Sexuality in Conversation

NSFW: A New Wave

Does nudity discredit intellect? That’s the question six female writers of various backgrounds wanted to present in our pages when they approached Playboy last fall.

In think pieces, academic discussions, podcasts and tweets, society is still contending with women who reject the notion that sexual expression and success must be mutually exclusive. In a time when conversations about sex are increasingly politicized, these journalists, columnists and authors are uniting to speak out on what it means to be simultaneously autonomous, successful, proud and powerful. In a word, free.
