Prettybird director Sindha Agha has depicted the female experience of painful sex as part of a visceral visual essay series for BBC Three.

Created as part of the online channel’s ‘Body Language’ series, Agha’s film contrasts a feminine pastel palette against the painful imagery of broken glass and glinting knives. The film is narrated by the words of sufferer Rhoda Hierons, who compares the pain of sex as “glass shattering inside you and embedding itself”.

Agha’s visuals include honey being dripped into a hand-blown glass vase, a Jenga tower made from pink wafers and a mango filled with cut-up straws.
