'Felt' On Logo TV: Puppets Act Out Real Sex Therapy Sessions On New Show

Posted: Updated:

If you told us that we would voluntarily listen to another couple's therapy session and wouldn't feel uncomfortable doing it, we wouldn't believe you.

Enter the new Logo series "Felt," a reality show about sex therapy that uses the audio from real therapy sessions but replaces the people with puppets.

“We wanted to create a show about therapy, but we wanted to take the pain out of watching people talk about their sex lives,” Micah Fitzerman-Blue, an executive producer of the series, told The New York Times. Having puppets play the participants also allowed the 24 real couples to open up without compromising their anonymity (the therapy was paid for in exchange for the permission to record).

The series includes gay and lesbian couples, a Christian couple in their 20s and a couple in their sixties.

While television -- not to mention the Internet -- abounds with sex advice and while a type of sex therapy -- sex surrogacy -- was chronicled in the film "The Sessions," the creators of "Felt" claim it's the first program to let let viewers in on real sex therapy sessions.

"Felt showcases real stories in a way that has never been done before," Brent Zacky, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development of Logo, told NewNowNext.

Will you watch the show? Or -- puppets aside -- does the subject matter make you uncomfortable?
