Hi, this is Daniel Garber at the Movies for culturalmining.comand CIUT 89.5 FM.

Josh and Emma (Emily Hampshire) are a happily-married couple with two daughters they adore. They are sending them off to winter camp for a week, which means this will be their first time alone in a decade, free to do whatever they want. What do they want?  Sex of course. But after their first try they realize they’ve both forgotten how to do anything sexual other than faking orgasms.

So they decide to spice things up a bit.  But this puts them both under a lot of pressure… what if it doesnt work? Could the end of sex mean the end of  marriage?

The End of Sex is a comic romp about men, women; thruples, swingers and kink, along with love, fidelity, and possible adultery. It lays bare the worst sexual insecurities and anxieties of suburban life .

The film is directed by the prolific, award winning  filmmaker Sean Garrity and written by and starring his frequent collaborator the equally formidable and prize-winning Jonas Chernick (The Last Mark, James vs His Future Self, A Swingers’ Weekend).

I spoke with Sean and Jonas on site at TIFF22.

The End of Sex had its World Premiere at TIFF, and will be released later this year.

I previously interviewed Sean Garrity in 2012, and again, with Jonas Chernick, in  2016.
