Adapted from a BBC miniseries of the same name, the American version of House Of Cards' debuted its 13-episode first series on Netflix all at once in 2013.
Kevin Spacey stars as Frank Underwood, a boundlessly ruthless politician who at the end of the second series becomes President Of The United States.
Most poignant of all was the contestant who admitted, “I played with myself all last night, trying to come up with something, but all I ended up with was this.” It was an isolated view of his scrotal sac, all puffed out to look like a brain.

In 2015, she was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in The Elephant Man.
Clarkson was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, the daughter of Jackie Clarkson (née Brechtel), a New Orleans politician and councilwoman, and Arthur Clarkson, a school administrator who worked at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine.
Still standing at attention is Puppetry of the Penis, the most unusual show about an organ since Phantom of the Opera.
