Kirby Dick's short (75-minute) documentary follows a Los Angeles sex therapist through the course of her sessions with two clients, a painfully shy 25-year-old virgin and a middle-aged premature ejaculator. You'd think these guys would have enough problems without a camera staring them in the face, but no—there is something predatory in the way Dick focuses on their embarrassed fumblings. Though the idea of the therapy appears to be the demystification of sex, the filming, with its voyeuristic detachment and curious prudishness (no genitals are shown), serves only to perpetuate the familiar fetishistic mechanisms.
