My Year Without Sex (Sarah Watt, 2009) examines the way ordinary people live and survive. Over one messy year in the life of an ordinary family, Watt's characters, Ross and Natalie, navigate their children – Louis and Ruby – nits, faith, Christmas, job insecurity, footy practice, more nits, and whether they will ever have sex again.
