    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.
