Sex Customs in Rome and New York

25 percent of requests in web search  engines have got pornography as a topic and sex is absolutely the most browsed word. How have sexual habits changed during the Internet era?

Sexual Radar tries to give an answer to those questions. It’s a surreal-grotesque comedy written in three weeks time by Luca Martera, after five months of bibliographic research (including essays, daily newspapers, chronicle and custom magazines) and field research through investigations, interviews and witnesses collected from people based in Rome and New York City of every age, various sexual orientations and preferences, about those which once were called perversions, and today psychiatry would rather call "paraphilias": a series of healthy-safe-and-agreed sexual practices, for which is difficult to establish the border between the lawful-allowed and the pathological-immoral.

Sexual Radar investigates this gray area to understand if it’s true that the world is not divided between normal and abnormal people, but between individuals with common and rare sexual habits.

From the content’s point of view, Sexual Radar faces a risky topic as sex, through an ironic sight, but never annoying or rude, always speaking about universal emotions and feelings, as what is told are real stories and people usual troubles. Everything is done through a never cheering and accommodating style, but always a smart and disenchanted one, that takes inspiration from real facts in the present time for every episode: mobbing and stalking, slander through social networks, online dating, web addiction because of gambling, etc.

The main character in this film is Henry, a funny and misogynist international detective specialized in finding the “right cause” to make annoying and lazy employees. Because of an accident during a session of “financial domination”, Henry discovers to be able to listen to people’s sexual preferences and fantasies. Here's some examples catched by his Sexual Radar:

©LM 1 - Men are all childish bitches. They want to have sex without condom, like grandpa they still believe in pulling and praying.

©LM 2 - I much prefer women with an amputated limb, but I like also those without a brain more.

©LM 3 -  My husband used to shoot off his rifle when I came. But now, goodbye orgasms... that idiot has been arrested for shooting my mother-in-law. She was spying us.

©LM 4 - It's so much fun hiding my genitals in my groin; I become a woman without surgery.

©LM 5 -Tonight dinner by candlelight: no romanticism, just hot wax drops on my chest.
