New reality show ‘Good Sex’ wants to leak your sex tape — and then review it

Published

on

A new Discovery+ docuseries wants to leak your sex tape — and members of the public are lining up to bare all.

Well, almost all.

“Good Sex,” premiering Aug. 19, challenges couples to film their most intimate moments and then review them with a coach to see where they went wrong. The audience is shown snippets of the footage, with the couple’s most private parts blurred out. 

Caitlin V. Neal, a sex coach in her 30s who goes by Caitlin V, is at the heart of the show. She told The Post why she prefers the strip-down approach.

“When we are doing talk-based coaching sessions, I’m asking people to describe in words something that’s far beyond our ability to articulate: a sexual encounter,” she said. “Often, because people don’t have a shared baseline understanding, [talking] pales in comparison to being able to see that on video.”

She likes to watch

The series follows Caitlin V (the V being short for Victorious) through her workday, observing as she meets with a range of clients who come to her for help with intimacy issues, including mismatched libidos, trouble reaching orgasm and erectile dysfunction.

Before meeting, clients are asked to set up cameras in their bedrooms and have sex. Only then can the work really begin.

For Caitlin, watching other people’s sex tapes doesn’t feel weird or invasive: It’s about doing her job more thoroughly, not to mention efficiently.

“My goal is to find a neutral and compassionate base from which to receive information from them,” she said. “I want people left with a sense that whatever they’re going through in their own intimate lives is normal, and there is hope. It’s OK to seek help.”

She’s faking it

Wisconsin couple Erica, 37, and Thomas, 35, came to Caitlin because Erica was not able to reach climax during sex. When they looked over their tapes, Thomas observed himself and commented, “I need to slow down.” 

Caitlin also noted that, within the first few minutes, Erica was “moaning full volume, full force. I just know this has got to be part of a performance for her and not actually in response to what’s happening.”

Caitlin might not have seen the issue if she only had them describe their sex lives using words, she said, since Erica might not have admitted that her moans were fake. 

Through their session, Erica realized she was still grappling with issues of sexual shame and repression rooted in her strict church upbringing. To help her, she was given “homework” to examine herself in a mirror in order to become more comfortable with her sexuality.

Focus, people

In another episode, Caitlin meets with Los Angeles couple Ben, 48, and Annie, 40. They’ve been together for two years after meeting on a dating app; prior to that, they had each been married to their college sweethearts. So, neither Ben nor Annie has much sexual experience. In Ben’s marriage, “it was not common for us to have sex,” he said.

And so he was dismayed to discover that he has erectile dysfunction after he got divorced and began seeing Annie. 

When the threesome reviewed Ben and Annie’s footage, Caitlin noticed that they were interrupted by their dog and that Ben was focused on pleasing Annie and disregarding his own needs. That made it easier for her to help them eliminate distractions, which she said is one of the factors that contributes to the anxiety and stress that leads to ED. It also enabled her to give them instructions for an exercise that focused on Ben vocalizing his desires to Annie.

Hips don’t lie

The most common problem that couples seek her out for is what they assume is a case of mismatched libidos.

“That’s what they call it, but it’s a whole lot of different problems that are going on beneath the surface,” Caitlin said. “What looks like mismatched libidos might be that they don’t know how to arouse each other. Or, they haven’t been open with themselves about what they really desire.”

The list goes on — and on.

“It could be a problem with shame,” she said. “It could be a hormonal or chemical problem … But it shows up as one person wants to have sex more than the other. It could be that there’s resentment that has not been addressed. The interesting thing about our bodies is that they’re going to be the giveaway. They can’t lie.”

‘Worth a million words’

Alanna, 22, whose sex drive is lower than her boyfriend’s, Adam, 30, is one of the people who came on the show to get Caitlin’s help. She isn’t so sure about seeing herself — all of herself — on television.

“I don’t like watching myself on anything, never mind something so intimate. I think it will be rough,” she said. 

On-screen, Caitlin asks them to tell her what they notice when they watch their tape. 

“I’m not doing much, just laying there,” Alanna commented. “I’m definitely the aggressor in the situation,” Adam said. 

