"Coming Soon" follows one woman’s journey to sexual fulfillment after being in a passionless eight year relationship with her boyfriend. Rachel Larks’ show also explores themes of kink, queerness, consent, and non-monogamy.

Real predators and monsters were being discovered and finally being held to account. And I was like ‘What about everybody? What about the whole culture?
Rachel Lark
