Do you know your lover’s lovers?

Dare we say ‘a repeat we have been waiting for?’ A repeat of Intersexions is happening on SABC1 Fridays at 20h30 starting 22 July 2011.

Intersexions is a hard-hitting, innovative drama series that has 25 separate but interlinked episodes. Intersexions examines issues about love, sex and relationships and how they can have heartbreaking and physically devastating, consequences.

Intersexions is an episodic educational drama series that shows how our lives intersect and criss-cross with others’ in ways we don’t even know about. As soon as we become sexually active, we are immediately locked into a human web with complete strangers.

From the opening episode the series goes back in time, revealing the complicated sexual network set in motion with Mandisa and DJ Mo’s affair five years earlier. Viewers experience the lives of the different characters that place them at risk of contracting HIV.

The series has 68 leading actors; hundreds of locations around the country, 25 individual stories all exploring relationships across age, class, sexual orientation and race.

Intersexions does not judge; it simply tells stories that show how the risk of being infected with HIV is always waiting for an opportunity to take root. We can minimise infection by becoming more conscious of our sexual choices and our everyday decisions.

Intersexions educates us that the only way we can protect ourselves, our loved ones and even those we have never met, is by being honest with each other, making serious decisions about how we live our lives and by all being aware of the obvious and not-so-obvious intersections in the greater human network.

Intersexions is produced by Curious Pictures, in partnership with Johns Hopkins Health and Education in South Africa (JHHESA) and SABC Education, with funding from USAID and PEPFAR.
