Let’s talk about sex, maybe? Or, maybe not? After having radically different experiences with Sex Ed, Lindsay and Lea try to figure out exactly what they were supposed to learn, why they didn’t, and where they go from here! A fun, sometimes silly, sometimes serious look at all things Sex Ed, and the many things they really wish they’d learned about before The Big Event. When it would have been… you know… useful.

I went to see this show with my partner and a friend. An intimate audience but it suited the show. It was initiate but I felt safe and comfortable. The show did well to be informative and funny and knew where the line was to being educational and witty whilst talking about sex whereas the alternative would be to make people feel uncomfortable and want to switch off. I think there is definitely something to be said of the experience of being a male audience member. I found myself learning things and understanding the role I can undertake in addressing the balance and acknowledge my privilege but also to understand that the patriarchy also doesn’t allow for men to have affective education in this area either. This show is a must see. The piece is brilliant in catering it’s subject matter to all genders, ages , classes and nationalities. Two fantastic performers being open and honest in their delivery which means a piece destined for great things and how I do wish them the greatest of successes with it. Keep it up!

What a fantastic show. Funny, hugely informative, very insightful, amazingly authentic and personal. Great songs and wonderful engagement with the audience. This is a must for any school wanting to really teach sex education. In fact any male/female/other, young or old should listen to this. It de-mystifies and creates clear understanding of the most basic and (what should be) enjoyable human need.

This show needs to be shown in schools. A fantastically insightful look into the world of sex and very funny and moving too. Adored it.

The two women were very polished performers and the show was (as a man) disturbing with the truth of female experience, everyone my age (69) was kept ignorant of every aspect of emotional sex and most aspects of biological sex in school. Sharing stories of first period surprise and shock, as well as an exploration of the male gaze was interesting, horrifying and (as a gay man) highly educational. A very good show.

At time silly and often funny, the show sets out its manifesto in the title, with stories and situations which are often fun but always real.

The show deals with traditionally very uncomfortable topics, but Lindsay and Lea keep the audience at ease – both of them are very charming and likeable and so we allow them to take us to wherever the show takes us next.
