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]

Comedian Greg Barris and SNL digital short filmmaker Adam Epstein teamed up to make a video about real true love. And by real true love, they mean a passionate relationship with a puppet. God, there’s so much existential truth in this video. [You Tube]
I’ve heard of women naming their breasts, but blogger Heidi Leigh took boob play a step further. She had the brilliant idea to dress her breasts up like puppets, or “buppets,” as she calls them. People seemed to enjoy her breast puppetry, so they started submitting their own buppets to her blog, Tit Thinks It’s People. Um, we think she’s onto something here. Apparently, there is way more fun to be had with our boobs. We should put on a buppet show! It would be the breast! Who’s in? Click through to see some of our favorite buppets. And obviously, though these breasts appear in costume, they are still NSFW.
