Free entry “I sort of think I don't know anything about sex. And then I think like everyone else, I must know something. Whatever we do know comes from somewhere and it probably started as children, before we 'had sex' before we had school 'Sex Ed'. Our real sex education is cultural. “When I was at school there was a queue to read a book about sex - that book was 'Forever' by Judy Blume. Why was there a queue? Would our relationship to sex be the same if we'd never read it? What was in that book? “Maybe a whole generation of women need to hear it again, and go back to where our ideas started. It's going to tell us all something, men and women, but we won't know until we hear it.” E.V. Crowe, Playwright
