MASTERS OF SEX remembers a time before the world was awash in images of sex - and in doing so, finds the ground to become the rare work actually about sex. Michelle Ashford's lushly produced period piece embraces both the kinky and clinical aspects of Masters and Johnson's pioneering research, allowing the series to lay bare its subject with candor and humor - raising consciousness as it raises eyebrows.
