From neuroscience labs to church pews, A Sexplanation features provocative conversations with psychologists, sex researchers—and even a Jesuit priest. Now in his 30s and out of the closet, Alex has turned fear and loathing into something positive and humorous. This documentary seeks to turn his personal pursuit of shame-free pleasure into a call for comprehensive sex education for everyone.
Watch the film first at the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival!
Available to watch from your home between May 27 (noon ET) – June 6 (11:59pm ET)
