Does Riverdale overseuxalize its teenage characters?

  • “It’s no secret that some teens have sex,” says Gianluca Russo. “However, the voyeuristic way Riverdale has decided to up the sexual ante as of late feels like a strange way to capitalize on a classic ‘sex sells’ trope, a narrative device with a long history, especially where teen soaps are involved…Yet while shows are entirely within their right to acknowledge the fact that yes, teenagers can be sexually active, it’s worrying that storylines would dive into these themes without moving the plot along in a meaningful way.” ALSO: Lili Reinhart defends her controversial Riverdale striptease.
