'It's Just Sex' is a thought-provoking look at fidelity, lust, communication, and some of the things it takes for a marriage to survive and thrive.

It’s the story of three couples, all friends for years, and in different stages of their respective relationships whose lives are changed by the events of one night.   It is funny, with great one liners, and a story that draws you in.  

Phil is caught with a hooker by his wife Jo after she comes home early. That their marriage is in trouble is clear not only from her reaction, but by her lack of it! She doesn't want to talk about it and continues to clean, the one thing she has complete control over, and prepares for the arrival of their friends.

Kelly and Carl are a couple in the throes of the 'honeymoon period', the time in their relationship when they can't keep their hands off each other. Every word spoken between them is a suggestion towards having sex yet again.  

Worrier Greg sometimes can't get it up in the bedroom. It is one of many inadequacies laid bare for his lawyer wife Lisa to judge him with.

The evening progresses with our trio of couples enjoying a friendly gathering of drinks,  banter and ultimately an innocent game of true confessions.

However perhaps with the right amount of alcohol, there is no such thing as an innocent game of true confessions…but hey it’s just sex right!
