While most people in the late 1950s could barely bring themselves to talk about sex, this team was studying it!
Kinsey I had heard of, but I hadn’t learned about the contributions Masters & Johnsons made to the study of human sexual response. This series is based on their work. (Some details, however, are fictional.)
I tuned in last night at 10pm for the series premier on Showtime, and I look forward to tuning in again for Episode 2. While William Masters (played by Michael Sheen) comes off as an arrogant doctor with an ego bigger than his name, I anticipate that his character will be evolving in positive ways throughout the series–partly due to influence from his secretary and soon-to-be partner, Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), a sexually revolutionized character with whom I have already begun to fall in love.
