The Coolidge Effect
Wonder Fools presents: The Coolidge Effect, exploring the relationship that society has with pornography.
About The Coolidge Effect
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
You watch porn. Right? You don’t have to tell us. That’s not what this is about.
The amount of pornography we watch is growing exponentially: in the UK alone, 10 million porn videos are watched every day.
As society’s pornography use increases, so does our unwillingness to talk about it. The Coolidge Effect seeks to break this taboo. Using an interactive blend of storytelling, poetry and science, the show examines how pornography affects our mental health, relationships and sexual experiences.
Recipient of a Special Commendation as part of the Suitcase Prize at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich at PULSE Festival 2017.
