When did television become so explicit about sex?
Phoebe Waller-Bridge above plays the eponymous year-old with a bad sex life, even worse family including actress-of-the-moment Olivia Colman as her monstrous godmother and habit of rolling her eyes at the camera and masturbating to Barack Obama speeches. The Bisexual was written by and starred Desiree Akhavan, who played American-in-London Leila, first met while dissolving her long-term lesbian relationship to explore sex with men.
Akhavan says she hated filming the sex scenes, but they are as tender, messy and as unflinching as any I can remember ever seeing on screen. Pure was loosely adapted by Kirstie Swain from a memoir by Rose Cartwright, who has a form of OCD that besets her with explicit sexual thoughts.
It contains regular collages of imagery akin to being stuck behind the retinas of someone suffering with PTSD flashbacks from excessive porn use. And the recently concluded final series of Catastrophewhich is co-written by its co-star Sharon Horgantackled a different sort of sexual taboo: the waning of physical desire within a marriage. It was less than a decade from Sex and the City to Girlsbut in terms of sexual frankness, it might as well have been light years.
At the same time as female writers have been making their voices heard, MeToo has muddied the whole area of male sexuality. Who knows, it may be that the female gaze becomes the new norm.
