“Sticky: A (Self) Love Story” | A Documentary About Masturbation #HairyPalms


“Sticky” is everything your mother was too embarrassed to tell you about masturbation, in one stimulating documentary. Full of candid interviews from celebrated figures to everyday people, health care professionals, sex therapists, zoologists, anthropologists, and religious figures, this feature length doc answers age-old questions like: What is masturbation? Will it make me go blind? Is it “normal”? Is it wrong? And why are we so afraid to be caught in the act? In a world where confusion about sexuality remains at the root of so many societal problems – rape, sexual abuse, and the threat of sexually transmitted diseases – “Sticky” will help shatter misconceptions and myths surrounding this intimate aspect of human sexuality. stickythemovie.com

“Making this movie was a real challenge; it took nearly a decade… It’s a touchy subject that affects us all, especially with technology blurring the lines between what is sex and what is masturbation,” Tana told Indiewire in an official statement. “As a filmmaker, I feel as if most documentaries these days repeat the same theme or subject matter. This is not another documentary on climate change, but it is a subject that touches us all.”

“Sticky: A (Self) Love Story” will be released through Vision Films on February 1
