Being a woman no longer means simply being

a mother, a housekeeper and a wife. The feminism

revolution of the 60s has given us license

to work wherever we want and manage our

relationships however we want. But as traditional

gender roles become blurred, what’s

the effect on how men and women navigate

sexual relationships? Is equal sex better sex?

Or does this departure from strict dating and

sexual rules make our lives more complicated?
