“Felt” Is Sex Therapy With Puppets

By: Jessica Wakeman / May 6, 2013

Everything is better with puppets, especially other people’s sex therapy sessions. Tonight on LOGO TV is the debut of “Felt,” a reality show that explores real people’s sex therapy sessions — using their real voices! — but enacted by puppets. Think Dr. Ruth meets “Sesame Street”: 24 couples are (anonymously) recorded in exchange for the free therapy for their bedroom issues. The three sex therapists are portrayed as puppets as well. Clients range from a gay couple with body image issues, a lesbian couple with “lesbian bed death,” and some straight Christians who married too young. And because they’re portrayed as, well, puppets, nothing ever gets too uncomfortable for the viewer. (The producers? That might be a different story.) I don’t know about you, but I know what I’ll be watching at 10:30 p.m. EST tonight — puppets working through their sexual issues. [LOGO TV via New York Times]
