Magical Caresses | Sweet Jesus

Magical Caresses | Sweet Jesus

This film discusses topics of sex and masturbation; viewer discretion is advised.

What happens when masturbation has its “come to Jesus” moment? This animated short takes a light and humorous approach to examining religion’s moral taboos around the female body and desires. A story full of kindness and questioning, in which good and evil intermingle with prayer and caresses.

From the Magical Caresses animated documentary series, in which Lori Malépart-Traversy takes a playful and uninhibited look at solo sexuality.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised
