From the profound and insightful to the humorous, offbeat and just plain outrageous – here’s what had to say to Hot Press in 2019 about sex.
“It was always important to us that the cast felt like real people – which is what Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan did so brilliantly in Catastrophe. Sex-wise, I’d had three years of filming scenes in which people are really bad at sex.” – Sex Education director Ben Taylor
“Sexuality is only seen as something fearful by people who have a problem.” – Mike Scott
“There are people out there who like to dress up and become a robot, or prefer to have sex with people who look like robots.” – AI expert Kate Devlin
“I’m quite compliant but also creative in changing lyrics from, I dunno, ‘We go down on each other’ to ‘We get down with one another’.” – Marika Hackman
