Sexuality in the 21st Century

Why do we find the topic of sexuality so fraught, and confusing? In a world that is full of things to worry about, who we fall in love with should not be one of them. From the pros and cons of labelling our identities, to coming out and sexual fluidity, there seems to be so much to get hung up about.

Comedian and writer Mae Martin, author of Can Everyone Please Calm Down? A Guide to 21st Century Sexuality and creator/star of the upcoming Netflix/E4 series "Mae & George" is in conversation with Deborah Frances-White, comedian and creator of the award-winning The Guilty Feminist podcast and bestselling book, celebrated for their candid discussions of what it means to be a 21st century feminist.

Mae's new book, like her stand-up comedy, is deeply confessional, highlighting the personal and human things that unite us rather than those that separate us. Together they boldly, intelligently and hilariously investigate these themes and many more.  

After the talk, Mae Martin will be signing copies of Can Everyone Please Calm Down?: A Guide to 21st Century Sexuality, and Deborah Frances-White will be signing copies of The Guilty Feminist, both of which are available now from the National Theatre Bookshop. When you buy your copies from the National Theatre Bookshop, you support the work of the NT.
