While technically still legal to sell sexual services under the new law, PCEPA criminalizes many related aspects of sex work.

With the growing surge of Instagram educators, unabashed bloggers, and unedited online platforms, we are seeing a new era of sex-positivity. That in large part is thanks to the internet. This ever-handy tool that constantly lies in our hands and on our laps, has created opportunities for a like-minded community, evolution-based in education, and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a sexual being. The internet broadens access to life-changing information and breaks down barriers around sexuality. Before looking forward, we need to take a look back at the sexual revolutions that have made this possible.
