Have you ever had a private thought during sex? Something awkward you’ve not said aloud? Sex isn’t something we’re taught, it’s more of a trial and error, sink or swim…sorry, let me take it back a step. Well…as well as all the travelling, weddings, client videos etc. I also make short films and comedy sketches. I’ve never blogged about it before but this time was special. This time, all of my best friends took part. We all live in different places but managed to come together to see each other for the first time in years.
Most friends go to the pub. Or maybe grab a few bottles of wine and watch Netflix. Us. We make videos.
It all started when I lived in France years ago. The main character – that’s me.
Well not literally. But I’m that awkward guy that over thinks everything. I remember writing the first draft of “Socially Awkward Sex” back in 2015. Since then it’s been re-drafted and made better by superior writing talents than mine but getting to direct it and spend the weekend with some of the best people I’ve ever met is an experience not-unlike travelling. I approached it with the same openness, the same wonder and the same joy.
Maybe that’s what it’s about in the end. Life. Treating everything like it’s the first time. Shaking every hand like they might be your best friend. Treating every sexual encounter like you’ve never done it before…Ok actually, not that last one – but hold that thought for the full video (insert wink emoji).
Happy 11.11 my friends.
