Sex With Strangers [DVD] [2002]

A compelling documentary (brought to you by the makers of HBO's infectiously lurid Taxicab Confessions) with all the components of your typical Jerry Springer episode gone bad, sexual power plays, dysfunction, and unabashed hedonism abound in this DVD from Strand Releasing. Presented in 1.33:1, the image is virtually flawless and the colors well balanced. Even-colored flesh tones abound as our sexual sextuplet embarks on a series of orgiastic adventures, and the Dolby Digital Stereo soundtrack realistically brings every moan and groan into viewers' living rooms with commendable, distortion-free clarity. After viewers experience Swinging 101 with the feature, some interesting extras offer an even more compelling look at "The Lifestyle." Over 30 minutes of addition scenes offer everything from swinger James displaying his "special technique" to a revelation of the damning social ramifications of such a sexually liberated lifestyle. If viewers are curious as to the state of the subjects' current relationships, they can take a peek at some updates that follow them both personally and professionally, and trailers for this and other titles from Strand round this release out nicely.

Synopsis

Sex With Strangers
Already the subject of another theatrical-release documentary (1999's The Lifestyle), sexually "open" relationships go under the microscope yet again in this feature-length effort from Taxicab Confessions creators Joe and Harry Gantz. Sex With Strangers profiles two couples and one threesome in which each partner has agreed to experiment sexually with others, ideally without emotional attachment. First up are James and Theresa, a middle-aged Oregon husband and wife who seek out action on the Internet, then travel to the site of the willing party in their camper van. Meanwhile in Mississippi, Gerard and Shannon are young marrieds who frequent sex parties, trying to organize their often-separate sexual schedules around caring for their son. Finally, James' younger friend Calvin may think he has it all -- two full-time girlfriends -- but the jealousy and resentment between the two comes to the fore as he tries to decide which woman he's going to legally marry. Sex With Strangers was aired on Showtime before its theatrical run. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
