Web Series ‘F*ck Yes’ Looks to Continue Its Reinvention of Sex-Ed

"An opportunity to offer more honest depictions of sex and sexuality— the playfulness, the awkwardness — sometimes even the sadness and disappointment — and, ultimately, the delight."

Here’s your daily dose of an indie film, web series, TV pilot, what-have-you in progress, as presented by the creators themselves. At the end of the week, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

F*ck Yes

Logline: “F*ck Yes” is a modern sex ed series focused on improving communication (and sex) between consenting adults.

Elevator Pitch:

If you’re like us, you feel like modern sex ed leaves a lot to be desired. That’s why we created the series “F*ck Yes.” Our fictional scenarios share options for how people can communicate not only their consent, but their wants and needs before, during, and after sex. We released 4 episodes in the spring of 2016 (which was lauded by Bustle, Refinery29, and Mashable), and now we’re planning 10 more, 50% of which will be based on fan submissions.

Production Team:

Erica Anderson is a filmmaker, a co-founder of Seed&spark, & a writer & actor on “F*ck Yes.”

Elisabeth Aultman is a creative producer whose projects include “Feminist Frequency’s Ordinary Women: Daring to Defy History” & “F*ck Yes.”

Emily Best is the founder and CEO of Seed&Spark, a writer & director of “F*ck Yes,” & a film producer.

Julie Keck is the Media & Communications Director for Seed&Spark & has produced/written 20 series for the web in the past 5 years, the latest being “F*ck Yes.”

About the Film:

There is an enormous gap between the kind of sex that people see in pornography — which, unfortunately, serves as sex ed for many people — and the often tepid sex that’s deemed appropriate for television. The gap between the two is a special space we want to fill with more humane stories about genuine intimacy and human connection. “F*ck Yes” is an opportunity to offer more honest depictions of sex and sexuality— the playfulness, the awkwardness — sometimes even the sadness and disappointment — and, ultimately, the delight.

Current Status: Fundraising. Production planned for December 2016.
