When confusion about sexuality remains at the root of societal problems –STICKY pulls no punches in exploring a subject that touches us all.
"Sticky" is everything your mother was too embarrassed to tell you about masturbation, in one stimulating documentary. Full of candid interviews from celebrated figures to everyday people, health care professionals, sex therapists, zoologists, anthropologists, and religious figures, this feature length doc answers age-old questions like: What is masturbation? Will it make me go blind? Is it "normal"? Is it wrong? And why are we so afraid to be caught in the act? In a world where confusion about sexuality remains at the root of so many societal problems - rape, sexual abuse, and the threat of sexually transmitted diseases - "Sticky" will help shatter misconceptions and myths surrounding this intimate aspect of human sexuality.
"Sticky: A (Self) Love Story" is a Documentary that sets things straight on masturbation. Whether you are a kid, a woman or a man almost everyone has masturbated at least once in their life and the ones that say they haven't are probably lying because they are too embarrassed to admit it. The Documentary talks about masturbation from all sides with many different people from celebs, to religious leaders to school teachers and so on, some of the people featured in the film are, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hartley, Larry Flynt, Dr. Joycelyn Elders (former Surgeon General) – and over 60 sexologists, sex educators, psychologists, authors, law makers, religious figures, porn stars and entertainers.
The film attempts to create some professional and mature dialogue about the subject but the film cannot help being funny as well. "Sticky: A (Self) Love Story" is a fun, informative and intelligent look at the history of masturbation, it also takes a look at the political and religious views as well as the medical implications of self love. The most disturbing part of the film tells the story of what happened on Thanksgiving, 2013 when Matthew Burdette a 14-year-old school student took his own life after someone posted a video of him online that accused Matthew of masturbating in a bathroom stall. He was bullied so much over it that he took is own life. How bad are we as humans to do such a thing to someone over something like masturbation. That story alone should make everyone very angry and it should be a stepping stone to educating our kids and everyone else about masturbation so something like this never happens again. No one should ever be ashamed of loving themselves.
Available now on VOD and DVD, you can order it HERE. "Sticky: A (Self) Love Story" is a terrific educational tool as well as an entertaining one that you will get a rise out of so be sure to check it out.
