History TV18 deciphers the revolution of sex with ‘History of Sex’
MUMBAI: Food, water and shelter are all basic necessities for a man to survive, but another powerful need that has transformed history over time has been sex. Now infotainment broadcaster History TV18 will air ‘History of Sex’, a show that narrates the journey of this evolution from 16 February at 11 pm.
This six-part series will focus on the century’s myriad innovations and movements, especially those that are of a sexual nature. From the women at workplace to automobile and motion picture, each has played an integral part in the early sexual revolution.
The series showcases the inception of the first latex condom in the 19th century to the invention of the contraceptive pills in the 1960s. The later part of the series highlights Masters and Johnson’s sexual studies, the early years of Aids, Viagra and the impact of the internet.
‘History of Sex’ spans over thousands of years and sheds light on how the idea of sex has changed—from Ghengis Khan using it to expand the Mongol Empire to the survival of harems for thousands of years and even how Hoover used it to blackmail top-level politicians.
Besides, the series will reveal surprising histories behind cornflakes, World War II pin-up girls, car design and much more.
