Sex, Science and Chemistry Collide In Showtime’s New ‘Masters of Sex’ Teasers

As Masters of Sex‘s premiere date draws closer, Showtime is continuing to roll out tantalizing teasers that hint at both the revolutionary and salacious sides of their upcoming series about America’s first sex researchers.

The first teaser taps into the innuendo factor by showcasing Lizzy Caplan’s Virgina Johnson noting that she’s “about to give you the best sex…science can buy” before pulling away to reveal that’s she is holding a clipboard while observing two subjects alongside her partner William Masters (Michael Sheen). It’s a stylish and coy tactic that gives me hope that the series will possess a sense of humor while still fearlessly dramatizing two of America’s most ambitious scientific researchers. Meanwhile, the second teaser delves deeper into Johnson and Masters’ personalities. Watch them both below.
