“There’s nothing less sexy than the cloakroom queue at a sex party.”
Katie is trapped in a sex club. As exes, almosts and threesomes-past come back to haunt her, she travels through techno dancefloors, polythene playrooms and strobe lit dungeons, in a story of queer shame and desire.
Contains: dyke drama, sexistential dread, a nun.
