Season 6 episodes (8)

1 Cheaters
70 percent of Australian marriages will experience an affair, according to Sexual Health Australia - but not all will be found out. This group bravely take a seat to face some harsh questions sent in from the public.
2 Ex-Football Players
Ex-Footballers Willie Mason, Ian Roberts, Dean Widders and Dan Jackson join Todd Carney, Brock McLean and Jude Bolton to shed the media-trained responses and get real about the game they love - with all its complexities.
3 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
According to SANE Australia, roughly 1 in 50 Australians have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. People with OCD want others to know it's so much more than washing hands or keeping a clean desk.
4 Amputees
These eight amputees all have remarkable stories to share about perception and embracing a new version of themselves - the challenges they've faced and what they've gained through their limb loss.
5 Families Of Missing Persons
There are over 2600 Australians listed as long-term missing persons, according to the National Missing Persons Coordination Network. Is it better for someone you love to be missing or dead? Their answers might surprise you.
6 Lesbians
We meet nine empowered women who talk about what it's like to be a lesbian, the fascination and fetishisation of what they do in the bedroom, and what life is like when your world isn't centred around men.
7 Chinese Australians
Despite over 200 years of migration history, many Chinese-Australians continue to feel othered, still having to prove that they belong. We meet 8 Chinese-Australians, all with very different stories.
8 Adult Virgins
Opportunity, rural life, religion, asexuality - there are plenty of reasons for people to be virgins into their adult life. These Australians explore social milestones, pressures, hopes, dreams and the need for intimacy.

Best show on TV. A perfect example of the NEED for the ABC to be fully funded & protected from attacks by conservative governments.
