Tell Me You Love Me (and my hairy balls)

So, I just finished watching this new show on HBO called Tell Me You Love Me.

In the first one-hour episode I saw no less than two separate nut sacks, tons of titties, nude women, nude dudes, a guy going down on a girl, guy ass, girl ass, tons of pubic hair, a lady in stirrups, a quickie at a parent’s house, a car bang, a drunken couple bang, two penis (or is it peni?), a guy masturbating in bed, an erect cock, a hand-job, a woman checking out her husband’s sperm and an old lady sucking off her old husband. Whew!

It was a very titillating experience to say the least. Basically, it felt like I was watching a full-blown porno, but with talented actors, a creative director, a budget and a decent screenwriter.

And although I had a semi in my pants during most of the sex parts (excluding the old folks), the series is too much of a downer to actually get your rocks off. So, all you horn dogs are better off just renting a porno at your local adult video store.

Amidst all the banging and bodily-fluid sharing there is a story line as well: Three different couples are going through three separate types of intimacy problems concerning their relationships. One couple can’t have a kid. One couple hasn’t had sex in more than a year. And another couple uses sex as a diversion so they won’t have to face their real problems. Oh yeah, all three couples are also seeing the same marriage counselor, which brings the whole thing together.

All dirty sex aside, it's an interesting series. Plus, it's nice to see HBO taking another risque chance. But, the only thing that bothers me is that I'm afraid the show will ‘blow its wad' too fast (much like myself when I was 17 years old) and become a one-trick pony of gratuitous sex, ass bobbing up-and-down and (gulp!) hairy balls.

So with that in mind, I think I'm going to stay tuned for another couple episodes and see what happens.

At the very least, I'll get to see the nude hot bods of Sonya Walger (Desmond's girlfriend on Lost) and Michelle Borth.

Hey! I'm just being honest. And you should too. Check out Episode 2 this Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m. and tell me what you think.

Hey Bob, thanks for the response and links. I'm still watching, so there must be something to the show.

From watching the first episode, I thought it was going to be blatant soft-core porn throughout. But there's some bonafide character study going on.
