"It's a riotously funny journey through the complexities of modern relationships, blending humor with a bold look at our intimate explorations." comments Woodward. "Sex-Positive is a progressive look at the world of kink and polyamory, but also a funny, sweet and good-hearted romance.&Quot; Producer Ben Matheny added, "It's a courageous yet compassionate exploration of the wild frontiers of modern love."
"Sex-Positive is what a National Lampoon film would look like in 2024," commented Shaked Berenson, Entertainment Squad's CEO. "With studios and streamers focusing on wide-audience tentpoles and mid-sized horror films, there is an underserved demand for fun, light-entertainment comedies."
Ellis and Woodward star alongside Aaron Quinn Long, Ashton Leigh, Belle Eclair, Christian Menace and Juliana Destefano.
Produced by Ben Matheny, while Gabrielle Almagor, Fouad Zeton, and Woodward serve as executive producers, Jon Perry as co-producer, and Laura Singleterry as line producer.
