starring sexologist and best-selling author Ann-Marlene Henning
The successful and critically acclaimed German TV Award and Grimme Online Award nominated documentary format “MAKE LOVE” is entering its fifth season on ZDF.
„Explicit without being pornographic; empathetic without being presumptuous; always funny, never embarrassing. A voice like this has been missing in the public debate …“
„One of the bravest and most provocative German productions since a very long time.“
Make Love, not Volksmusik – open-minded, serious, unrivalled […] The first episode, which just aired, avoids all kinkiness, greasiness, sleaziness that could be inherent to this subject.“
„Yes, you need to be brave to do this kind of format. […] It’s good that the broadcaster was brave. And it’s good that the broadcaster worked with the right people.“
In our allegedly enlightened society where sex is omnipresent in the public sphere, the true taboos are the silence, insecurities and knowledge gaps within our private relationships. The documentary series MAKE LOVE takes us into the authentic and individual realities of different persons between the ages of 20 and 100 alongside sexologist, couple therapist and best selling author Ann-Marlene Henning. Her expertise, tact and exhilarant naturalness allow Ann-Marlene Henning to help the couples (and us) break the silence.
Regardless of age, sexual orientation, gender, whether with or without disabilities – while interacting with Ann-Marlene Henning, the partners learn to really perceive themselves and their significant other, thus finding true intimacy. With the help of real couples, MAKE LOVE additionally shows many lesser-known facts about good sex – with yourself or with someone else.
