4Play Sex Tips for Girls [TV Series]

4Play: Sex Tips for Girls is a South African television drama series produced by Quizzical Pictures. The drama delivers HIV/AIDS prevention messages as it deals with the realities of life for four thirty-something South African women living in Johannesburg and how they go about finding love, sex and relationships. It focuses on the hair and beauty salon of single mother and entrepreneur Noma and her girlfriends Nox, Danny, and Amira.

Each of the women has her own unique approach to love, sex and surviving in the city. Using world class actors, director, and writers, this award winning series was designed to “break through AIDS messaging fatigue” to deliver vital health messages via the medium of entertainment. The series was written and directed by women for women.

In 2011, the drama garnered seven South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) nominations – the highest number for any television drama in that year’s awards.
