TLC to also Premiere New Documentary LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX on April 9 at 10 PM ET/PT

(New York, NY) - TLC brings viewers back into the bedroom with a second season of STRANGE SEX on Sunday, April 3 at 10PM ET/PT. This captivating series explores mysterious conditions, unusual fetishes and the kinky science behind sexual attraction. STRANGE SEX candidly exposes individuals who are willing to break their silence and divulge the obstacles, frustrations and embarrassment they must face as they cope with their sexual conditions. The network has ordered 10 half-hour episodes. Season 1 premieres of STRANGE SEX averaged 1.2 million P2+ viewers.

In each episode of STRANGE SEX, viewers are introduced to a variety of sexual conditions which can be debilitating to a person's relationship and lifestyle. The second season continues to follow fascinating individuals such as Samira and Firas, a young Muslim couple who decide to wait until their wedding night to have sex, only to realize that a strange condition has made it impossible for them to consummate their marriage. Their frustration and anger nearly leads to the break-up of their marriage until they discover an unconventional form of therapy as a last resort.

In the premiere episode, viewers are introduced to Ron, a typical suburban husband and father who used to enjoy a robust sex life with his wife, however he's now found it impossible to climax. Research leads him to conclude that he would have more sensitivity if he could find a way to regrow his foreskin. The new season also profiles Kelly, a woman born with two vaginas who must come to terms with the possibility of not having children.

On Saturday, April 9 at 10 PM ET/PT, TLC will also premiere the hour-long documentary LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX. Directed by James Houston, the special takes a fresh, raw, and confronting look at attitudes towards sex and sexuality among America's youth, as well as the differences between Europe and America when it comes to adolescent sexuality. Using revealing interviews, modern-day statistics and archival materials, LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX paints a picture of American youth navigating the minefield of living in a sexualized culture.

Every day, 10,000 young Americans catch a sexually transmitted disease, 2400 young girls get pregnant, and 55 young people are infected with HIV. Traveling through the US, the Australian-born Houston goes on a journey to understand common trends with sex and sexuality, and profiles young Americans who share their personal perspectives, including:

· Ashley, a high school prom queen from Atlanta GA. After she and her friends took a virginity pledge at the age of 15, six girls became pregnant. Ashley is now in a sexually active relationship.

· Jon, a college sophomore from Amherst MA, currently studying in Los Angeles, serves as a guide to college "hook up" culture.

· Grant and Max, both from Phoenix AZ. Grant is a microbiology researcher. Max contracted the HIV virus from having unprotected sex at the age of 17. They currently reside in Baltimore where Max is enrolled in law school.

· At a high school for pregnant teens in Los Angeles, young girls are contemplating motherhood.

· In Washington, D.C., where HIV infection rates rival those in several African countries, community outreach workers are trying to save lives.

STRANGE SEX is produced by Sirens Media for TLC.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX is produced by Neal Weisman.
