What is The Overthinker’s Guide To Sex?

The Overthinkers Guide To Sex is a weekly newsletter by journalist Franki Cookney.

**The Overthinkers Guide To Sex will return in 2023 - subscribe now to be the first to hear about it**

We live in a society that treats sex as sinful or superficial. It’s either something awfully naughty that we Must Not Mention or it’s just a Fact Of Life that we don’t need to dwell too much on because it should just come “naturally”.

Either way, the general consensus is that sex doesn't deserve the same critical thought, attention and analysis that we give to other areas of our lives. I disagree. Through my work as a journalist, I aim to make sex a subject we engage with as fully, openly, and enthusiastically as we do with politics, art, fitness, food and fashion. This newsletter is a way for you to be part of that.

The Overthinker’s Guide To Sex goes out every other Friday. Subscribe now and each new edition will slide effortlessly into your inbox!
