Masters of Sex Trailer: Sort of Not What It Sounds Like!

at . Comments

Showtime's new series Masters of Sex isn't quite what its title might make you think (or hope for). There will be strong sexual content - it's still Showtime - but in a context that is both different and based on a true story.

Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan star as the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series and its clever play-on-words title will chronicles their unusual lives.

In a made-for-TV tale of science, pop culture and romance, Masters and Johnson's career paths took many twists and turns as their research sparked a sexual revolution and made them celebrities in their own right.

Masters of Sex premieres in 2013. Watch the network's first promo for it below:

It's breakthrough drama alright....I really can't believe they have episodes and episodes with basic plot-lines for 'Masters of Sex'.

Masters of Sex Quotes

When we talk about sex, we do not talk about love, Dr. Farber, because love cannot be rendered into columns and graphs as if it were the same as blood pressure or heart rate. Love is not a force exerted by one body onto another. It is the very fabric of those bodies. Love is that which carves the lines and grooves; the curvature of our desire.

Bill: Make sure he knows this evening's area of focus please. We'll be looking at men with enlarged prostates, primarily elderly men. Engaged in auto-manipulation.
Barbara: Auto, I'm sorry?
Bill: Old men masturbating!
