Sex and Celibacy: TLC’s “Strange Sex” and “Virgin Diaries” return

Two ends of the titillation spectrum are on hand as a couple of popular TLC franchises come back over the next week. Season 3 of the series Strange Sex returns Sunday, July 15, at 10pm and 10:30pm ET/PT with a look at more bizarre sexual fetishes and conditions. This season will include a man who cured his erectile dysfunction by drinking his wife’s breast milk, a woman who undergoes vaginal rejuvenation (hymenoplasty) for her 40th wedding anniversary, a woman who experiences painful orgasms and the woman in the video below, who has an uncomfortable-looking condition called gigantomastia that gives her the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest natural breasts  — Size 102ZZZ! (This is balanced out in a later episode in the season, where we meet a man with a 160-pound scrotum.)

After all that sex talk, you might need a sabbatical. The folks in the Virgin Diaries will be on hand to help you by talking about not getting any. These two new specials, premiering July 18 and 25 at 10pm ET/PT, follow last winter’s hit special that included a couple who (very awkwardly) kissed for the first time at their wedding. There will likely be more cringe-worthy moments like that in these specials as we meet people like Skippy in the below video, whose issue seems to be way overthinking his situation (although wearing a “Virginity Rocks” T-shirt might not be helping matters, either).
