Sex After Kids
This edgy comedy about the sexual adventures in parenthood finds newlyweds (Ennis Esmer and Shannon Beckner), who couldn’t keep their hands off each other before their baby, now find their schedules and libidos out of sync. In an effort to help them get over their dry spell, he seeks outside advice and turns to a sex therapist (Gordon Pinsent) for help. Single mother (Zoie Palmer), who flawlessly managed the grueling wait list at the spank bank, finds it much harder to navigate the “I need to get laid” world. When all her suitors turn out to be nice guys who wouldn’t dare of have a one-night-stand with a single mom, her brother (Paul Amos) guides her towards the world of sexual deviants to get her kicks. Surprised by the birth of their son, former “it” couple (Peter Keleghan and Amanda Brugel) struggle to let go of their fabulous old life when he was a major player and she hung out with the Kardashians. As she struggles with her role as a new mother, he has a hard time seeing his once hot young bride turning into a soccer mom, and wonders if he can ever be attracted to her again. When they whisk their final child (Katie Boland) off into the world, retired couple (Jay Brazeau and Mimi Kuzyk) finally become empty nesters. But they soon realize for the first time in thirty years they are alone with just their puzzles and gardening. With one wanting to ‘experiment’ and the other stuck in the role of parent, they might just have to accept that they had a good run together but it’s time to move on. A lesbian couple (Mary Krohnert and Kate Hewlett) with a son who has just turned two years old realize that they aren’t on the same page when it comes to raising the child. Their strength was always in how different they were, but now it seems like those differences are too much to take as they navigate their new roles and changing relationship. Along with their friends (Kris Holden-Ried and Kristin Booth), these five couples learn to navigate the world of post-child relations, find a way to get over the hump, and knock some booties.
