The documentary "The Nature of Existence"

There’s a new documentary out this summer from the director of TREKKIES  called THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE (it opens tomorrow in NY at The Quad Cinemas), in which various philosophers, history scholars, religious leaders and fanatics from all over the world are asked tough questions about the purpose of human beings on Earth. The filmmaker has several clips online, and of course, being Naked Love contributors, we’re drawn to the sex-related ones, like the clip with the confrontational Evangelical singing an anti-gay song on a college campus (positively antiquated, and what the director calls “the oddest moment of making” the movie) and the medley of thoughts on premarital sex (if you can get through the cheesy New Age music, listen for the creepiest description of a threeway between a husband, his wife and God). There are some more serious, thought-provoking clips, too — for instance, the interview with the professor who teaches “Physics for Poets” is absolutely fascinating.
