Margaret Cho on How Sex Appeal Revolutionizes the Teen Sex Comedy

Sex Appeal, the new Hulu original movie, is very much both of those things — it’s a genuinely funny coming of age story and awesomely progressive.For one thing, its cast is populated with queer individuals. But it also centers on its female lead’s experience of sexual exploration and pleasure without judgment, but rather in a celebratory way, and it’s hilarious in all the ways that ring so true to real life. It was precisely this alchemy that made comedy legend Margaret Cho want to sign on to play one of the lead’s three moms.“I just loved the script, I thought it was so funny,” she tells The Advocate, adding how it conjured up memories of when she was a teenager trying to figure out sex.
