Sexual Healing

Elsbeth Fraanje

Sexual Healing is about our primordial longing for intimacy and how crucial this is for every human being’s self-esteem. How does it affect you if intimacy is lacking in your life?

Evelien, spastic from birth and with merely disappointing sexual experiences in her pocket, is taking the first steps on her quest for intimacy. She discovers new parts of herself and she opens up to needs and desires she has been suppressing all her life. Evelien’s burgeoning curiosity and fervour clash with a deep-rooted low self-esteem. Still, she confronts herself and considers meeting a sex carer. Sexual Healing is about the necessity of intimate, human contact for every human being and how complex it can be to realise this if having sex is not evident.
