30 Sex-Ed Lessons I Had to Learn from Big Mouth
Head Pushing Is a D*ck Move
No one likes a head pusher, but Big Mouth‘s sex-ed made it abundantly clear that pressuring someone into sexual acts isn’t consent. We’ve always known The Head Push is annoying, but during a high school theatre party, the older kids of Big Mouth school a Head Pusher on why he’s the absolute worst. Consent isn’t the absence of a “no,” it’s a freely given and enthusiastic “yes.” That not-so-innocuous head push takes away the “freely given” aspect of the equation, and Nick’s older sister Leah was completely right to throw her former crush Daniel out of her bedroom, her party, and her life. Sadly, consent isn’t a compulsory part of the American sex-ed curriculum.
