Masters Of Sex – Three Reasons Why You Have TO Watch This Show

MV5BMjMxNzE1NzY2NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTk5ODMxMDE@._V1_SY317_CR4,0,214,317_I don’t think a lot of people know about a little show I like to call Masters Of Sex because the handful of people I’ve told about it all return my enthusiasm with blank stares.

So far they’ve only shot one season but are in the process of shooting season two which will probably air later this year. From what I can tell season one was pretty well received which is weird because no one’s seen it.

My advice is get your filthy mitts on it as soon as humanly possible, wait for a rainy weekend and smash the whole season in two days. Here’s why…

Reason 1 to watch Masters Of Sex

It’s called MASTERS OF SEX, so yeah. There is a lot of sex in it.

It’s based on the true story of the first doctor to conduct sex studies back in the 50s when people knew very little about sex, especially when it came to what women experience during sex and why they experience it.

Expect lots of masturbation and sex with people wearing all kinds of wires and weird contraptions. And Lizzy Caplan naked. A lot.

Fun times!



Reason 2 to watch Masters Of Sex

Interestingly, though sex if the focal point of the series, it never descends into the pure smut of a show like Californication which, after season 3, just became a ridiculous parody of what started out as a good series.

On the contrary, Masters Of Sex perfectly balances the naughty bits with some meaty intellectual fare and compelling drama so you don’t feel like a weird pervy weirdo watching people wired up to machines having sex.



Reason 3 to watch Masters Of Sex

The series starts well, has a few moments in the early episodes that keep you coming back for more, but if I could give one piece of advice it would be don’t ditch the series until you’ve watched up until episode 6.

After that episode, the show takes an insane turn and hooks you right to the end. Damnit people! Just watch the damn show so we can talk about it ok?

That’s all I can really say about Reason 3 without giving too much away.



Watch it, come back to this post and leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Or don’t. I’m just interested to see if anyone else finds this show as hectic as I did.



Daddy Blogger! Hahaha! Never!

nelsonYeah, that last one was an April Fools Winking smile 

From the perspective of making this site more attractive to marketers, attracting more advertising revenue and establishing a devoted base of readers, becoming a Daddy Blogger would certainly be the smart move, but since when have I ever made a “smart move”?

I know that earlier post caused a lot of uproar with countless people on Twitter shouting from the rooftops that I’d “sold out” turned into “a softie” or just plain “gone mad”, but I assure you none of those sentiments are true (except for going mad. “All work and no play…”).

I do have something planned for the site going forward though, but more of this in another post.

For now you can all rest easy knowing that this site will remain, as it always has, basically unreadable and relevant to no one.




The Death Of SlickTiger, The Birth Of Papa Slick

1560429_10153705679445099_1975768195_nThe future of this site is something that plagues me almost daily. I’ve spent nearly five years blogging on this platform and have gone through a rollercoaster of ups and downs trying to figure out what this site is.

Over the years, that’s become one of my least favourite questions to be asked, “So you’re a blogger? What’s your blog about?” To which I sheepishly reply, “I dunno… stuff…?”

It’s the biggest strength and weakness of this site. It isn’t about anything. Well, that’s all about to change boys and girls because, following the positive response I’ve gotten from the posts about The Cub, from now on will officially become a Daddy-blog.

I’m speaking to a couple of the designers at work about a complete overhaul of this site to be more parent-friendly. No more grey and dark grey colours, no more header image of redneck dudes slugging it out.

To be honest, the new focus and direction will be a welcome one. I think The Cub is the most incredible little person ever put on God’s green earth, so writing about what she gets up to everyday will be a breeze.



I’ll also be sharing my insights about what being a Dad is like because what I’ve quickly come to realise is that there is a staggering lack of content that’s being written at the moment from a man’s perspective when it comes to parenthood.

People take for granted that men aren’t as affected by parenthood as women are and I can tell you right now, that’s a total load of horse-poop.

Men are just hopeless at expressing themselves (generally) which is where I come in.

Of course the new change will also come with a subtle change in the tone of writing on this site and (thank God!) there will be no more “Klapping Gym” posts because a) I think I’ve done them to DEATH and b) Klapping Gym has no place on a blog about parenthood.

So I hope you’re as excited about this new journey as I am! I know one person who’s super excited about it, can you guess who it is?



Here’s to a Brave New World for your Tiger pal and a definitive answer to the awkward question, “What’s your site about?”
