Horny? Likely? *Lonely?

Hamish MacPherson with Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau
2020



In March and April 2020 I used social media to ask, “Are you having sexual or sensual intimacy with people who are distant from you during the COVID-19 lockdowns?”

People replied anonymously and I asked friends and acquaintances to record themselves reading these texts out.  Then Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau turned them into this podcast. It contains some sexual references.
