This is probably the most fair and unbiased shot the subject is gonna get in any sort of mainstream-ish setting (or anywhere outside of its community for that matter). At first, it's hard to believe these interviews aren't some sort of spoof, but it only sounds that way because you don't expect these folks to candidly discuss their lifestyle like that. You realize they are doing it not just because they are some combination of unattractive and promiscuous in a rural setting (I am not trying to be a jerk, this is more or less explicitly stated in interviews), but because they deeply believe that what they are doing is true to who they are and to the love they feel - regardless of how other humans may judge them. We also hear from some behavioral experts (human ones, I mean), and it briefly touches upon the history of the practice throughout the ages.
The central question posed by the documentary, however, remains unresolved.
No, it's not about the morality of this practice. The mere invocation of the horrors of modern consumer industrial agriculture ought to settle the question of the comparative evils of the various forms of human dominion over the animal kingdom. No, the question is why does society (still) condemn the practice with such fervor? Apart from some vague musings at the end, and a bit of an explanation through historical context, this question remains woefully under-examined.
But it's all still worth it to hear some guy's wife talk about letting her future husband watch her go at it with a pony on their very first date, and other great dialogue in that vein.
