Mammalian Diving Reflex, of the revered social practice-based work Haircuts by Children (TBA:07), returns with All the Sex I’ve Ever Had.

Mammalian assembles a cross-section of elderly Portlanders and asks these bold seniors to open up about their sexual adventures (and misadventures). They will courageously share their private histories, field audience questions, celebrate life’s milestones and occasionally dance on-stage. Anything and everything is revealed from first crushes, illicit long-time liaisons and unexpected pregnancies, to role-playing and orgies, to things we really shouldn’t mention here.
