I saw it on 4od and turned it off when I realised it was going to be utterly depressing and tragic instead of the rip roaring comedy I was expecting.

I find it astounding in this day and age with cheap supermarket alcohol.

Why would you watch a program to laugh at the misery of others?

Same reason I read the general and sports forums.

I watched it as genuinely intrigued. In the end, it was a bit limp.

Sorry it wasn't a huge topic starter... I just really didn't know how to start a convo off on this one as I wasn't sure how many would've actually sat and watched this and contributed to talk on the programme.

Why dont the blokes just go to a prostitute?

Probably cheaper, younger and better looking.

All these sex therapist people are incredibly ugly.

Well, you could have given some kind of view based on your viewing of the program.

I missed this program. So was it uncomfortable to watch? In what way was it so?

Why are they virgins? Are they ugly? Is it down to an illness? Do they have the wrong genitals? Scared of getting STDs from prostitutes? Or just really unlucky to not find someone?

Well unless I have this wrong ... I think I managed to pay attention. There was a guy in his 40s and a woman in late 20s who were on the programme. The guy was a virgin mainly due to being embarrassed when he was younger (someone pulled his pants down in front of some girls) and also due to strong religious indoctrination which meant he couldn't even bear to say rude words without suffering an anxiety attack. The girl has been a victim of abuse when she was younger which obviously had a lasting effect on her.
Neither were ugly or horrible people. They had sessions with psychiatrists as well as the sex therapists to address the underlying issues.
The guys reasoning to going to these people was because he had issues with having intimate contact with someone as well as getting naked in front of someone. He had, had relationships before but obviously struggled.
The girl on the other hand had friends who were coupling off, getting married, having children and she really wanted children of her own one day but couldn't cope with a man to touching her - or for that matter hadn't even touched herself.

I found it uncomfortable to watch because scenes of intimacy were shown mainly between the guy and his therapist. Scenes like this is a film wouldn't bother me but this seemed so wooden (which it was) and the guy also got very upset at times which made me feel sorry for him.

This isn't simply a question of nakedness, its about emotional trauma, and dealing with the layers of rational and irrational beliefs that are built on that.

Didnt watch it as turned over after watching the pre titles bit.From the 30 secs I saw the questions you asked may have made a better programme.

I may have read that the wrong way, but are you saying the therapist was sexually intimate with the patient? Or maybe just in spoken terms?

I guess the program was probably the complete opposite with what the film was aiming for.

Being naked infront of someone as a phobia seems a little odd to me, unless there is some other inherent deeper issues to this.
