When filmmaker Liz Canner took a job editing erotic videos for female Viagra trials, she stumbled across insider access to the industry's race to reshape female sexuality around pharmaceutical profit. From attempts to turn sexual dissatisfaction into a 'disease' to the development of the Orgasmatron and Designer Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation, this documentary has won a string of awards for its hilarious, provocative and sobering account of the commercial battle for women's sexuality. A UK Premiere.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion about the medicalisation – and commercialisation – of female sexuality hosted by journalist & broadcaster Bidisha, and featuring Sam Roddick, founder of Coco de Mer, and Dr Sandy Goldbeck-Wood, a specialist in psychosexual medicine.
