A time-travel ride through evolution of sexes, celebrating our diverse gender identities and sexualities. Packed with humour and DIY tech, ›Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.)‹ is a playful new take on sex education from the award-winning artist Mamoru Iriguchi, whose work has been described as ›gloriously original‹ (Socialist Worker), ›nothing short of genius‹ (Sunday Herald) and ›Daringly inventive‹ (The Stage). An eye-opening experience for teenagers, and everyone who missed the sex education they deserved at school!
