Consent, Pleasure, & Pegging: The Sex Advice Millennial Women Never Got

Kasandra Brabaw

Let’s roll back the clock a few years to high school or middle school, or whenever it was that your school offered sex education — if they even offered it at all. Do you remember talking about consent, enthusiastic or otherwise? What about power dynamics in a sexual relationship? Or orgasms — did your teacher even mention the “O” word?
