blind date

Blind Date is a sexual experiment that puts two people in an unusual situation and wants to find out what consequences this has for their sexual experience. In the series Blind Date, director Adrineh Simonian of Arthouse Vienna consistently pursues the basic idea of a meeting between strangers. The people involved, who will have sex with each other, have never seen each other before, have never spoken and know nothing about each other.
However, she adds a spicy detail to the situation: they will not be able to see each other during the sexual act either, because they are blindfolded. They are deprived of the culturally most important sense and reduced to their sense of hearing, smell and touch. How they handle this is solely the result of the chemistry between the participants and their unique dynamics. They are questioned separately before and immediately after the encounter when they take off their masks.
It's an experiment in the psychology of sex. In this series Arthouse Vienna compares the expectations and thoughts of these people before the experiment with their experience and perception of this exceptional situation and shows the course of this unique encounter.
