An excellent op-ed from Melissa Gira-Grant who never ceases to amaze me with her ability to write about complicated things with clarity and complexity.

Public representations of sex tend to the extremes: it's either the worst or the best. But what about all the sex we have that's neither. What about the sex that's just good enough?

About Cory Silverberg
I was raised in the 1970s by a children’s librarian and a sex therapist, and have spent most of my life trying to decide which is better; reading about sex or having it. I’m more invested in social justice than identity politics, but you’re welcome to call me gender-variant (or maybe a queer person in a straight package). I often work collaboratively from the position of an ally, speaking-with, rather than speaking-for, speaking up rather than talking down. I dress like a bank teller, but would never be good at that job as I’d just want to give you all the money.
