Behind The Walls
Doors Locked, Legs Apart
“The best thing a woman can do to arouse a man is to strip half-naked and stand before him in choice lingerie. Given the chance, some men will get turned on by tearing away that sheer fabric… Happy is the woman blessed with a husband manly and love-smitten enough to destroy the last vestiges of her clothing…”
Published in 1957, Dr. Fritz Kahn’s manual entitled The School of Love ushered in a revolutionary spirit which launched many a timid couple on the road toward fulfillment and sensual pleasures in a relationship. In Kahn’s idealized world, fragrant, desirable Women make love to stalwart and potent Men.
But what really transpires behind closed doors? How do we experience sex in this day and age of ours, when the words Man and Woman no longer mean what they used to – if they mean anything at all?
Behind Walls: Doors Locked, Legs Apart,a collaboration between The Symptoms and Tamás Ördög, actor-director of the theater collective dollardaddy’s, presents civilized sex through the lens of an ordinary family.
Sexually dysfunctional viewers qualify for a surprise gift.
