The Showtime Original Series Masters of Sex mastered the art of reflecting emotions through sexual intercourse on screen. Masters of Sex debuted in 2013, and lasted four full seasons before its cancellation. The series starred Michael Sheen(Dr. William Masters) and Lizzie Kaplan(Virginia Johnson) as the two who fell in love while studying human sexual response.
Official Synopsis: “William Masters and Virginia Johnson are known as pioneers of the science of human sexuality. Their research shoots them to fame on a trajectory that takes them from humble beginnings in the Midwest to the cover of Time magazine. Masters is a brilliant scientist who is out of touch with his own feelings. Johnson is a divorced mother who is ahead of her time on many fronts, including her determination to have a meaningful career. The pair’s relationship isn’t just professional, as it evolves into a three-way “marriage” with Masters’ wife, Libby. “Masters of Sex” is based on Thomas Maier’s book of the same name, which profiled the pair.“
