In the 21st century sexuality is more explicit than it has ever been and most see sexuality as central to who they are. Yet we increasingly seek to eradicate sexuality from our public lives. Most no longer think flirting acceptable in the workplace, and the rise of dating apps has made sexual advances in bars and clubs less common.
Should we see sexuality as irrelevant to our everyday lives, and regard it as a realm best isolated from our work and friendship groups? Or are our sexual desires the key to our identity, and attempts to remove it from the rest of our lives a repression of our true selves?
Author of bestselling Hood Feminism, Mikki Kendall, renowned journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes Niki Adams and novelist Olivia Fane grapple with sexuality's place in today's world. Hosted by Rana Mitter.
