vmlab: What is your primary impulse for producing this documentary?

I wanted to increase compassion and understanding among women around the country, especially toward people whose experiences with sex and sexuality are different from our own. With the myths or archetypes that are reinforced by pop culture (and Reality TV in particular), most of us suffer from seriously misunderstanding other people’s motives and behaviors when it comes to sex, reproduction, sexuality, and sexual health. This mutual skepticism and disregard, especially among women, keeps us from addressing the bigger questions getting in the way of our well-being.
