Sex and Pleasure

8 March 2023

Sex and Pleasure

“Everyone has sex,” says Lesego Tlhabi, aka Coconut Kelz, at the start of the trailer for the new Showmax Original Sex & Pleasure. “Even your most conservative grandmother had eight kids. So let’s talk about it.”

Sex in Afrikaans was one of the 10 most streamed titles on Showmax in South Africa in 2022, but it’s clearly not just Afrikaners who like to knyp die kat in die donker.

Hosted by writer Kim Windvogel and journalist Romantha Botha, Sex & Pleasure will take a broader view of what South Africans get up to behind closed doors, and, well, everywhere else too. Each episode will explore tlof tlof in relation to a different topic: sex work, parenting, love, drugs, orgasm, disability, age, and spirituality.  Kim and Romantha co-wrote and conceptualised Sex & Pleasure with director Ayanda Duma, who was also a producer on the South African leg of Planet Sex with Cara Delevigne, which you can binge on Showmax now. SAFTA winner IdeaCandy (Steinheist, Devilsdorp) is producing the eight-part series, which includes playful motion graphics by Mbali Hlatshwayo.

All the episodes of Sex and Pleasure are streaming on Showmax.
