The author of one of them and give interviews on issues of the day. Some experts have a very strange impression and is similar to those of psychiatrists, looking at which I think that it is crying a mental hospital. Even a monkey and a dog doing “shameful occupation”. Based on conversations and observations, the authors try to articulate what’s wrong with Masturbation? The tan was a child was laughed at when he admitted that he “loves himself”, and Acosta was raised in a strict Catholic environment. For the film they were going for about 10 years, overcoming mistrust and prejudices. Not only did they talk to their heroes about the benefits and dangers of Masturbation, but the final was kicked in the forehead question: do they do this? And here are the answers: “Sometimes I do” “No! Haha. Yes.” Talking heads alternate with each other, sounds like a refrain, the word “Masturbation”, a chorus of voices recites it in every way.
