Don't Not Have Sex Campaign
Our super serious 'Dont Not Have Sex' Campaign has launched! It plays on the same idea as Wingman. We want to reframe how people see reproductive rights, in a positive way. Watch it below.
Every Sperm is Sacred
Wingman is partly inspired by this brilliant classic Monty Python musical sketch:
When Scott buys the morning after pill for his beloved girlfriend Becky, he’s visited by an extroverted angel who tells him they've committed a grave evil by ending a potential life. To save his girlfriend from eternal damnation, he must impregnate 7 women in 7 days.
In a race against time Scott must rediscover his inner ladies man with the help of the sassy angel who becomes the perfect wingman. Together they hit the clubs, the workplace, the streets and more, finding ways to intentionally impregnate women, all while trying to hide the truth from Becky.
