An expedition through the often hilarious, occasionally profound sexual habits of the animal kingdom. Ryan Good (Neo-Futurist, NYIT award winner) as Ryan the Bisexual Lion has explored the far reaches of the animal world and the depths of his sexuality. Think David Attenborough meets Eddie Izzard on Grindr. From bonobo chimps to Brooklyn sex parties, gay penguins to failed first gay sex and boobies (the rare blue-footed Ecuadorian bird) to boobies (the awesome ones), no stone is left un-humped. We are all animals: perverted, loving, confused creatures who make ridiculous faces when we orgasm. Rarrr.

Full press release

Banned by Facebook: Award-winning US performer Ryan Good brings the controversially titled, touchingly performed, sold out, Sex With Animals to this year's Festival Fringe.

In an expedition through the often hilarious, occasionally profound sexual habits of the animal kingdom, Ryan Good (7 year cast member of the Fringe First winning New York Neo-Futurists and NYIT award winner) as Ryan the Bisexual Lion has explored the far reaches of the animal world and the depths of his sexuality. Billed by the New York Post as "David Attenborough meets Eddie Izzard on Grindr."

Amusingly, titling the show Sex With Animals has proven slightly problematic. The show's placeholder Facebook page was set up in the month of April and after getting 300+ 'Likes' from people who apparently are in support of the activity suggested (as there was no information on the show present), the page and it's creators (writer Ryan Good and producer Lucy Tafler) were summarily banned from Facebook completely. It took weeks pleading, paperwork demonstrating the show's legitimacy, multiple favours called in and a free speech objection (ironically on Facebook walls) by supporters of the production to un-ban the folks involved. So, like the New York Post and the Scotsman look for us @SexWithAnimals and rest assured Facebook, they aren't starting a world wide bestiality movement. In fact, no animals were harmed or pleasured in the making of this show.

Ryan has spent the past year researching through exploring places as far as the Peruvian rainforest and the Galapagos. From bonobo chimps to Brooklyn sex parties, gay penguins to failed first gay sex, monogamous albatrosses to polyamorous coffee mornings, and boobies (the rare blue footed Ecuadorian bird) to boobies (the awesome ones), no stone is left un-humped. He discovers that we are all animals: perverted, loving, confused creatures who make ridiculous faces when we orgasm. In a world where gender, sexuality and how we meet our romantic partners is becoming more and more fluid, this show speaks to the individual experiences of someone in the heart of it - and that person spends most of their time giggling about how ridiculous and lovely humans and animals can be.
