In a time tested game of "anything we can do, Japan can do weirder," they've just come out with a late night sexy TV show called Orgasm Wars, and be warned, it is not as fun as it sounds. The show centers around a straight porn star essentially fighting an orgasm as a gay man goes down on him. Fun, huh? 

All immediate alarm bells to do with consent and cultural messages aside, this is far from the first unusual late night sex-related show to make it on air, and it's worth noting Orgasm Wars stands a chance of not being the weirdest. Which is something we should really consider when evaluating. Take a look at what else is out there.

'Orgasm Wars': Japan

I know I know, I synopsized Orgasm Wars already, but you really have to watch a clip to understand the hype. You only have to watch a flamboyant, fat Japanese man say, "He has the right shape penis for me to make him come" once to understand that life, late night television, and that poor porn star will never be the same again.

'Cathouse': U.S.A

H.B.O's documentary on a legal brothel called The Ranch were such a hit that they brought back the ladies of the Ranch for an entire series, and it's sort of sexual, sort of interesting, and sort of confusing all at the same time. Let me tell ya, understanding the ins and outs of how a brothel runs makes you really not want to ever have to experience the old in-and-out at a brothel.

'Sex Box': UK

Now according to the show's description on 4OD, the network that runs it, Sex Box is actually meant to combat the effects of porn on pop culture, which is admirable, but like... the show has a couple go into a sex box (get it? get it?), do the dirty, come out and immediately, in front of a studio audience and sexperts, discuss what happened in the sex box. It's like realizing your roommate was in while you had loud amazing sex, except the roommate is a room full of strangers, and they probably spent all the time you were in there picturing what you were doing in detail. Blegh.

'Eurotrash': France

Eurotrash put pseudo-sexy late night shows on the map with it's eclectic mix of drag queens, porn stars, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Leave it to the French to invent a show that mixed pretty much all my favorite types of people into one delicious, naughty mix!

'Bailando por un Sueño': Argentina

Argentina's version of Dancing With The Stars is all fun and games until the controversial categories of "Strip dance" and "pole dance" come up, at which point it promptly turns into a writhing, gyrating mess full of nipple pasties, also, did we mention writhing? Only watch some if you're totally willing to have your innocence and zest for Dancing With the Stars completely subverted.
