When Will Hunting Bigfoot Programming Take On “Sex and the Single Sasquatch”?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 21st, 2012

When will programs about Bigfoot deal with “Sex and the Single Sasquatch“? Will reality television even touch it?


Is Cliff Barackman of Finding Bigfoot pondering this too?

This is a major topic in Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, in the chapter “Sex and the Single Sasquatch,” as well as in  The Field Guide to Bigfoot and Other Mystery Primate.

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    that should certainly bump up the ratings.

    Just reread (for the 1000th time), Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America. This is one of my favorite Loren Coleman books. Each chapter stands alone as a great essay (in case you don’t have time to read cover to cover). It is a perfect companion and goes with me wherever I go. It places Bigfoot in the context of history, pop-culture, sexuality, early researchers, and much more.

    The same day they can show frontal nudes in daytime soap operas, like they do in Brazil.

    Allow me to elaborate:

    American television is very prude, even among cable networks. The shows dealing with Fortean phenomena are run in family-oriented channels, so I don’t see History channel or Animal Planet running a program daring to discuss the sex life of hairy hominds anytime soon.

    That said, there’s been a recent change in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy realm where nudity is incorporated —Game of Thrones, True Blood— so maybe we might see a more adult approach in Fortean programming.

    You just have to convince some HBO exec that Sexy Sasquatch could be as big as The Sopranos. ;)

    Let me add some clarifications for our friend from Mexico, RPJ. He writes:

    Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, True Blood, and all programs on cable network (HBO, Cinemax, Starz, Showtime, etc.) in the USA have been rather open with profanity, nudity, and sexual situations for years. It was on Cinemax you may recall where Sweet Prudence was recently screened.

    The documentary channels (Travel, NatGeo, History, Discovery, Animal Planet, Outdoor, etc.) as well as the mainstream channels (ABC, Fox, CBS, NBC, and PBS) are the one that most people get on their basic television viewing plans. These are the ones which are not yet open to any in-depth discussions of Sasquatch breeding, sexual behavior, and gender diversity issues.

    Well, who knows. When those Animal Planet dudes run out of ideas, and the American public stop being so damn concerned with same-sex marriages, we may yet to see the day when Queer Eye for the Squatch Guy —starring Bobo & RuPaul— turns into the #1 television program of all time. :P
