Jill: “Have you ever wondered what it was like to have sex with him?” Natasha: “Yes and he has too.” Jill: “Is that your sex face? That's your sex face. Do you want to see mine? Watch, you can see mine now."Jill begins moaning in the massage chair and screams "Oh, yes!"
Jill: “Isn't that great, now let's see your sex face.” Jill: “Call out her name, ‘Natasha.’” Man: “Oh, Natasha!” Jill: “They're gonna have sex tonight.”It’s laughable to claim that this is serious relationship help. In another scene, she ambushes a young woman in a bridal shop and really gets to the heart of her relationship problems by asking deep, probing questions, like, “So is [your African-American boyfriend] well hung?” and, “Has anyone done, you know, S&M?” Because, well, why wouldn’t that be the first thing you ask a person you’ve just met? This isn't even the most tawdry of the content. There's also numerous “f-bombs,” vulgar slang references to oral sex, the list goes on… And it was all rated as appropriate for your 14-year-old. Jill Dictrow might be a licensed credentialed professional, but she doesn’t do her profession credit by carrying-on as she does on this show, which puts the advice she dispenses on about the same level as friends dishing about their love lives over lunch or cocktails – except that even there, there’s a preexisting relationship, and a basis of mutual trust and understanding. TLC used to be better than this. It can be again. But not if they continue to air schlock-and-awe programming like Sex in Public.
