staggering age difference, the two have decided to go out on a date. Will Hattie and Ron hit it off?

Throughout the series, STRANGE SEX highlights some of the most atypical sexual encounters, including a man who has a balloon fetish, a woman who tries to have an orgasm during childbirth for the second time, and a couple who welcomes another man into their relationship, sex life, and home. STRANGE SEX also features a candid interview with former Skid Row drummer Phil Varone. As a recovering sex addict who is fresh out of rehab, Varone is finally trying to leave his past behind to start fresh with a new girlfriend.

STRANGE SEX is produced by Sirens Media for TLC.
