By Hanna Eisen Are you a prude, a good girl, or a slut? It seems like these are the only categories women can fall into regarding their sexuality. While women learn from a young age that they have to act according to societal standards, none of the possible decisions seem to be good enough.

It seems impossible to walk the fine line of being a “good girl”, especially if that does not fit with the (secret) desires one has.
