Hit documentary series "Lesbian Sex and Sexuality" set to premiere its second season
LOS ANGELES, CA – July 29, 2008 – here!, America's premium gay and lesbian television network is pleased to announce the premiere of the second season of the critically-acclaimed documentary series Lesbian Sex and Sexuality. The brand new season of "Lesbian Sex and Sexuality" will consist of five 30-minute episodes and will make its network debut on Friday, September 5th.
A topic rarely discussed before in television, the exploration of lesbian sexual culture has seen a recent up-rise through hit shows like "The L Word," here!'s "Dante's Cove," and the British hit series "Sugar Rush" – also recently acquired by here! Networks. "Lesbian Sex and Sexuality" takes things one step further with focused, doc-style episodes which provide provocative and groundbreaking insights into lesbian sex.
The second season of "Lesbian Sex and Sexuality" covers topics such as lesbian "high camp," lesbian burlesque, queer porn star Loralei Lee, the difference between butch and femme and everything in-between, the stereotype-killing renaissance of the lesbian one-night stand, lesbian escorts, lesbian sex at The Dinah, and, of course, tons of sexperts – including Sirius Satellite Radio's Diana Cage and Ourchart.com's Grace Moon – with tips on the latest sex techniques and the best sex toys to buy!
"'Lesbian Sex and Sexuality 2' will once again take an unblinking, comprehensive and provocative ride into a world where lesbian desire isn't whispered but seriously celebrated," says Producer and Director Katherine Linton.
Linton is an award-winning producer whose documentaries have aired on PBS, A & E, Logo, VH1, Bravo, TLC and Discovery Health. She has been producing socially relevant media for over ten year. As Senior Producer and host of the series "In the Life" she brought gay and lesbian issues to a national public television audience as early as 1993. In her subsequent works she has continued to focus on the stories of the marginalized in society and their struggle to maintain dignity in a mostly hostile landscape.
"Katherine Linton has a knack for un-earthing uniquely entertaining, authentic stories of the community. We're incredibly lucky to work with this talented filmmaker and her team," says Meredith Kadlec, Senior Vice President, Original Programming.
