It’s 2020 and we’re still fighting for mainstream media to ditch slut-shaming. There are issues with commercialising queerness and feminism just to sell us capitalist-wrapped products rather than empowering ideas. However, in a cisheteropatriarchy it’s still refreshing to see adverts that are sex-positive!

I wasn’t the only person to marathon Season 2 of Sex Education as soon as it dropped on Netflix.
