Working with teenagers from Reykjavik, Iceland, the Teenage Choir of Love and Sex sing songs they have written themselves based on their own romantic and sexual experiences. As the choir travels it invites different young people locally to write songs with them and join the choir. They sing for themselves and each other. They sing for love, curiosity and heartbreak. They sing for every virgin, every slut and every thirsty bitch – so they never need to feel alone again.
