  • F**ked

    What exactly are the rules in an open relationship? With no rulebook, it’s down to the couple to draw their lines… So when Dani tells Jess she might be interested in sleeping with guys again and it doesn’t go down too well, it looks like they might’ve hit their first hurdle. But with the world drowning in labels, why are people still expected to stick to their lane? F**KED raises the question many of us secretly ask ourselves – have I really explored and enjoyed my own sexuality? Whether straight, gay, bi, pansexual, asexual, or not sure who you are – there’s something about hitting 30 that makes you question whether you’re really being true to yourself. Sure, it’s not straightforward…but where’s the fun in that?

  • Happy New Year, Ms. Luna
