A candid, refreshing and funny exploration of some decidedly personal questions!

Gay filmmaker and educator Alex Liu, done with feeling repressed, wants to sort out some big quandaries once and for all. Why is there so much shame around desire? Should we feel guilty over our fantasies? Why doesn’t anyone talk about masturbation?

He’ll chat to a slew of experts – from religious figures to scientists – to get to the bottom of things. He’ll also put himself and his family under the microscope to see just why he grew up feeling awkward about his burgeoning sexuality (cue some uncomfortable on-camera conversations).

With the spunky Liu as host, this doco is both funny and reassuring!

Content Warning: A very brief mention of suicide ideation.
