30 Sex-Ed Lessons I Had to Learn from Big Mouth
The Female Body Isn’t Inherently Sexual
We’re in a burgeoning era of body positivity (bye-bye, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, hello Fenty!), but there’s more to loving your body than feeling sexy. Big Mouth‘s second episode on season two teaches its leading ladies to appreciate their bodies during a trip to a spa. Rather than showing confident naked women through the male gaze like in Porky’s (or basically any other movie), Big Mouth depicted women’s bodies without sexualizing them while emphasizing their beauty and power. Instead of showing the female body as a sexual plaything or some mechanism for churning out babies, Big Mouth‘s sex-ed emphasized their human worth.
