THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF BONING
Where did I come from? What's happening to my body? And why is this script so bad? In The Wonderful World of Boning, writer, sex educator, and funny lady Lux Alptraum teams up with comedian friends to take a tour of classic sex education videos, where some of America's best community theater actors teach our nation's youth all about puberty, sexual health, and what's happening down at the STI clinic.

The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, has added a brand new show to its line up: The Wonderful World of Boning, a tour of classic sex education videos, where some of America's finest community theater actors teach our nation's youth all about puberty, sexual health, and what's happening down at the STI clinic. Hosted by Lux Alptraum and Tiara Francis, the show adds comic commentary to clips pulled from videos collected by Alptraum during her former career as a high school sex ed teacher.

Among the films featured in this show:

Seriously Fresh, a film that combines hip '90s fashion and lingo with lessons about HIV

You, Your Body, and Puberty, a guide to the weird experience of adolescence, and the even weirder experience of talking to your dad about boners

A Family Talks About Sex, the 1981 classic that finally answers the question, "How many times do I have to have gay sex before I'm considered gay?"

What's Happening to Me?, an animated film about puberty that might just be racist

ABOUT THE HOSTS:

Lux Alptraum spent four years teaching sex education to teenagers, and six years recommending porn to adults. The former editor/publisher of renowned sex blog Fleshbot, she currently works as a writer, consultant, and mocker of vintage sex education videos.

Tiara Francis is an actor, comedian, and writer from New York City. She has studied improvisation and sketch writing at The Upright Citizens Brigade NYC and performs with the all-women-of-color improv group Affirmative Action.
