“At that time, censorship was such that social criticism wasn't really allowed but the government was far more generous when it came to ideas of sexual expression. I guess censorship had left me wandering lost with no idea of how to move forward and depicting sexuality almost shone a light for me in seeing a path. Not only that, but the frustrations I mentioned earlier had made me want to step away from the difficulties of scripts with social critique and I found that depictions of sexuality allowed me to say things I subsequently realised I really wanted and needed to say, regardless of the fact that they were easier to get censor approval for.”
