"As we continue to see a spike in interest in sex and relationships content from our newsletter audience, we believe the intimacy and immediacy of email is exactly the right format for this type of expert relationship-related content from our trusted brands. We're thrilled to bring NSFW(ish) directly to our users' inboxes in partnership with Maria Del Russo, whose relatable, frank, and funny voice resonates with readers," said Amanda Wolfe, Senior Director, Content Strategy for the Health & Parenting vertical at Meredith.

NSFW(ish) is inclusive and empowering and will cover topics such as:

  • Sexual health
  • Online dating
  • Self love

"Gen Z and Millennial women have a unique perspective on navigating sex, love and relationships, which we'll explore in NSFW(ish)," says Del Russo. "My hope is that people who read our newsletter will feel empowered to chart a course for their own lives that makes them happy."

NSFW(ish) is complementary to Meredith's audience, and will be promoted across Meredith's network of sites. Readers can sign up for NWSF(ish) here.
