Podcast: Does this interview pass the Bechdel Test?

Jessie-Wren Jacobs chats about her show, This Porno Does Not Pass The Bechdel Test

Our latest guest is Jessie-Wren Jacobs, who is getting ready to take her show, This Porno Does Not Pass the Bechdel test, to Edinburgh Fringe. Although before then, she is making a quick stop off at Camden’s Etcetera Theatre in July.

Describing her show as a feminist tragicomedy, Jessie-Wren tells us what the Bechdel test is and why it actually doesn’t have a massive amount to do with the show anyway. We also discuss sex education, the issues of teens being exposed to porn from such a young age and how this feeds into the show, and whether the show is suitable for her grandparents!

This Porno Does Not pass The Bechdel test plays at Etcetera Theatre for one night only on 5 July, then Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 19 – 24 August. More information can be found ⁠here⁠.

This Porno Does Not Pass The Bechdel Test

By Jessie-Wren Jacobs

An internet contest where an ordinary person gets the chance to appear in a pornographic video with their favourite porn star.

Sienna’s won the competition and now it’s time to reap the reward.

The countdown has begun – in 45 minutes Sienna and Lance will begin their livestream, but she’s started to have doubts. Not just about the recording, but porn in general.

Sex. Ethics. Jason Derulo. This hilarious feminist tragicomedy will give you a night you won’t forget. Will you be watching?

Camden Etctera Theatre 5 July. Tickets here.

EdFringe 19 -24 August. Tickets here.
