BULLSHIT goes on the prowl for virgins! We meet women - and men! - who are saving themselves for marriage. We find out -what the hell for? Then, there's sex education! We find out if it is helping them screwor screwing them up. And we get really revved up about teaching abstinence only! We meet an expert who encourages multiple sex partners before settling down. He has proof that sex reduces stress and it releases endorphins that make us feel good. The cherry on the top of our cherry is a visit to a masturbation clinic. Now we're talking sex education! We'll also meet up with the former US Surgeon General, Dr. Jocelyn Elders. She was fired for advocating masturbation as an alternative to sexual intercourse to prevent STDS, and that's BULLSHIT.

Season 4 Episode 10 of Penn & Teller: Bullshit! resulted in a 0.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Penn & Teller, the 'bad boys of magic' known for exposing exactly how magic tricks are done, take it to the masses in this hot Showtime series.
Penn and Teller not only investigate how frauds, cons, charlatans and even officials in government operate, but they offer it with an easy to understand step by step discovery.
In past episodes, the myth of lack of landfill space on the planet made for heated debates everywhere. Undercover, hidden camera reports are included in the series with the typical Penn & Teller humor added. While Penn (the one who not just talks, but frequently yells) slams the scams and exposes the truth behind the media and hard sell, he seems genuinely concerned about protecting people from untruths. Even though a staunch atheist, he is gentle and even compassionate when addressing the frauds that abound in the religious realm, including faith healers and miracle makers.
The series is peppered with nudity, foul language and possibly some of their own motivations, but it's informative, innovative and most certainly one of the most 'real' of reality shows.
