I love watching movies and TV shows and I watch a lot of stuff on Netflix. So when I came across a show with the name Strange sex, I had to wonder what was so strange about sex? In the description for the show it said something about the content of this show may seem funny. But these are things that these people have to deal with. It had me wondering if they were going to be talking about people who want to have sex with trees or masturbate with broken glass. Was there going to be someone who used frogs for sex toys?
Well first I looked at the titles for the episodes and didn’t really see anything that alarming. So eventually I decided to watch it. The first show was about Cougars. I learned something new about them. That is that the guys the girls go for are called cubs. I thought that was interesting since gay hairy men are called bears. Their lovers are also called cubs. I wouldn’t know that if it weren’t for listening to Kevin Smith's podcast. But the interesting thing was the guy they interviewed for their example talked about why he liked older women, and I think the main reasons were that older women weren’t looking to get married, they weren’t looking to have kids and they are financially stable. When they interviewed the older woman who this guy went out with in the episode, she disproved one of the ideas this guy had. She said she did want to get married and as I recall even hoped this guy might be the one. She also understood that most of the guys were looking for sex and that was ok because she was too. I think it’s kind of interesting that they suggested that one of the reasons guys go for cougars is because of the oedipal complex. Basically this is a boys desire to fuck his mother taken out by fucking an older woman. I am sure this could be the case for some. But I think to apply it to all is absurd.
Honestly I didn’t see that much that I really thought was strange. I did think it was interesting to see a group in a polyamory relationship. It was interesting to see the dynamic of how that actually worked for them. What I was taught growing up and even in school is that this kind of thing does not work. But evidently from this show and at least one person I have met on the internet, I have seen it can work. I do think it takes certain circumstances for the people looking to get into this to make it work without too much conflict. Obviously a certain amount of conflict is to be expected in any relationship. One conflict that arose in the one on the show was the girl wanted to have a baby. She had chosen who she wanted to get her pregnant and he wasn’t sure about it. So when he was unwilling at the time she found a guy who was willing. I don’t even think the one who got her knocked up even lived with them. The one guy was mad but decided he would rather have the girl and the child in his life instead of losing them.
The most entertaining and I guess strangest episode was one about people with a sexual attraction for balloons. It was kind of funny to watch as this guy blew up a balloon until it popped and to see the look of exhilaration rush over his body and to see how happy he was from doing that. The reason that one struck me as funny is I don’t feel anything like that when I blow up a balloon. When it gets to the point that I think it’s getting too full, I feel more anxiety than anything else. I don’t like the popping noise and I hate even more when sometimes the rubber snaps on my finger or face. It was kind of cool that he was able to find a group of people who had a balloon fetish like he did. He finally had a group he fit in with.
One of the dumbest episodes was one where a guy chose to be a virgin. I’m not saying it’s dumb because he chose to be a virgin, but because his friends didn’t seem to respect his choice. He wasn’t an ugly guy either or at least not that I could tell. If you have seen the show, then give your own opinion. I think it’s stupid that he is almost treated like a leper because he wants to wait until he’s married to have sex. Also seems odd to have a guy who hasn’t had sex on a show called strange sex. Hahaha
Another dumb one was about a guy who I guess is in the record books for having the biggest dick. It’s kind of silly that one of his friends thinks that if he got into the porn industry that he would be a big star. I don’t think that is really true though. What if he could act well enough to even get cast for a porn scene? Would he then only be a stunt cock? I don’t really know how well that would work out. He talked about his love life some and said when he has sex he doesn’t just go to town because it will hurt the girl. I think he also had problems with girls respecting him because of him have a big dick. I guess it’s kind of like they look at him as kind of a joke.
There was an unfortunate story of a guy who hurt himself in some way that caused him to have an erection for I think 6 days before he was able to get treatment for it. That had to be really painful. There was the story of a girl who from a young age dressed in boy’s clothes and identified more with being a boy than a girl. She, now a he, has a girlfriend who commented on a surgery he was getting to become more of a man which was to have a penis made. Her comment was how often do you get to choose the size of your boyfriend’s penis? That makes me wonder if the relationship will really last. I hope it does because of what they have been through so far together.
This show covered various topics and I would suggest that anyone of age watch this show. I think it is interesting and to a point informative. Because the “experts” probably aren’t people that live these lifestyles, they probably have a lot of misgivings about the topics. But I think it is worth watching to hear from the people they talk to who live the lifestyles. Take the doctors ideas with a grain of salt. Some might be right. But only the actual people know for sure.
