Sex & Sexuality

Female Orgasm Explained, The

"Desire is essential to achieve orgasm. It's neurological. When you have a strong desire for someone, your brain releases a hormone, dopamine, which increases pleasure." The sexual revolution of the 70s allowed women to claim their right to pleasure and to better know their body. However, thirty years later, female orgasm remains a mystery to many men and women. In this documentary, women speak openly of their experience. Their testimonies are accompanied by analyses from psychoanalysts and sex therapists who describe, with supporting sketches and videos, sexual pleasure in all its forms. (Excerpt from main website)

Ken & Barbie Killers, The

"They were attractive looking. They were intelligent. They were in love. The idea that these were the bad guys, that they were capable of doing anything so vile is something that is hard for us to comprehend." Dubbed ‘The Ken and Barbie Killers’ for their blonde, tanned and seemingly wholesome image, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka were in fact a husband and wife team of serial killers from Ontario, Canada. Their trials and subsequent convictions for raping and murdering three teenage girls engendered a global media storm. Alarmingly, amongst their victims was Karla’s younger sister, 15-year-old Tammy Homolka. Karla served her full sentence of 12 years whilst Paul is currently in prison for life.

Zoo

"My secret is out now. Everybody in the world knows what I did. I was evil. I was evil because I had love for my animals more than most people do." In 2005 a bizarre new story spread from the sleepy rural town of Enumclaw, WA -- a man died of internal injuries sustained while attempting a sexual act with a horse. It was discovered the man was part of a small group of zoophiliacs -- people who crave erotic contact with animals -- and that they had been engaging in various activities with local animals for some time. While investigating the incident, Washington police authorities discovered the state had no laws on the books concerning bestiality, and Sen. Pam Roach ...

Wonderland: Virtual Adultery

"There is now a new world which has welcomed over four million inhabitants in the last three years. Its name is Second Life and it’s accessed through the Internet. Here in this virtual world, each inhabitant is an entirely unique avatar, a fantasy creation that’s usually taller, stronger, fitter, and more attractive than the person controlling it on the other side of the screen…but Second Life isn’t a game, it’s a virtual life fueled by real wants and desires. And for some, when life and love are less than perfect, the escape it offers can be more seductive than the real world." Documentary series about everyday dramas. Carolyn is a 37 year-old mother of four in the midst of a passionate ...

"When Jack Valenti became president of the MPAA back in, I guess 1966, he came from Washington, he came from the President's office, where he had been Lyndon Johnson's man.

Teenage Sex for Sale

"The grooming starts when you meet them and they're nice to you and take you for McDonalds and buy you cigarettes. I was flattered by it at first cos older boys were interested in you, which at 13 is nice." –"Jane" A Panorama investigation has uncovered how girls, sometimes as young as 12, are being groomed for prostitution by gangs on the streets of Britain. In what is often a hidden crime, gangs are targeting young girls in a process that starts as adolescent fun but soon leads to abuse, drug addiction and prostitution. The girls are often flattered by the attentions of older boys and like the idea of having an older boyfriend, but the initial friendship can soon turn ugly. (Excerpt ...

Sexy Inc. – Our Children Under Influence

"[Y]ou can see a sudden change about five or six years ago when we started being increasingly bombarded with sexually suggestive messages and children depending on their age of course receive them as if they were normal. When you're dealing with children and teenagers in particular, they are at an age where they want to fit in with the norm. They want to resemble their idols. They want to be popular. That’s a key concept in adolescence. Well, now to be popular, you have to be hot. You have to give off sexual energy, but when you’re fourteen years old or even eleven, that’s easier said than done. So they start imitating, dressing the same way, and doing the same ...

Sex, Drugs, and Democracy

"If true freedom were readily available and could be found without great effort, how is it possible that it should be neglected by almost everyone? But all things excellent are as difficult as they are rare." –B. de Spinoza SEX, DRUGS & DEMOCRACY is Jonathan Blank's award-winning, indie cult film, which grossed over $1 million in its art-house run, and is now available on video and DVD.

Sex Crimes and the Vatican

"The church knew he was a child abuser. Instead of reporting O'Brady, the church hid him from the authorities. No mistake, a part of a secret church directive. The man responsible for enforcing it was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict the XVI." Created in 1962, a now infamous document was issued in secret to bishops. Called Crimen Sollicitationis, it outlined procedures to be followed by bishops when dealing with allegations of child abuse, homosexuality and bestiality by members of the clergy. It swore all parties involved to secrecy on pain of excommunication from the Catholic Church. This document was reissued in 2001 by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and sent to all bishops. Yet rather than ordering more openness and cooperation with the ...
