‘How to Hack Birth Control’ is a comedy digital series on how to navigate and take charge in today’s contraception universe. Told through the sharp wit and perky charm of the narrator Ruth, Birth Control takes a run at a hit list of ‘not supposed to talk about,’ scenarios. How do you get the morning after pill quickly and for free? Where can you hide your birth control? How do you get your doctor to listen to you? All of the things women want to know but are taught to be too afraid to ask. Filled with backpack cats, patriotic American eagles, musical numbers, and the game show, ‘Let’s Not Make a Baby,’ each memorable contraceptive milestone is a riotous new discovery. Authentically raw and LOL fun, ‘How to Hack Birth Control,’ will make you wonder what else sex-ed never told you. Whether people are pro-choice or pro-life, this series is about educating people so that they feel in control of their reproductive choices and have the information to make decisions that are best for them. http://www.BirthControlHacks.com
“I’m so thrilled to be bringing ‘How to Hack Birth Control’ to the public on such a grand scale for such an important cause. What better way to educate than through comedy?” states director Sassy Mohen. She goes on to say, “I am so honored to have the support of NARAL, Truth Be Told and SheNY as these groups focus their efforts on a variety of causes and issues which benefit women in America.”
