It’s 1972. An era of possibility and polyester and pubic hair. Ziggy Stardust is on Top of the Pops, Penny is writing an essay on Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Christine is watching Deepthroat. Brian is confused. Our parents are 20 and they’re having sex. A 90-minute romp through the ins and outs of those excellently awkward first sexual encounters.
‘We were inspired to make the show after considering our own attitudes towards sex in 2015. The prevalence of easily accessible internet porn for young people, the current state of feminism, the disparity in each individual’s sex education and the legalisation of same-sex marriage in the UK and Ireland are all urgent topics which affect us in modern Britain. We want to use the lens of the seventies; a post sexual revolution era, a time of the pill, of second wave feminism, David Bowie, a time of sexual possibility, to comment on sex and relationships today.’
