For years, our society has shied away from talking about important things. How many times have you asked your mother or father about the wide world of sexuality or how often has a teacher been so forthcoming as to speak about sexual pleasure and orgasms that go beyond the biology textbook? Maybe not too often. Today, however, the tide appears to be changing. The advent of social media brought with it greater freedom to express, share, and inform. It brought with it a bold, new generation of content creators and professionals to speak up about issues that they were really passionate about. To some, this meant raising awareness about the conversation surrounding sex and normalising talking about it openly. Of course, this hardly meant that the platform was free of judgment, labels, and criticism, but these creators have taken it in their stride (and how) and are all about creating sex-positive content, normalising behind-the-door conversations and more.
