The Art of the Joy of Sex

Camera and Assistant Producer
Broadcast on Sky Arts

Wickedly humorous

The Guardian

When I told people I was shooting a film about Alex Comfort’s book, The Joy of Sex, everyone had their own story to tell: finding it under their parents’ bed or climbing on stools to reach it down from the top shelves … We all remember those pencil drawings of that very hairy man using the woman as a wheelbarrow (among other things)!


This film follows artist Julie Verhoeven as she reinterprets Chris Foss’s original drawings to create an entirely new conceptual piece of art that premiered at the ICA in London.
