As our culture steadily progresses in becoming a more sexually-accepting society, one documentary dares to have the courage to take on one of the last remaining taboos: Good-ole' masturbation.

"Sticky: A (Self) Love Story," directed by Nicholas Tana, wishes to wipe clean the generations of misconceptions (hairy palms, blindness, etc.) and the general social embarrassment regarding the subject, instead revealing the act to be mankind's greatest dirty little secret. 

The film covers topics from multiple prospectives, grabbing interviews with several political activists, porn stars, sexologists, priests and rabbis. Subjects include Larry Flynt, the founder of Hustler, and comedian Jeanne Garofalo.

Describing his work, Tana notes, "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. 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. Check out the exclusive trailer above and a new poster below.
