Are women who post ironic sexy photos on Instagram really reclaiming their bodies?

I have just been scrolling through Instagram looking at bottoms. Pert bottoms, bikinied bottoms, bottoms rising out of soapy water, bottoms cleaved around dental-floss G-strings, bottoms photographed in the bathroom mirror, the bedroom mirror, the hotel mirror.

The last time I looked through my teenage daughter’s Instagram, she banned me for a year, but this time it’s with her blessing. She’s showing me what young women post as part of a conversation we’re having about “raunch culture” and the pressure to be sexy, in full peachy glory.

Not just bare bums. “Look at this one,” she says.

A 17-year-old she doesn’t know is carrying her boobs between folded arms like heavy shopping.

There are endless underwear shots.

I thumb through hundr of teenage bedroom interiors.
