A Complete History of My Sexual Failures (Channel 4, 11.15pm).

SINGLE documentary maker Chris Waitt attempts to discover why he is seemingly unable to sustain a lasting relationship, tracking down various ex-girlfriends to gain their insights into where it all went wrong.

He also embarks on a voyage of sexual discovery involving Viagra overdoses, a dominatrix, acupuncture and a stern telling off from his mother.

Well, if you get past the rather self-indulgent nature of the project and your own embarrassment factor, it's a hoot, even if there does feel something vaguely masochistic about Waitt's desperate need to understand his own failures.

You may get an unnerving glimpse into the mind of womenfolk, but you will definitely find yourself hiding behind the sofa when Waitt interviews his own mother.

It got terrific reviews, but many doubt the authenticity of the piece.

Either way, I'm guessing that the girls wont be flocking around Chris once they see his cringe-worthy performance in this albeit entertaining film.
