‘You watch porn. Right? You don’t have to tell us. That’s not what this is about.’
Pornography is all around us, and the amount we watch is growing at an exponential rate and as access to it increases, so does our unwillingness to talk about it.
This production uses an interactive blend of storytelling, poetry and science to examine how pornography affects our mental health, relationships and sexual experiences.
Devised from interviews with porn advocates, addicts, mental health experts and scientists, these unique stories are told through four intertwining narratives; George, a Gameboy wielding teenage boy; Gary, a father lost in the depths of his own addiction; pioneering porn producer Gail and Retrospect, an ex-porn addict who wants you to understand.
