Heavy Petting 



Exploration of the sexual mores of the ’50s as seen through the eyes of a generation that lived through the Sexual Revolution. Creative baby boomers — including musician David Byrne, performance artist Spalding Gray, comedian Sandra Bernhard, radical activist Abbie Hoffman and poet Allen Ginsberg — candidly recall their sexual coming-of-age tales in intimate interviews. The film blends humorous footage of unhelpful sex ed videos with classic snippets of The Wild One and Elvis’ hip gyrations, not to mention Bernhard talking about playing “doctor,” a less-than-straight Ginsberg on a disastrous encounter with a girl and Byrne on the childhood myths of masturbation. 97 minutes.

DVD INFO: Includes extended celebrity interviews, an interview with the director and extra archival footage.
