While stuck in these agonisingly dull lockdowns, chances are your partner’s been watching (or maybe also cajoled you into watching) Sex/Life on Netflix to spice up the boredom.
If you’ve been hiding under the doona, in denial about all things life, Sex/Life has been trending, running hot in Australia.
And, just as everything around us today is on-demand, it’s hardly surprising that the demand for an on demand sex life is also on the rise.
The pressure to deliver is real. It’s why men are turning to discreet online health platforms like Mosh; an easy online service for men suffering with erectile dysfunction, which delivers affordable, clinical treatment direct to your door.
Sex/Life tells the story of Billie Connelly (Sarah Shahi), a former wild-child who partied hard in New York before getting married, having two kids and moving to the suburbs with her trader husband.
She starts journaling and fantasizing about her passionate exploits with her super sexy ex-boyfriend Brad who just happens to have a huge penis (played by easy on the eye Aussie, Adam Demos). This is the heartbreak she never got over and she becomes nostalgic for her old life.
There’s plenty of escapism into writhing fantasies and flashbacks, glimpses into her old world of incredible sex with a hot guy.
Let’s face it: the hot guy has it easy.
The husband, however, is the one who’s facing what many men face in real life. As a successful investment banker, he’s a dependable family man with a heart of gold. But that’s not all; unlike the hot guy who just has to show up, get it up and pleasure the woman in all sorts of venues, the husband is expected to deliver security for his family as well as sexually satisfy his wife.

When he finds his wife’s journal, he uses it as a manual in an attempt to spice up their sex life.
“When you watch the show you’ll ask, ‘Is it possible to find passion and security in the same relationship?’ says Mike Vogel who plays Cooper Connelly.
While Adam Demos, who plays the ex, says, “I related to Brad from the beginning, and I pulled a lot of my performance from my own life experiences.”
The success of the show has (finally) kicked off conversations in the media about erectile issues and erectile dysfunction.

Sex/Life was specifically written so that you’re torn between the two men, that’s the whole concept of the show.
And the lead female character, like most women, unashamedly loves sex.
She wants hot sex, she enjoys sex and she’s demanding lots of fulfilling sex.
That’s where the hiccup can be for many men; if you’ve got that emotional connection with your partner, you don’t want to disappoint, you want to perform.
Not just sometimes, but every time!
It’s all about being able to perform on demand, precisely when you want to
Sex/Life had an intimacy coordinator on set, specifically on-hand to help with choreographing and guiding the sex scenes, their job is to think about every aspect.
Funnily enough, most of us don’t have a cast of experts to help us with all of this – but Penthouse spoke to some sex insiders to get some insights.
What do porn insiders say about the huge dick that we see on screen? How would that really work in real life?
“While I’ve seen my fair share of penis in this industry, the penis in question would be an issue for most women,” famous Australian Sex worker Christine McQueen told Penthouse when we asked her about the Sex/Life series. “I remember a client who had an impressive appendage and couldn’t get a full stroke in. His tears and pleads were not my problem, I wasn’t going near that thing! We referred to him as ‘Vlad the Impaler’. I’m surprised he didn’t pass out with all the blood it took to prime that thing.
“While length and girth is always appreciated, as the old adage goes, it’s what you do with it that counts not to mention the 1000 other ways you can pleasure a woman.”

Porn star Isabelle Deltore also told us that one of the main reasons guys struggle to get it up in porn is because their dick is too big. Yes, pornstars suffer from erectile dysfunction just like every-day guys trying to turn it on in the bedroom. “There are many reasons I’ve come across that performers who are very well endowed [suffer erectile dysfunction] and they simply can’t stay hard for very long. That’s a real issue,” Isabelle says.
You see, size really doesn’t matter; it’s all about being able to perform on demand, precisely when you want to.
Make sure you make it happen!
