Like Angel’s previous pocketbook essay Daddy Issues (2019), this is a well-researched exploration of what sex, sexism, desire and power mean now. But Angel finishes by causing confusion and disappointment rather than igniting progress. ‘Part of the joys of sex might precisely be in discovering new, different ways to be touched: in being vulnerable to the unknown,’ she declares in a utopian flourish. Then, a few paragraphs later: ‘I don’t believe that we can ever leave power behind in sex, that we can enter a zone blissfully free of inequality.’ Either way, having good sex still relies on women — or anyone with less power — weighing up the risks. And that won’t make for a better tomorrow.
