“Vanilla sex refers to conventional sex that conforms to the very basic expectations with a culture. Classically, in heterosexual sex, it refers to sex in the missionary position, and broadly speaking, it excludes fetishes such as S&M.”

Dan and Katie are your ordinary couple living in an ordinary one-bed flat. They’re in their twenties. They’re making advancements in their career. They used to drink at the local pub every Friday. Now they just play puzzles. Dan and Katie can’t remember when their sexual mojo disappeared. Or where to. All they know is, they have to get it back – and they have to get it back tonight. But how far do they go? And how vanilla is TOO vanilla?

A fresh, honest and awkwardly funny look into an isolated relationship and the repercussions of wanting too much – or not wanting enough.
