SEX! Now that I’ve got your attention …
If you’re not getting any this Valentine’s Day weekend, at least you can watch a couple of rebroadcast Discovery Channel specials to help you understand why you want it so badly, and why you enjoy it so much when the opportunity finally comes along. And if you are lucky enough to be getting some — well, you’ll probably be DVRing these programs while you’re otherwise occupied, I suppose.
Here are the sexy specials Discovery Channel will be running this Saturday night, Feb. 11:
Curiosity: Why Is Sex Fun? — 9pm ET/PT. Maggie Gyllenhaal hosts this look at the orgasm — one of the most intense pleasures we can experience. But what are orgasms actually for? In men, the answer is fairly simple — reproduction. But women don’t need an orgasm to get pregnant. So why have them? With cutting-edge science and research, this program investigates this pleasurable enigma.
Anatomy of Sex — 10pm ET/PT. This program is about the evolution of sex. Our bodies work in specific, yet subtle, ways for one reason only — making more humans. We live for having sex, and in this special, how we do it and why are the focus points. The show travels inside the body to see what happens to both men and women when we’re attracted to someone, when we’re aroused, and when orgasm finally ensures the possibility of reproducing.
