Such Filthy F*cks

Presented by Smoke & Oakum Theatre

Such Filthy F*cks’ is the story of Jules and Luka. Two ordinary people, who have never met, stumbling through their fairly average lives, but all the while completely, utterly and hopelessly addicted to porn.

What began as temptation has developed into a lifestyle, and soon they find themselves planning every section of their day around the next hit, the next video and the next... y’know.

As the addiction grows, so too do the obstacles facing them. Relationships collapse, time always seems to be running out and normal sexual relationships become impossible, as they grow ever more desensitised to the world around them.

Eventually they cross the final frontier, becoming so utterly entranced and comfortable with the world of online porn that the idea of sex with a human is not only implausible, it’s frankly a bit revolting. Suddenly the world opens up before them, no innate sexual desire means they can focus on their jobs, work longer hours, they’ve remove the fear of loneliness or unfilled desire, truly platonic friendships flourish and any unwanted twitch of lust is easily fixed.

Until, that is, they meet.

And so they begin trying to claw their way back into the real world. They give up porn, see therapists, confess to friends and family and try desperately to rediscover that feeling of desire and passion for another human.

But will they make it? Will they manage to wrench themselves free from one of the 21st centuries biggest social contagions? Or will they slip back to into the sanitised and isolated world, just waiting for them in their pockets?
