"Tawdry and salacious " [View all]

Jesus. Let me explain to a few of the Pearl-clutching virginal commentators on tv that two adult individuals having consensual sex who wished to remain private are not authors of “tawdry and salacious” narratives nor in fact are these narratives tawdry and salacious. The parties involved did not video themselves and upload it to Onlyfans. What’s more, Billions of people have sexual intercourse yearly and their behavior cannot be classified as such and would be angry and horrified to have their behavior described using these adjectives .

This couple had Propinquity propink and wound up having sex. You can discuss the financial aspect of this, you can discuss the ethical aspect of this, but the words “tawdry” and “salacious” do not belong. These terms are propagandistic and unnecessary.
