This is one of the most famous episodes in this show’s history and, arguably, one of the most famous of the entire 1980’s, thanks to a dweeby serial bigamist imparting an incredible sexual technique to Stewart Markowitz, which guarantees his partner incredible orgasms. There is however, one very big logical flaw in the script. Stewart finds out that this bald, nebbishy, dumpy guy has all these super-model hot ex wifes, all of whom praise him to high heaven in the bedroom department! The problem is this: How on God’s green earth did this guy even get to talk to these women, let alone get them to marry him? There is no way they would even give him the time of day in a bar, let alone sleep with him. Did he come on with, “Hey Babe, I am the master of an obscure sexual technique which I guarantee is going to give you multiple orgasms beyond your wildest dreams, just sleep with me to find out!” Yeah right! Like that is ever going to happen in this lifetime! All in all it was a cute episode and speculation on the Venus Butterfly technique was rampant for weeks (in the pre-internet days).
