Audio Smut presents: a radio play.
This episode was a documentary experiment, produced in collaboration with composer Shani Aviram. We set out asking questions about how perception is altered in early romantic relationships. How does your sense of reality fail you when you’re falling in love? After months of research and 17 interviews, we decided to write a single narrative encompassing the experiences and facts we unearthed. Only by creating a fictional narrative was it possible to represent the extremely internal nature of this particular struggle.
Picture that unbelievable first date, wrought with chemistry and passion. Your arms graze and you pulse with anticipation and energy. You kiss. It’s magic. Everything sparkles. You go home and relive every moment of the past 4 hours. You long for your second meeting. Maybe this time you will go all the way. You imagine their mouth all over your body. It will probably be the best sex you’ve ever had. You picture their apartment, cluttered with tchotchkes, a large wooden table with mis-matched chairs, a vintage green velvet couch. You have only hung out with them once, but you have this feeling that this might be one of the greatest relationships of your life. You imagine all of the things you will do together. You might catch yourself picturing the house the two of you will live in. You wait by the phone for one day, two days, three days, a week. No call, nothing. Suddenly the narrative you have been reliving multiple times a day is broken. You are forced to begin re-examining the series of events. And you start to feel utterly insane. What the fuck happened? You let a moment or two get away from you. You got excited about something that wasn’t real yet. And then you ended up profoundly confused and disappointed. You were making movies in your head.
Special thanks to our interviewees, especially Ayinde Bennett (the man who told us about making movies in your head), Armen Bazarian and Caroline McKeown.
While we really needed an informative documentary of sex education that would create awareness among teenagers, Netflix served us with something similar and yet very different. Sex Education is a satirical approach to talk about the common issues among the youth and spread awareness in a meaningful way.
Sex Education by Netflix was released in 2019 as a comedy-teen drama revolving around a protagonist named Otis (Asa Butterfield) whose mother, Jean, is a sex therapist. Otis grows up in an environment where sex is a general topic to talk about. He is completely comfortable talking about sex and is unaware of how it is taboo outside his household. The web series contains plenty of sexual material that may appear to divert the viewers from the main issue, but the producers of Sex Education have maintained a balance between providing entertainment and knowledge. They have also made it hilarious to watch how the life of a teenager revolves around the hormonal changes’ fears and curiosity. The first season of Sex Education is about Otis’s journey, realizing that he knows a lot about sex than his fellow schoolmates, even though he is still a virgin. He starts his own secret sex therapy clinic at the school, where he solves the problems of young teenagers and answers their innocent questions.
The best parts of Sex Education is how they manage to pull off important topics of awareness and present it in an interesting manner that will probably not offend any parents whose kids are watching the series. Also, the series depicts the frustrations and desires of young adults in a fun and interactive way. As an adult, you may feel the nostalgia remembering about your teenage years when you faced the same issues related to sex.
Sex Education is a teen comedy-drama that takes major issues of sex education and awareness. However, there are many instances throughout the series that may be a bit too much for young adults to handle. Some of the scenes from Sex Education may seem offensive and crude to the viewers who want to ensure that their kids are not watching something too explicit. If the explicit scenes are not something you can tolerate, Sex Education is not for you as you may get overwhelmed with some of the episodes.
Overall, Sex Education is a fun and informative series to watch on Netflix. There are plenty of instances when Otis digs deep into young teenagers’ issues and helps them find the right solutions. Some of the problems may also be relatable to the viewers in real life. The series may also help the teenagers solve their own problems if they face difficulty in sharing their haunting secrets with their parents. The best way to find whether you like the series or not is to watch the trailer today or follow it up with binge-watching the entire first season.
This episode is about growing up, becoming an adult, entering a stage of independence: shaving cream, tampons, driving, voting, doing your own dishes, doing your own taxes and sex. This episode will take you on a path of rituals, formal or otherwise. Imagine a caterpillar. It is reaching that time in a caterpillars life where it’s time to grow some wings and fly. So the caterpillar makes a cocoon and hangs out in there for a while. One day the cocoon bursts open and a beautiful butterfly comes out. This episode is about the joys and terrors of the cocoon phase. Not a girl, not yet a woman.
Harvey Katz is the Athen’s Boys Choir. But before he was able to come out as a man, he had to become a woman. We chronicle and juxtapose the various rites of passage that Harvey has gone through in the past 30 odd years: culottes, a hurricane, getting on a stage & shaving.

An Adult Like Prince
Kaleigh Trace grew up in rural Ontario. A place with few formalized rituals, just a lot of booze, sex, bonfires and farms. Just like most of us, when she was in high school, she was awkward and uncomfortable. She wanted to be an adult but didn’t really know how. She loved listening to Prince. Prince’s songs are about sex, so Kaleigh danced around listening to Prince, trying to figure out sex.
For more stories from Kaleigh, check out her first creative, non-fiction book “Hot, Wet & Shaking: How I Learned To Talk About Sex.” Which will be released in the summer of 2014. It will be available at independent and chain retailers in Canada, and through Amazon. The book will be touring in September through New York, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada.
