Senior Staff Writer
@AedanJuvetPopwrapped was recently invited to the set of the critically acclaimed Showtime series, Masters of Sex coinciding with the show's DVD and Blu-ray release. The show tells the story of William Masters and Virginia Johnson whose dedication to the study of sex sparked a "sexual revolution." As an extreme fan of the 50's based sexually charged drama, I felt immediately overjoyed at the chance to attend. From the moment I stepped on the mesmerizing Sony Pictures lot, I was welcomed by every staff member that I managed to come into contact with, and any nerves I felt depleted almost instantly.
Make sure to pick up season one before the all new second season begins this summer! I promise that you will not be disappointed. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
