From neuroscience labs to church pews, A Sexplanation features provocative conversations in the pursuit of sexual truth and knowledge.

Like many youth in the 90s, Alex received misguided sex education in school. In place of accurate information and helpful guidance, teachers showed shocking childbirth videos and graphic images of individuals with untreated HIV/AIDS. For Alex, and for many LGBTQ people like him, public condemnation and prejudice led to a path of shame and isolation. Now in his 30s and out of the closet, Alex has turned fear and loathing into something positive and humorous. A Sexplanation seeks to turn his personal pursuit of shame-free pleasure into a call for comprehensive sex education for everyone.

With levity and grit, Alex takes audiences on a playful, heartfelt journey from a humiliated past into a happier, healthier future.
