The Big O

A voyage into sex, healing, & connection after one woman's diagnosis of Anorgasmia

Is there a right time to care about female pleasure?

In a world full of distractions (see: the news, social media, dating apps), survival mode, & the crushing weight of “being a good feminist”, is the female orgasm ever going to be a priority?

Join Lucy on her personal voyage into sex, healing, & connection after a diagnosis of lifelong Anorgasmia (with a Trunchbull-esque psychosexual consultant).

Sex toys. Faking orgasms. Consent. Casual vs monogamous sex. Love. Mental Health. Folklore. Bad chat up lines. Politics. PTSD. Female pleasure throughout history. Feminist f@!kboys & that incident with the guy that wanted to do that thing.

This is a play to see with your friends, your mum, & your lover. Just maybe not all at the same time.
