"It's still about matriarchy. I treat it like a conceptual art project. It's about putting us in the right place - to deify female sexuality," she admitted, adding that she views her work on OnlyFans as an extension of her protest activity.

Tolokonnikova* said that she considers sex education important and discusses this topic with her 14-year-old daughter Gera.

"Me and my daughter - we openly discuss everything. This allows her to grow up without psychological trauma associated with sexuality," Nadezhda * added.
