No More Privacy: Sex Is Everywhere!

Each one-hour episode of Original Sin: Sex will provide a different angle of how sex has penetrated the very fabric of our society. Viewers will think of sex in a way that they never have before, such as how its pervasive presence has crept into every facet of everyday life — from television, popular culture, and social media to politics, science, and technology. Original Sin: Sex will also explore how the internet has ripped the covers off of sex and privacy by making it so easily accessible to young people while making it difficult for parents to monitor them.

Cars And Sex: A Revolution

In the episode “Hi-Tech Sex,” learn how the automobile provided a new way for teens to explore sex like never before; referring specifically to the 1950s, when transportation meant that teens no longer had to be supervised while dating.

Instead, they had “sex on wheels,” a party car where all sorts of things went on sexually. Providing a means of escape and freedom, transportation in the 1950s and 1960s became a rolling hotel, a cheap and exciting playhouse for teens that allowed sex to flourish without their parents watching or even really knowing what was going on.

Original Sin: Sex And The Vibrator

Original Sin: Sex will also delve into how the vibrator supposedly helped Victorian women achieve orgasm. In those days, the vibrator was handled by a doctor who would manually manipulate the apparatus on a woman’s clitoris to bring her to sexual satisfaction. When the doctors realized that trying to bring a woman to orgasm in that manner was an arduous task, it became mechanized to do the job on its own. Specifically, the vibrator in those days appealed to women under stress — possibly lesbian women and sexually frustrated wives who were dissatisfied with their husbands’ performance.

  • Back then, the vibrator and manual stimulation by the doctors was not considered kinky but a necessary tool to cure hysteria.

Online Roll Playing Sites Are Big Business

The online world of simulated extramarital affairs offers the average user the chance to cheat online and live out their sexual fantasies without having to leave the comfort of their homes. Original Sin: Sex will reveal how this secret world of creative sexual play has millions of users who enjoy the freedom of engaging in certain acts without doing it in person. Below, you will find two more episodes to look out for on the upcoming Original Sin: Sex series.

Sex Ed Wars”

Government In The Bedroom”

“Learn how lawmakers attempt to regulate the most intimate behavior, along with those who fight to maintain our sexual freedoms.”

Nat Geo’s Original Sin Sex reminds one of 2001’s Original Sin, a movie set in Cuba about a seductive woman who uses her sexual beauty to make a rich man fall in love with her. The plan is to take all of the wealthy man’s money and run, but she has a change of heart after she begins to have deep feelings for him. It stars Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie.
