For those of you unfamiliar, Hannah Witton is a pretty famous vlogger who covers sex and relationships, along with some lifestyle and politics/ feminism stuff too. She won Best Sex & Relationships Influencer at the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards last year, and this year she released a book on sex and relationships, brilliantly titled Doing It.
I’m one of the few people who seemed to have a positive sex education growing up. I had sex education in school at age 9 that covered how it works, contraception, not getting pressured and the like, and I learned a fair amount from teenage magazines too. But looking back, it was quite one-sided. It seemed to be the expectation that you’d get a boyfriend, fall in love, agonize as to whether you’re “ready”, then have sex. So I got to 18 yet to find a boyfriend and was like whaaaaa? But plenty of people don’t get into a relationship until their twenties. Some people aren’t that fussed about sex “meaning something”. Some people are gay, bisexual, or asexual. Some people just aren’t that interested in sex or relationships at all.
