Tofu’s eight episodes will each explore a different aspect of the modern sex culture, using a combination of interviews, sketch comedy, animation, fantasy elements and musical set pieces.
Actors from Cucumber and Banana will also appear, alongside porn stars and – here’s where you come in – members of the public, who are being asked to share the challenges and triumphs of their ‘sexcapades’ by uploading a short video to the show’s website.
Russell T Davies says,“While Cucumber and Banana are fictional, we know that often the sweetest, most heart-warming, most tragic and most heartbreaking stories are real life tales. Tofu is all about highlighting the very real issues that we reference in the fictional shows – it will be a unique mixture of content made by the very talented Benjamin Cook.”
Cook, a journalist and prolific YouTuber, adds, “We’ll be interviewing real people about their real experiences. Men, women, every gender – all the pronouns! – trans or cis, straight or gay, bi, curious, maybe you’re sex-obsessed or take-it-or-leave-it, or maybe you’ve – whisper the words – never had sex and aren’t afraid to say so. We want to hear from you. No subject and no individual is off limits. We can’t wait to hear your stories.”
