It’s been a tumultuous few months in the world of sexology and social controversy! First, Cardi B and Meagan Thee Stallion stirred the pot with the release of their single WAP (stands for Wet A** P*ssy…something I aspire to daily), and shortly thereafter, Netflix released the film “Cuties” which has been heavily criticized for depicting the sexualization of 11-year old girls.
But is the movie “Cuties” actually promoting pedophilia? Or is it an accurate depiction of young girls “coming of age” in a world that offers them no rights of passage and no education on what it is to be a sexually healthy adult? And how does #WAP fit into this?
This episode of Sex Is Medicine explores the recent controversy over #WAP vs. #Cuties and the connection between adult sexual expression and the impact that may have on our youth.
- Cuties – what is the movie actually attempting to communicate?
- What points in the film stood out as problematic?
- Is there a link between “Cuties” and #WAP?
- How do parents address these issues with children?
- What the controversy around #WAP reveals about our society and how we view women and sexuality
This was a deep conversation about a deep and multifaceted topic.
