In her new show “Liebe, Sex und goop”, the actress not only wants to talk about her own sex sewing box, but also mith the support of therapists to help other couples have a better love life.
“We have sex. It’s a show about sex. We’ll talk about sex,” promises Gwyneth Paltrow in the trailer for her new series. From October 21, 2021 “Liebe, Sex und goop” will start on Netflix, the second show by the actress for the streaming service after “The Goop Lab” via her lifestyle and wellness brand “Goop”.
Five couples who want to polish up their sex life meet five therapists who want to help them with various techniques. One couple confesses that they are about to get divorced, another that sex is a duty like brushing teeth for a man.
The five therapists show five different ways to supposedly more fulfilling sex. The “somatic sexologist” Jaiya and her partner perform an orgasm without direct physical contact. It is said that it only climaxes through currents of energy. Another therapist shows claws like those from the Marvel mutant Wolverine as sex toys.
“Love, Sex and Goop explores what it means to be really intimate in a relationship: expressing your deepest fears and desires and accepting those of your partner,” Paltrow said in a press release. “The show is a toolbox for finding more joy and connection in our romantic lives. And it’s full of lessons I would have liked to have learned years ago.”
Through her lifestyle brand “Goop”, Paltrow has already released a $ 75 candle that is supposed to smell like her vagina – to remove the taboo on female sexuality. “Goop” is repeatedly criticized because of the accusation of pseudoscience, the ineffectiveness or even harmfulness of some products.
