Sex with Strangers Reviews

Basically a "reality TV"-style documentary about a few groups of people with no decent personality. I guess these people couldn't attract anyone to be around them without acting like this. So much pettiness; how could you chose to live like this if minor jealousies set you off? I also learned the difference between wife-swapping and swinging. I wonder if there are attractive-people-only swinger clubs, because some of these were downright horrid looking.

It looked really stupid, but as with most well made documentaries it's more insightful than at first glance. An entire world of polygamy has been opened here for neophytes of the topic, and although I don't think I'll try it, Sex With Strangers leaves one open minded in spite of how even handed it is in bringing up polygamous dilemmas (As in, it's not fully supportive at every corner). The sex is fully explicit; not of the XXX type as I don't think it titillates (or is meant to titillate) and furthermore there's no close up of the sex or active sexual organs. At least three (Might be four - can't remember) couples' swinging lives are shuffled throughout and it's ironic how these are Middle USA white people, ones one typically expects to be fervently religious and sexually conservative in these matters.

What an odd documentary. Might be interested in something a little more high end.

Sex. There, that got your attention. This is a doco with excellent insight into the swingers' world. Don't watch it to be titillated, watch it to make sure you understand just how complex the lifestyle can be. They're not the sexiest American couples to study, sure, but that's not the point at all. They opened up their lives to the cameras, and you don't get that everyday.

3/10: Documentary-style shooting that explores the swingers' lifestyles. Not recommended if you don't like documentary.

Calvin and his two ladies are utter morons, the rest of the couples were a little more interesting.
