Why you should watch: Masters of Sex

masters_of_sex_logo

Masters of sex is definitely not a show for the squeamish, or anyone who is at an impressionable age – but it is the show for someone who enjoys a great period piece that explores the taboo nature of sex in the 1960’s.

The show is actually based off of a biography of the same name and follows William Masters and his assistant (and future ex wife) Virginia Johnson as they explore the scientific nature of sex.

Obviously, in those times, any explicit talk of sex was thought of as filth; and we see a lot of that in this show, as well as how a lot of scientific developments, surgeries, and medications came in to place today through science.

The show offers compelling writing, and even though it is based off of true events – there is still enough drama to keep any viewer interested.
