Director Statement

When Becky Harris and I decided to collaborate on a project, we realized we wanted to make a short film about something we hardly, if ever, see in TV or film: what it’s like for a woman to express her orgasm needs to her partner. But we only wanted to do that if we could simultaneously tell a great story about two characters with real wants, fears, and senses of humor. We are so proud of this film and what it’s become and hope you enjoy it.
