Writer Emma Forrest: ‘Trump’s election made me want to be celibate’

Our guest this week is film director, screenwriter and novelist Emma Forrest. Emma joins us to discuss her second memoir, Busy Being Free, which follows the breakdown of her marriage, her move from the glitz and glamour of LA to a tiny flat in north London, and her commitment to a period of celibacy (at least partially inspired by the election of Donald Trump). We chat about what it means to start again, life outside of marriage and the male gaze, and the “existential crisis” faced by a generation who grew up in the age of internet porn. Catch Love Lives on Independent TV and YouTube, as well as all major social and podcast platforms. Support this show Hosted on Acast. See for more information.
