The Guardian

Written and created by Kay Mellor, this six part miniseries is a no holds barred, frank exploration of what makes people function sexually in the twenty-first century. In a society saturated with sexual imagery and advice on how to improve your sex life, it features infidelities, lust, fantasies and sexual awakenings, taking viewers under the covers to explore what’s really going on in our bedrooms.

Starring Brenda Blethyn, Alun Armstrong and Julie Graham, the show attempts to understand what makes us function sexually; to uncover why we’re attracted to people we shouldn’t be, and what makes one person turn us on when another leaves us cold. Provocative and emotional, the series pushes boundaries and goes where others fear to tread.
