My brother came out after an episode of ‘The L Word’.
As the credits closed on Carmen going down on a leggy blonde in a nightclub, he said, “I’m like that. I do that.”
My mother and I looked at each other, confused.
“Cunnilingis?” I offered, and laughed.
“No!” He said, standing up and rolling up his blanket. “Gay. I do gay. I’m gay. I do gay sex.”
‘The Talk’ is about talking about sex with your family. Mum, dad, brother’s new boyfriend… all of them.
Mish Grigor, motivated by a monumental event, shares her conversations – complete with awkwardness, nervous giggles, and some outright baffling moments.
“There are some monumental performance moments in The Talk—moments where Grigor does much more than press buttons and mess with our heads (which she does so well)” Urszula Dawkins, REAL TIME
