A lot of sex! For what is life without a dash of scintillating spice? We asked our sexpert, columnist and author Dorothy Black , that exact question, and she says you could equally ask if depicting eating or sleeping is necessary in storytelling. Some shows combine the two, such as Banshee , with such vigour that both become over the top and — dare I say it? Sometimes less really is more.

BDSM is a variety of often erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage , discipline , dominance and submission , sadomasochism , and other related interpersonal dynamics. Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves as practising BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent upon self-identification and shared experience. BDSM is now used as a catch-all phrase covering a wide range of activities, forms of interpersonal relationships , and distinct subcultures. BDSM communities generally welcome anyone with a non-normative streak who identifies with the community; this may include cross-dressers , body modification enthusiasts, animal roleplayers , rubber fetishists , and others.

It was an exciting development in a series primarily made by and for the queer community, especially because previous depictions of trans men on TV — always played by cisgender actors — had generally been less than positive. This time, though, there are two trans men in the main cast: Smith is joined by Leo Sheng as Micah, a gay adjunct professor of social work who lives with his friends, a lesbian couple. Sheng says he, too, found Max inauthentic on the original series, citing a scene in which Max comes out to a date who then calls him disgusting. Having McBee in the writers room helped shape the narratives around Pierce and Micah in an effort to portray trans men more accurately, says Ryan.
