Lessons from a 7ft Penis (Web Series)
Norman Nawrocki is a musician, writer, performer and an all‐around entertainer and for years he has been touring North America with what he has dubbed ‘sex comedy cabarets’. These shows with titles such as ‘Sex Toys”, “I Don’t Understand Women” and “Stories from a 7ft Penis” are sex‐positive, anti‐homophobic and anti‐misogynist shows have Norman acting as over 20 different characters such as a high school sex education teacher called Mrs. Robinson, a singing and dancing butt plug, a giant vagina named Virginia Vagina, and a giant purple penis named Dickhead. While many of his characters are comical, using humour as a method of diffusing embarrassing or hot button issues surrounding sexuality and sexual politics, Norman doesn’t joke about serious issues, and tackles subjects such as violence against women, sexual harassment and gay-bashing.
