Can we talk about monogamy please?
Sex has never failed to be a subject of fascination, but perhaps we speak about it more freely now than ever before, especially at Fringe World.
Certainly Helen Cassidy would have been arrested for her show Erotic Intelligence for Dummies even forty years ago. There are places in the world where she would be arrested even today.

The show is an exploration of sex - historical, aberrant, exploratory, normative, instructive and philosophical.
Helen Cassidy, a Gaulier-trained clown and classical actor is a woman and actor of wide experience all of which she brings to bear in this self-written performance drawing on the spoken word, puppetry, mime, singing, dressing-up and even balloons as well as a selection of what used to be coyly called 'marital aids'.
Helen has performed Erotic Intelligence for Dummies all over the world, and will go from here to Adelaide Fringe's Garden of Earthy Delights.
Erotic Intelligence for Dummies runs from Friday the 20th to Saturday the 28th January 2017(Six Performances only) at Piazza Hut Upstairs, Cnr Lake & James St, Northbridge (Behind the Big Screen) at 8.30pm.
Ticket cost $24 and may be booked on line at the Fringe World website here.
