The Politics of Pleasure

Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

Does pleasure exist outside of politics? Can we have feminist sex? And how has the online realm affected young people’s views on the subject?

Professor Amia Srinivasan, a philosopher at The University of Oxford, is delving into these thorny questions with British Library curator Polly Russell. They’re laying things bare with Laurie Nunn, the creator of TV drama Sex Education, examining some unusual objects from the past with historian Zoe Strimpel and heading to a school to hear from a group of 16 year old students.