The tape helped the couple pinpoint what was wrong with their dynamic so that Caitlin could give them some exercises such as a sexy game of “red light, green light” that made Alanna the initiator.

“Being able to take control and tell him to come toward me or move away — I really enjoyed that,” she said.

‘Babylon’ stars Margot Robbie, Jean Smart fear deepfakes: ‘Year 3000 porn’

Published

on

Jean Smart and Margot Robbie aren’t so fond of advanced technology in Hollywood.

During promotion for the film “Babylon” — which documents the rise and fall of characters in 1920s Hollywood — the cast of the movie was asked what they believe will be the next big shift in Tinseltown.

In Entertainment Weekly’s “Around the Table” video series, almost all the actors who joined — including Robbie, Smart, Brad Pitt, Diego Calva, Jovan Adepo and Li Jun Li — agreed they were concerned about deepfakes.

Deepfakes use artificial intelligence to manipulate videos and replace the likeness of one person with another.

“Are they just going to take our faces, and we won’t even be going to work anymore?” Robbie, 32, said.

“So creepy,” Pitt, 59, chimed in.

Smart echoed the concern but pointed out that their likeness can be used even after they’re gone.

“Or after you’re dead, they’ll go, ‘Oh, let’s put Margot Robbie in that movie’ — a hundred years from now, having her doing God knows what. And your estate will have to sue them. It’ll be horrible, Margot,” the 71-year-old actress said.

The “Hacks” star continued saying that she’s troubled by seeing Marilyn Monroe in TV commercials and Fred Astaire in Coke commercials due to the technology in Hollywood — and said she will not be OK with her likeness being used after she’s dead.

“Unless my kids are getting rich off it. Of course. In that case, then it’s all right,” Smart quipped.

But there’s one thing that is absolutely off the table for Smart’s likeness.

“I don’t want to be in a year-3000 porn,” she added.

Meanwhile, some celebrities are already using deepfakes for projects.

Back in September, it was reported that an AI platform created a “digital twin” of Bruce Willis, who was diagnosed with aphasia — a brain disorder that affects his ability to communicate, which will allow him to appear on screen after his retirement from acting.

The “Die Hard” actor’s deepfake already made its debut in August 2021 when his face was “grafted” onto Konstantin Solovyov for a commercial for MegaFon, a Russian telecommunications company.

His estate has the final say on what’s created with his face.

Make-up free Erika Jayne shops for expensive Christmas gifts at luxury store Hermès in LA – amid the RHOBH star’s money woes

Erika Jayne went without makeup as she shopped in Los Angeles days before Christmas.

The fashionista was low-key as she wore a pair of oversized glossy black rectangle-shaped sunglasses. 

The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star – who has been battling money woes ever since her ex husband was declared bankrupt – was dressed expensively in a pale blue Alexander Wang sweatsuit and sneakers.

The platinum blonde beauty wore her locks bone straight, styled in an undefined part as they cascaded over her shoulders.

She looked cozy in her crew neck top and matching loose-fitting sweats, which she coordinated with pale pink and blue sneakers. 

Erika carried an Hermès bag on her arm as she carried a small, bottled water with pristinely manicured hands.

She was out and about by herself as she fit in some retail therapy two days before Christmas.

Last weekend Erika got into the holiday spirit as she attended a Christmas party with friend and costar Lisa Rinna.

Both women flaunted their long, toned legs as they wore dresses to the event hosted by friend Sanela Diana Jenkins.

Jayne took to Instagram to share a snapshot from the gathering in which she and Lisa kicked their legs up.

‘This was the BEST Christmas party EVER!!!’ she wrote in the caption as the photo showed her in a luxe white fur coat.

The fashion-forward socialite donned a pair of pointy-toe metallic purple heels as she sat in a chair designed to look like a sleigh.

Rinna was equally stylish in a cream blazer dress with a black satin collar and gold accoutrements set in a pattern.

She added a pair of knee-high black leather boots and carried a metallic gold clutch.

Erika finished her caption with a shoutout to Lisa as she wrote: ‘thanks for babysitting me and telling me what happened at the party.’
