"The Sessions" movie quotes follow along as a paralyzed poet decides to lose his virginity and seeks out a sex surrogate. The independent drama earned praise at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival including receiving the Audience Award and US Dramatic Special Jury Prize.

In "The Sessions," Mark O'Brien (John Hawkes) is a 38-year-old man who was paralyzed and confined to an iron lung after contracting polio as a child. Having never been with a woman, Mark decides that it's time to lose his virginity. With the support of his priest, Father Brendan (William H. Macy), Mark finds a sex surrogate to help him. A sex surrogate is not a prostitute but does provide sexual contact as a technique in order to achieve a therapeutic goal.

Mark begins seeing sex surrogate Cheryl Cohen Greene. At first he's highly nervous but after he gets to know Cheryl a bit more during their sessions he starts to loosen up and come to really adore Cheryl.

"The Sessions" is based on a true story but for something a bit more fictional, check out other great movies such as "Alex Cross," "Smashed," "Sinister," "Seven Psychopaths," "Argo," "Here Comes the Boom," "The Paperboy," "Taken 2," "Frankenweenie," "Butter," "Won't Back Down," and "Looper."

    Cheryl: "So"
    Mark: "Your money's on the desk over there."
    Cheryl: "Yes it is. Thank you."
    Mark: "That was the wrong way to start off."
    Cheryl: "That really was. Shall we start again?"
    Mark: "Please, you start."
    Cheryl: "Although the aim is for us to have sex, I'm not a prostitute. You don't have to pay me up front. I have nothing against prostitutes but there's a difference. We can talk about that later."
    Mark: "I'm sorry"
    Cheryl: "The other is, there's a limit to the number of sessions we can have. Did Laura mention that when you saw her?"
    Mark: "Uh, I'm sorry, I don't remember."
    Cheryl: "The limit is six but that gives us plenty of opportunity to explore... So, I understand you're able to have an erection."
    Mark: "Yes, but not by choice."
    Cheryl: "Do you know how many men there are that would give anything for a natural erection? Is this your place?"
    Mark: "No, it's a friend's. The only bedroom furniture I have at my place is an iron lung. I've been wondering maybe about possibly buying a futon, you know, in case the need arose."
    Cheryl: "Might be worth thinking about"
    Mark: "I've the space I think. It can be expensive though and I... futon, you know how much do you think a good one would cost?"
    Cheryl: "Mark, take a deep breath... and let go."
    Mark: "Do I seem anxious?"
    Cheryl: "You do a little."

    When Mark and Cheryl, his sex surrogate, meet for the first time, things are a bit awkward and don't exactly go so well. Cheryl however acts professionally and tries her best to make the very anxious Mark at ease.
