‘Couple’s Therapy’ wife plans ‘birthday orgy,’ husband ditches it

Perhaps an orgy was too much of a crowd.

“Couple’s Therapy” viewers are astonished at a husband who flew solo to Italy for his birthday, all while his wife was planning his dream orgy as a gift.

Philadelphia-based Annie and Mau are one of four couples on the Showtime reality series “Couple’s Therapy,” which shows struggling marriages remedied by therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik.

During one session, in particular, the duo brought up a past celebration from years prior when Mau canceled his birthday bash — yes, the orgy — because it was “too meticulously planned.”

Instead, he ditched the fetish-fantasy fete, which would have included threesomes, a dominatrix and even costumes, and fled to Italy by himself, sans-wife.

“I have been unsuccessful for 20 years and two years ago I pulled out all the stops,” Annie said in the third episode, which aired in the UK on BBC2, revealing the kinky soiree. “He said to me that I was barking up the wrong tree and I wasn’t listening and wasn’t getting it.”

While she tried to convince Mau to “wait for the weekend,” he demanded the party be canceled, searched for his passport and jetted abroad.

His reasoning? He wanted “zero responsibility” and “spectacular, enthusiastic and genuine” sex without putting in work. The orgy, he added in his bewildering confession, was ruined by all his wife’s planning beforehand.

“With the birthday, for example, she was putting in all this effort,” he said of the festivities. “The things she was doing are the things she could imagine I would want if she was never paying attention.”

The confessions gripped viewers, who debated whether he deserves “overnight infamy” or is a total “idiot.”

“Mau’s disappointed, not devastated, because his wife didn’t arrange his birthday orgy exactly the way he imagined it. Respect to therapist. How do you keep a straight face?” tweeted one adamant watcher.

One therapist chimed in, saying they had worked with clients like Mau and they “were all exhausting.”

While viewers were shocked at his sexual desires and high expectations, Mau claimed he’s “easy” to please.

“I don’t have complicated needs,” he said on the show. “I am utterly transparent and completely communicative about what I want and am also totally consistent. I am the easiest person to deal with.”
