L uke McGregor has successfully etched out a career from a routine best described in a word: awkward. The result is rather, well, lukewarm: a bland milk-and-water pseudo sex-ed doco that feels like it was co-written by Healthy Harold and the Year-Old Virgin. The premise is that McGregor wants to get better at sex, so he puts himself through a range of awkward situations. This involves generally tame things: mostly consulting various experts, counsellors and quacks apologies to the Magical Erotic Power Sex Witch.
The premise-explaining portion of the first episode begins, well, awkwardly, though not in the manner intended. Is he suggesting that regarding erotic behaviour between same-gender people somehow constitutes being broadminded? How do you do it? How do you become excellent at it?
Long portions are devoted to activities such as licking pieces of fruit and rehearsing masturbation techniques using lubricated cucumbers. Luke Warm Sex directed by Hayden Guppy is the latest series to fall off an assembly line of personality-oriented programs that blur the line between reality TV and documentary. Judith Lucy was all woman and Todd Sampson redeed his brain.
Julia Zemiro home delivers while Annabel Crabb comes around for dinner. The stunts in this genre, if we can call it that, seem to be getting — forgive me — rather flaccid. The ballsiest one in Luke Warm Sex transpires in the first episode, when McGregor s a group of nudists and plays tennis in the buff. The activity the host bills as his greatest challenge — the test of all his experiences, his personal sexual Olympics — is, wait for it, reading out erotic fiction at a hipster bar on High Street in Northcote, Melbourne.
I used to live on that street. In the first, the presenter hallucinated on peyote in Arizona and was literally crucified in the Philippines.
In the second he concluded a breathtaking interview with Holocaust denier David Irving by locking him in a room and pretending to fill it with gas. Safran even did the seemingly impossible, performing in blackface and emerging with no reputational damage.
It was more than a string of stunts, he and his film-makers shrewdly demonstrating how to meaningfully mix comedy and provocation. But different, er, strokes for different folks. His style is deliberately meek, a milquetoast we can all to some extent relate to. Padded out into six derivative episodes the central conceit, that he wants to get great at sex, is in no way realisedLuke Warm Sex has as much kick to it as a t with oregano substituted for weed.
The ABC are broadcasting it at 9pm; that time slot feels off by at least a handful of hours. The response from audiences will likely be a plea: please, please, please, make it stop. Australian television. Luke Warm Sex review — not just the sex that's lukewarm in documentary stunts.
