Private Practices: The Story of a Sex Surrogate
A most unusual career, unlisted in any college curricula, is the subject of this informative and curious documentary on sex surrogates. Basically, that means sex therapy through having sex. Clients are referred to surrogates via their own analysts, and the surrogate studied in this documentary is quite open about her job with her family (father and brother) and friends. As shown in a few sessions with two separate men, one 25 and the other 45 years old, the surrogate's first job is to relax the client and create a sense of trust. She also touches the client, and talks to him frankly and openly. Although the film is discreet and never delves into the physical act itself -- this is as far from pornography as one can get -- there is clearly a visible difference in the men as they lose their neuroses. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
