Documentary series written and directed by Tristan Ferland Milewski
starring sexologist and best-selling author Ann-Marlene Henning

The successful and critically acclaimed German TV Award and Grimme Online Award nominated documentary format “MAKE LOVE” is entering its fifth season on ZDF.

In all its seasons the documentary series MAKE LOVE questions stereotypes in sexual relationships and gender roles, body ideals and social norms. On her journey, Ann-Marlene Henning meets people who have been happily married for 50 years, as well as persons who choose alternative relationship models for themselves, opening their relationship or live polyamorous. She meets a trans guy who empowers himself sexually and a young woman who identifies as asexual.
The series talks about exclusion by normalized beauty standards and gender binaries and celebrates diversity. Breaking the silence, it explores good sex, regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation, whether with somebody else or with ourselves.

„Explicit without being pornographic; empathetic without being presumptuous; always funny, never embarrassing. A voice like this has been missing in the public debate …“

„One of the bravest and most provocative German productions since a very long time.“

„Yes, you need to be brave to do this kind of format. […] It’s good that the broadcaster was brave. And it’s good that the broadcaster worked with the right people.“
