A priest, a rabbi, a Buddhist monk, and the world's first African American Surgeon General appear in a documentary called Sticky: A (Self) Love Story. And don’t worry about your mind being in the gutter, because it totally is about masturbation.

The concept is simple: Nicholas Tana – an Arizona State University graduate and the film’s writer, producer, and director – went around interviewing more than 60 people – everyone from religious figures and academic types to sexologists and porn stars – to figure out just what the big deal is about masturbation, and why it’s such a taboo topic.

The result is the 72-minute Sticky: A (Self) Love Story, released appropriately enough on February 14, 2016. Billed as the “world’s first feature documentary on masturbation," the film approaches every ‘bate tale and myth in the book: People used to think masturbation would make you go blind; Alabama still outlaws the sale of sex toys; and Janeane Garofalo has some things to say, too.

Bring a date (or just go in alone) when Sticky screens at ASU Tempe on Tuesday, April 12, at 6:30 to 9 p.m. in Wrigley Hall, 800 Cady Mall in Tempe. The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required and seats are limited. You’re not catching it in May, which is Masturbation Month apparently, so maybe consider it a warm up.
