Film screeening: Sticky: A (Self) Love Story
Everyone does it; few admit it; now theres a movie about it! Sticky talks candidly about what has been referred to throughout history as both a form of self-love and self-abuse. After being shamed as a child by fellow students for admitting that he masturbated, writer/director Nicholas Tana interviewed over sixty sexologists, authors, religious figures, porn stars, and entertainers to understand whats so wrong (or is that right?) with masturbation.
Full of candid interviews from sex therapists, religious figures, and psychologists to celebrated figures such as former Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, comedian Janeane Garofalo, and, among others, Hustler creator Larry Flynt, Sticky answers age-old questions; Will it make me go blind?; Is it normal?; and, Why are we so afraid to be caught in the act? As well as tackling more contemporary issues like why the media portrays masturbation so negatively, how the worlds major religions disagree about the moral effects of self-pleasuring, and why the sale of sex toys is illegal in Alabama.
When confusion about sexuality remains at the root of so many societal problems, STICKY pulls no punches in exploring a subject that touches us all.
