Real Sex, also known as HBO's Real Sex, is a video-magazine-format program dedicated to human sexuality. Each hour-long installment of the program highlights three or four different kinks, fetishes, or approaches to human sexuality and intercourse. In an effort to break between each segment, the show also featured interviews where pedestrians would be asked their opinions regarding one or more of the topics brought up within the program. Subjects brought up in the program include adult multimedia, drag performers, stripping, phone sex operators, electrical play, leather culture, DC's Club 55, the Miss Nude World competition, written poetry and paintings inspired by human sexuality, tantric play, women's sex education, nude photography, the industry that creates whips and floggers, a museum of sexology, London's annual Rubber Ball and even adult programs in non-English-speaking countries like Russia, China, and Sweden. Real Sex began airing on HBO back in 1990 and concluded its run in 2009. In the nearly two decades that this program was on the air, a total of 33 different episodes were produced; some of consisted of clips from different episodes that matched a certain theme.
