Anne faces the dilemma, 28-year-old Brooklyn divorced the striking new web series Unicornland launched Valentine’s Day.
Walled, Anne is ashamed to express her desires, but she is determined to go beyond her passivity. Bluffing than the real brave, she fell into the confusing world of sex in a film, to see if she could understand herself.
Unicornland is the writer’s passionate project / producer Lucy Gillespie, which is based on his own divorce after a successful experience and funded the 8-part series of Kickstarter sports.
But their sexual Odyssey is not designed to find comfort or happiness, it is a kind of exercise to her sexual self and some authority, hoping to see what kind of life can have beyond their own self boundaries. In an uncertain journey, sexual self-reliance leads to self-realization.
Over the course of Unicornland’s eight too-brief episodes Annie (played by Laura Ramadei) inserts herself into a succession of awkward hook-ups with couples, where she finds herself tiptoeing around the relationship baggage that her playmates inevitably bring into the bedroom.
Along the way, she explores bondage, erotic toys, role playing, a lesbian three-way, masturbating with a stuffed animal and, finally, a dizzying sex party where none of the behaviours seem familiar or even appealing.
“I spent most of my early 20s obsessed with achieving the alpha female trifecta of marriage, family and career,” Gillespie wrote in an article describing her reasons for becoming an online auteur. “Sexual exploration was what women did when they had neither a plan nor self-respect.
“The hardest part of joining the sex-positive scene,” she adds, “was facing the constant question: What did I want?”
That conundrum isn’t helped by the fact that dating protocols can seem superficial — and a bit demeaning — to the newly single.
“You’re divorced. You’re allowed to get slutty,” one of Annie’s pals tells her when they get dressed up one night and head to a bar frequented by “heteronormative fuckboys.”
“It’s 2016,” she replies. “Does a woman need an excuse?
“We have the sociological, psychological, neurological data to change the way we relate as a species but we still dress ourselves up like these wounded victims and throw ourselves at roofie-toting cavemen.”
Unicornland arouses our concern that one of its sponsors is the Brooklyn independent underwear brand thistle and spire, last year’s collection of lace boudoir fragments.
Thistle and spire founder Margie Bacon and Lily Chen contributed all the sexy underwear, often appearing in Unicornland, which is the temptation of Anne’s key part of Arsenal. Not that it always has an advantage over her works, however.
“You and your frivolous underwear think you can come here to steal my man?” Her new friend blurted out in a role-playing scene. It is foreseeable that Anne can not judge that she is serious.
Unicornland is interesting, a bit chilling, like a good sex, you will want it to last longer. Like the “Sex and the City” or the girl, there are plenty of material that can be easily developed into a complete TV series, and feminist subtext self-determination to attract the vast number of users to explore the millennials to find the purpose and passion.
