Why is Instagram so obsessed with sex?

In the 13 years I have been writing on this particular iteration of my blog, I've considered closing it down many times and for many different reasons. Mostly it's been because I've run out of ideas of things to write about, but occasionally I will find myself thinking that a particular social media platform has... Continue Reading →
