Sex in Real Life by Madeline Shann
After various mishaps, misunderstandings and overdue revelations, I could not help but take the countries’ feckless attempts at sex education personally, and felt it was time to intervene.
Navigating the world of sex in the age of (mis)information, Sex In Real Life (excerpts) reimagines sex ed for the 21st century with brutally honest writing, explosive physicality and anarchic comedy.
This is a frank, funny and furious show about the things you’re not told and have to find out the hard way. About living up to the hype. About being who you are and figuring out what you want. | @
Just Don’t Do It by Beside Ourselves
Modern female sexuality and Christianity: are they as uncomfortable bed fellows as they appear to be and does ‘Just Don’t Do It’ sum up the church’s attitude to pre-marital sex?
Coupling survey responses with our own experiences, our unconscious imagery and clown states, we explore the lives of modern Christian women grappling with the church’s teaching on sex, celibacy and female sexuality; the confusing, the painful, the funny. | @
Ma, Am I Good In Bed? by Double B Theatre
Some things you should only ever say to your sister.
The Duffy girls grew up in a sexualised world. They wanted to be sexy. They wanted to be good at sex. When they got to the age where they actually started having sex they quickly realised they were neither sexy, nor particularly good at it. To their dismay, the world of sex was bloody complicated. From the bizarre to the beastly, the Duffy’s revisit their sexistory in unabashed, unfiltered detail. Ma, Am I Good In Bed? is a hilarious and honest conversation between two sisters who just really fucking need each other. | @
Binary by Philippa Mannion
Our world is full of possibilities and potentials. So many people and different combinations and positions. An exploration of polyamory, bisexuality and threesomes, with a bit of computer science on the side. | @
