40 Year Old Virgins (Barcroft TV Documentary)
Most of us lose our virginity in our teens or early twenties. But for some, problems having sex for the first time overshadow their lives. Clive, aged 45, from Hertfordshire, and 29-year-old Irish-born Rosie, are both virgins – and not through choice. Now they’ve decided it’s time to lose it. This film follows Clive and Rosie as they embark on a radical course of sex therapy in the USA where they work intensively with a therapist and professional sex surrogate partner – who are trained and work with licences. For two weeks, Clive is partnered with the doyenne of sex surrogates Cheryl Cohen Greene, whose life story is told in the Oscar nominated film The Sessions. Rosie works with Gary Mallinickrodt – one of only 5 male sex surrogates in the US licensed to work with female clients. Over the course of two weeks Clive and Rosie will be helped to overcome their issues around sexual intimacy. But will they – finally – lose it?
