Watch the brand new teaser trailer for Sexless!

Sexless the short film explores the sexual and emotional relationships of a woman with vaginismus. With this story we aim to show how our relationships with ourselves must come first in order to have healthy relationships with others. What is vaginismus you say? Take a look at our Kickstarter Campaign to learn more about the film and this condition.

This project inspired me to take a deep look at my own relationships and the way I interact with myself and others. Learning to keep that which serves us and release any perpetuated drama additions is a very important lesson and one that I constantly struggle to address. I enjoyed building the visual language for Melissa’s script and can’t wait to continue exploring these essential, human topics:


Self Discovery
Moving through Pain
Self Love
Self Care
Healing Crisis
Trusting yourself
Trusting your partner
Sustainable Happiness
