A child-free badass on the search for orgasm equality.... in a world where women in heterosexual relationships still do the bulk of housework and childcare, yet orgasm the least during sex, Conway asks: are we really that far along in the fight for equality? Who really benefits from marriage and babies? How can straight women finally negotiate equal pleasure in the bedroom? Blunt take from this internationally touring comic with over 100 million views online.

Outspoken, and by British standards, bracingly candid about sex, Conway has the wit, relatability and physical skills to fully convey the ridiculousness of the act and the preliminary farce of modern dating. Initially at least, the darker aspects of the patriarchy overwhelms her comedic intent though.

Conway is a vivacious performer who does not shy away from the grotesque. Her style borders on absurdist, but she does nothing but ‘keep it real’. Amongst the craziness is some poignant feminist commentary that is earnest and insightful. Her unhinged persona is very fun to watch, and the unpredictable nature of her material works to her advantage by catching the audience off-guard with uninhibited sexual content....

The full house at Laughing Horse was up for an hour of relatable comedy, mostlyaimed at the ladies in the crowd – but I am more than sure the gents went away with a flea intheir ear and maybe some tips on how to put a smile on their missus’ face....

This was my first time seeing award-winning standup Eleanor Conway, so didn’t really know what to expect – but by the time I left, she was my hero....Despite the hot pink publicity photos, there’s nothing Barbie about this anti-patriarchy message from Eleanor Conway – instead, it’s real, visceral, and a bit nasty in places.

Eleanor Conway's return to the Fringe is a triumph, built upon the call for equality in and out of the bedroom....Conway is an animated, commanding figure, brandishing impressively shiny black stilettos matched only by the glint in her eye. She is an infectious presence, but also a powerful storyteller, able to shift her scenes from obscene (but great) jokes to something more sincere without hitting a bung note. There are guffaws and belly laughs aplenty, especially when Conway turns to more risque and outlandish punch lines – situations where too many other comics would fail to rouse a reaction from the crowd....
