Ladies around the world – Gillian Anderson wants YOU to tell her your sexual fantasies.
Gillian Anderson, plays a sex therapist (Jean Milburn) in the Netflix series “Sex Education.” She posted a video on Instagram and explained that she’s “launching a major exploration of women and sex.”
In the post, she asked women to send her their “most personal desires” for a book she is curating. “As women we know that sex is about more than just sex, but so many of us don’t talk about it. “Our deepest most intimate fears and fantasies remain locked away inside of us. Until someone comes along with the key. “Well here is your key.”
Viewers were asked if they had a secret fantasy which they would only share with those they “most trusted” — if anyone at all. “…whether you’re 18 or 80, you sleep with men or women or non-binary individuals or all or no one at all. I want to know your most personal desires. “Let’s open up this conversation…”
Participants can address their letters “Dear Gillian” and send them through an encrypted portal shared in her Instagram bio.
Gillian Anderson rose to fame in the 1990s playing agent Dana Scully in “The X-Files,” She also won an Emmy for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the Netflix series, “The Crown.”
She told The Guardian about the motivation behind her unusual request. She cited Nancy Friday’s multi million selling book “My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies,” which she says was revolutionary and provocative, and went to become “required reading for everyone.” Published in 1973, Anderson said she only read the book in 2018 to prepare for the role of Milburn. “Its unfiltered and painful honesty shook me,” Anderson said.
Since “Sex Education” was first broadcast, Anderson has been asked if women try to confide their sexual secrets and problems to her? She says “no.” Which is what gave her the idea for a book — a ‘My Secret Garden’ for the 21st century, so to speak. Which she says would be “revelatory and profound, and inclusive across the board.”
