[Extract:] Karley Sciortino and Jessica Valenti write about sex. In a range of media, on websites, for print and digital magazines and newspapers, in podcasts, books and documentaries, Sciortino and Valenti use both reportage and personal experience as example and argument in framing a sex-positive, education-focused and feminist-aligned discourse that seeks to explore dominant cultural understandings of sex in the contemporary world. These writers are young, political, selfconsciously and self-righteously Millennial and they arc professional journalists at a time of rapid change for the profession.
