Real Sex is a documentary television series broadcast on and a production of HBO.[1] As its name implies, Real Sex is a sexually explicit "magazine" which "explores sex '90s style."[2][3]

Real Sex (dubbed the "60 Minutes of sex") explores human sexuality, Gary R. Edgerton and Jeffrey P. Jones described the fare in The Essential HBO Reader as "a peek into the diversity of sexual activities...with an emphasis that ranges from the unusual to the bizarre." The show typically explores three to four topics each episode. Segments are separated by street interviews with random people, relating to the episode's topics.[4]

The last Real Sex episode aired in 2009. Older episodes as well as "best-of" episodes are frequently re-aired during late nights on HBO.[5]

It spawned a spin-off series called Pornucopia.

The series is being retitled, SEX // NOW, and returning in January 2014. [1]
