Grant Busé: The Birds And The Beats (Grant Busé)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2018

In honour of the thorough sex education that frankly no one had, Grant Busé attempts to cram all the basics into the hour – feat. live hiphop. Obviously. From consent to condoms to the other awkward, sex-related matters that teachers and parents get flustered talking about, Busé approaches the subject with a refreshing openness. While his self-professed white straight male perspective on sex wasn’t revolutionary to me, it was hard not to chuckle at his probing interactions with coyer audience members, and to sing along to his delightfully pervy beats. And if most the conversations you’ve had about sex involved little more than a stork, pixelated diagrams of cartoon genitals, or cryptic plant-related metaphors…well, you need this.
