Watch How Sex Changed the World
- 1 Season
How Sex Changed the World is a television show that presents historical anecdotes about times when sex or sexual influences have made a significant impact on human history. The anecdotes are alternately told by the narrator and various commentators, including historians, anthropologists, and other experts. Some more modern anecdotes are told through a first-person account by the actual subject of the story. The show also examines how the event influenced history. For example, an episode that featured Genghis Khan explained that he was directly related to one out of every six people with Asian ancestry. The show is interspersed with short interviews with people pulled from the street. They are asked personal questions about their sex lives or to attempt to explain the historical event being featured in the show. The narrators then proceed to explain the actual event. At the end of every anecdote, there is a visual recap of the story and the episode thus far.
