2x10 Bisexuality (March 31, 2017)
Is bisexuality just a matter of opportunism? Do we all have a little bisexual in us? Is our sexual orientation genetic? Lili unravels the answers with the help of psychologist Meredith Chivers, who has explored the question “Are women naturally bisexual?” and meets with sexologist and researcher Jessica Caruse, who has been thinking about the distinction between sexual orientation and social trends.
2x09 Abstinence (March 24, 2017)
Where there is sex, there is inevitably the absence of it. Lili explores all things abstinence: what motivates it, the effects in can have on the body (blue balls, blue bean), the social and cultural pressures associated with it (hymen reconstruction), and puts it to the test herself. After a month of total abstinence, she shares her reflections.
2x08 Porn (March 17, 2017)
While porn is everywhere today, consumed frequently as a cultural product, is it still shameful to talk about? Lili explores the world of pornography without taboos, exploring its effects on the body and the mind with Eric Falardeau, a doctoral student in pornographic studies. She also talks with Magik, producer and designer of immersive porn, neuroscientist Jim Pfaus, and Mélody Kush, a popular Quebec webcam girl. Beyond the few minutes of pleasure it promises, is porn harmful or beneficial?
2x07 Menopause | Andropause (March 10, 2017)
Is it possible to have a sex life after menopause and andropause? Menopause has been well documented for years. But what about andropause, the inevitable loss of libido that occurs after the age of 50, which we’ve only been talking about for the past 15 years? Can it be treated or is it a natural part of aging that we must learn to live with? Lili explores these questions with andropause specialist Luc Bessette. She also talks to Laurie Betito, psychologist, radio host and author of The Sex Bible for people over 50, and Valérie Gibson, the world’s first “cougar” and the official guide for women stepping out with younger men.
2x06 Domination (March 03, 2017)
Is the act of sex another power game brought to the bedroom? Is there always one dominant partner in the relationship? And when a couple voluntarily introduces power games into the bedroom, is it possible to explore aggression without abuse? Lili seeks answers to these questions with, among others, well-known psychologist Meredith Chivers, neuropsychologist Christian Joyal, sexology researcher and author of the BDSM book The Rules of the Game, Jessica Caruso, and a professional dominatrix. Sexual domination: healthy fun or a dangerous game?
2x05 Masculine Pleasure (February 24, 2017)
Do men exploit the full sexual potential of their bodies? Beyond the precious penis, are they aware that there is more than one path that leads to orgasm? Lili invites men to discover their bodies by introducing them to sex toys for men and their multiple erogenous zones, the P-spot and the mysterious prostatic orgasm. She explores the subject with sexologist Vincent Quesnel, sexual therapist Carlyle Jansen, and David Francis-Cassidy, founder of Montreal’s Temple Priapus.
2x04 Performance (February 17, 2017)
According to a recent study, sexual performance is one of the biggest concerns among us. But most of the time, these worries are unfounded, based on a completely biased view of what a “normal” sexual relationship should be. Lili takes stock of the myths and facts surrounding sexual performance.
2x03 Breasts (February 10, 2017)
Are breasts synonymous with sex? Have they always played such an important role in our culture? Lili meets with historian Evelyne Ferron, a specialist in the history of breasts throughout the ages. She also talks to 23-year-pld Instagram sensation Kristyna Martelli, who boasts a 32JJ cup size (the result of six surgeries) and makes a living from her ample bosom. Never one to shy away from misconceptions, Lili takes the opportunity to explore the bra … how many women will she convince to take theirs off?
2x02 STDs (February 03, 2017)
In the age of social media and online hook-ups, are STDs making a comeback? There’s been an upsurge in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis in recent times. Lili tackles the problem with sexologist Sarah-Mathieu Chartier, co-author of the most recent study on the sexual health of young people in Quebec. And what does it mean to live with an STD today? Guy Leduc, founder of the website ITSRencontres.com, who himself has contracted herpes, weighs in. We can all agree that more needs to be done to spread the STD message, and that we need to reinvent our preventative strategies. Could mobile apps and video games be the answer in 2016?
2x01 The Ass (January 27, 2017)
Has the butt become the new sexual Mecca? With more and more people enhancing their derrieres, (thank you, Kim Kardashian!), the ass has become society’s number one sexual asset. Among the most popular plastic surgeries of our time, the famous Brazilian butt lift is now practiced well beyond the borders of Latin America. And how about those belfies (a.k.a. butt selfies) that get hundreds of thousands of hits on social media? As she explores the growing craze for this popular part of our anatomy, Lili also meets with therapist and speaker Carlyle Jansen to demystify the practice of anal sex, considers the risks of sodomy with gastroenterologist Michael Bensoussan, and debunks the myth that all homosexuals are into anal.
