A time-travel ride through evolution of sexes, celebrating our diverse gender identities and sexualities. Packed with humour and DIY tech, Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.) is a playful new take on sex education from the award-winning team behind Eaten “astoundingly original… nothing short of genius” ★★★★★ Sunday Herald (on Eaten), and “Daringly inventive” ★★★★ The Stage (on Eaten). 

An eye-opening experience for teenagers, and everyone who missed the sex education they deserved at school!

“Utterly hilarious, while touching on serious themes, it was a masterclass in media-heavy performance art” (Exeunt Magazine on Sex Education Xplorers (S.E.X.) scratch performance).
