Intimacy can be a difficult thing to talk about. The conversations can be awkward or uncomfortable, and as a result, they often get swept under the rug.
In an attempt to mitigate the discomfort of such an omnipresent issue, the Daily is introducing a new series: "The Talk."
Through this series, we will discuss issues such as dating apps, sex work, sexual safety and more. We plan to publish one story each week for the rest of the semester addressing an issue related to relationships or sex.
Our hope is that by the end of "The Talk," we may have opened our readers up to these discussions in ways they hadn't thought of or may not have felt able to speak about before.
Many of these issues affect a lot of our readers, and we're ready to talk.
