 Medical Abnormalities, Unusual Fetishes Explored by 'Strange Sex'

The second season of 'Strange Sex' of TLC will be a documentary-reality series on medical abnormalities, unusual fetishes and the science behind sexual attraction.

The 10 episode docu-reality series profiles a range of individuals brave enough to divulge the trials and tribulations of their various conditions.

It will include a Muslim couple who waited until their wedding night to have sex only to discover they were unable to consummate their nuptials, a woman born with two vaginas dealing with the possibility she will not be able to have children.

And, in the debut episode, Ron Low, a typical suburban husband and father from Chicago on a mission to help men restore their foreskin, will be featured.

"In 2001 I realized I had to do something to improve my sex life because it was getting to be dull," Fox News quoted Low, an industrial engineer, as saying.

"I researched online and found out there are a lot of men restoring their foreskins and I decided to do it too.

"The tape less device I wanted wasn't available, so that got me tinkering in my own basement to make a device based on some ideas I had seen online and came up with a way to make these things to meet my needs.

"I hope when you see (the show) you get an appreciation for how foreskin restoration really benefits men. It makes up for a lot of damage," he stated.

According to Los Angeles-based psychologist Dr. Nancy Irwin, 'Strange Sex' will also provide a profound sense of relief to those with atypical sexual predilections, in addition to providing treatment techniques and resources.

"Hopefully, the show will underscore the fact that no one chooses to have these conditions, and it takes a very courageous person to share this intimate issue and ask for help," she said.

While the show deals with an assortment of unconventional issues, it has clearly captivated American audiences. The season one premiere attracted an average of 1.2 million viewers.

"We send very confusing messages through the media; teens and girls are highly sexualised at an alarmingly earlier age now, yet our sex offender laws and punishments are stricter than ever. No wonder offences are higher," Irwin said.

"This is why people tune in to a show like this; we are curious about sex, and want some real answers that are not available through commercial means," she added.
