New ‘Masters of Sex’ Promos Reminds Us “There’s Nothing Polite About Making History”

The Masters of Sex teasers are rolling in and while they are all very much NSFW, they do offer up a tantalizing look at Showtime’s series about the famed human sexuality researchers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) who sparked the sexual revolution. So far, Showtime has unveiled two behind-the-scenes videos and one proper teaser, all of which you can find embedded below.

In the two behind-the-scenes videos, Caplan hints at the filming of a boudoir scene, while her co-star Nicholas D’Agosto previews an amusing scene he shares with Caplan wherein she politely informs him that “friends can kiss.” Finally, the teaser itself can be summed up nicely with its unapologetic tagline: “There’s nothing polite about making history.”

Do you think Masters of Sex looks daring or is it too risqué for your tastes? Let us know in the comments.
