“Creating this series was an incredibly vibrant and exhilarating experience,” said producers Nabil Mehchi and Sylvia Wilson. “The participants and experts brought so much honesty and compassion to this universal conversation, and the result is a very rewarding and enjoyable series. Turns out, Canadians have a lot to say about sex!”
The series unpacks our notions of sexuality, explains new vernacular, and debunks all the myths surrounding sex. From sex robots to gender fluidity, polyamory to good ol’ fashioned monogamy and beyond, this original series isn’t afraid to put a human face on the things that get us all hot and bothered.
Available in its entirety as of March 18, The Big Sex Talk episodes are:
Episode 1: “Mono-poly”
If monogamy isn’t for everyone, why do we act as if it is? This episode re-examines monogamy, unpacks the jealousy question, and dives into polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy.
Episode 2: “Not Having It”
Sex is everywhere, but is it essential for a “happy” life? This episode asks what it means to be asexual in a hypersexualized world, rethinks pleasure, and finds out if cake is better than sex.
Episode 3: “Click, Swipe, Love”
Is technology ruining our sex lives, or are we getting off with a little tech support? From dating apps to sex robots to VR porn, this episode examines the intersection of sex, tech, and humanity.
Episode 4: “Beyond The Binary”
Gender and sexuality are so interwoven, it’s hard to know where one ends and the other begins. This episode explores our ideas of gender, sexuality, and the possibilities beyond the gender binary.
Episode 5: “The Best Is Yet To Come”
Do we have a “sexpiration” date or do boomers have lots of boom boom left? Research says that sex improves with age: if we rethink sex and pleasure, no matter how old we are, the best is yet to come.
Episode 6: “Status Queer”
Queer is being used more and more these days, but not everyone knows what it is. This episode unpacks what being queer truly means, and how “Q” fits into the ever-growing acronym that is LGBTQIP2SAA+.
