Hello and thanks for coming back for more! Episode 10 is about boundaries, what they are and how they can be tested, challenged, broken or rebuilt.
There is discussion around nakedness, and about consent. There are loud ham horn noises. We think about racism too. We think about gender-based power imbalances - there are moments when sweeping generalisations about men are made. We also talk about the pandemic, and the effects of it, particularly on people with disabilities, trans people, people who experience neurodivergencies and queer people. If you’d like to listen, please listen in a way or in an environment that feels comfortable for you.

The Family Sex Show Starts Here
Hello! We’re making a theatre show about sex, for families. The Family Sex Show.
We hope the show will be part of the transformative conversations around relationships and sex being had among families and young people. One among many safe places where children and young people can feel confident to think big thoughts, away from a culture of shame, oppressive beauty standards, queerphobia, and racism.
We’ve made this podcast, The Family Sex Show Starts Here, as an introduction to that, and to us. This particular version of the podcast is aimed at young people and adults. We’re also working on a version of this podcast that is friendly for children, so check back again soon if that’s something that might be for you.
In this series, we explore bodies, gender and sexuality, pleasure, relationships, and boundaries through personal stories, songs, scenes and poems. Then we have conversations jumping off those topics with artists and with Relationships and Sex Education experts.
This podcast is made in consultation with the School of Sexuality Education. It is a podcast full of thoughts for you to finish.
