Sexuality and Pleasure
Sexuality, it’s such an integral part of sex ed, yet rarely given the day of light. This season is all about people discovering their sexuality and accepting who they are. Asexuality, bisexuality, gay and pansexuality are all talked about in the second season. Particularly noticeable are pansexuality and especially asexuality because those are very rarely portrayed in a hit show. The best quote of the series definitely goes to Dr. Milburn, “Sex doesn’t make us whole. And so, how could you ever be broken?”
Season 2 delves a bit deeper into an aspect of sex that is often completely neglected during sex ed, which is pleasure. Ya know, that one thing that makes having sex enjoyable for all parties and thus is pretty important to talk about. Opening the floor up to female orgasms, gay sex and anal sex which are three aspects rarely, if ever, mentioned during sex ed.
A really important storyline is Aimee’s sexual assault. Just like we need to talk about sex ed, we also need to talk about sexual assault in all its forms and this one often doesn’t get shown on TV. Seeing how Aimee deals with it and how her friends are there for her is important, especially in a show that so many teens watch.
