Exploring themes of play to understand emotional intelligence and the healing elements of connection, Elese Moran, Director of Asking for Sex has been creating art that illuminates the discourse around power control dynamics and gender issues for several years now. After spending 15 years in the tech industry working as a marketer, storyteller and consumer behavior researcher, her documentary work uniquely captures how people play and interact with each other to gain connection in this world. Creatively bold and a risk taker, she has created Asking for Sex a documentary that deconstructs modern male sexuality through the stories of consent fails.
