This week’s episode of Sex Out Loud features Tristan Taormino interviewing Magnus Sullivan, the screenwriter and producer of the award-winning film Marriage 2.0: A Modern Love, starring India Summer, Ryan Driller, Christopher Ryan, Nina Hartley, Carol Queen, Mickey Mod, Reid Mihalko, Dylan Ryan, and more. “Marriage 2.0″ celebrates a modern redefinition of the committed relationship as a springboard for adventure, where unfettered physical and emotional intimacy can fuel passion while strengthening the bond with those we love. Sullivan will discuss his journey to making porn, what inspired Marriage 2.0, and what he hopes to bring to adult cinema during his career.
Magnus Sullivan (screenwriter/co-producer) is a Bay Area native whose interest in the dynamics of open marriages, their challenges, and their opportunities for growth, has now been the focus of two movies. His first film, “An Open Invitation,” remains one of the bestselling movies on the subject, and earned India Summer a 2012 AVN Award for Best Actress. “Marriage 2.0″ exponentially expands the scope of “Open Invitation” and makes the Bay Area itself a character. “San Francisco is at the center of a relationship revolution,” Sullivan says, “and we need to capture that.”
“I do not aim to make ‘women-centric porn’ because it’s trendy, I aim to make meaningful, erotic content because it’s important to everyone.”
