Janelle Monáe has narrated a new Netflix docuseries explaining a wide range of sex-related issues, because she believes that sex education in schools is lacking a lot. Sex, Explained is a five-part series by Netflix, in collaboration with Vox, which will cover many sex-related topics “from the biology of attraction to the history of birth control”. The first episode is devot4ed to the formation of sexual fantasies. The episodes are short and informative, with colorful animations and wide-ranging interviews, and the queer pop star as a main narrator.
Monáe came out as queer in 2018, and the ‘Dirty Computer’ singer told Rolling Stone: “Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf**ker.” The star explained that she had identified as bisexual at first, “but then later I read about pansexuality and was like: ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’”
