We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies and whether we're doing it 'right'.
Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.
Flo Perry is a writer and illustrator who has managed to make a career out of her passion for drawing breasts and penchant for quizzing people on their sex lives at parties. She's a proud bisexual who fancies nearly all human beings and assumes everyone fancies her. As such, she's good at dealing with rejection. Perry is a former BuzzFeed editor and expert on making illustrations go viral. Before that she did a degree in chemistry; we can all agree that was a mistake. She was born and raised in the wilds of North London and still lives there with two lovely homosexual housemates and a terrible cat.
