GOSSIP GIRL (2021): Heterosexual Age-Gap Affairs & Schoolgirl Lipstick Lesbians

In addition to the (heterosexual) teen analingus, fellatio, and sex, in the 2021 Gossip Girl reboot, nympholepsy and heterosexual age-gap affairs are portrayed

For example, on episode 3, Lies Wide Shut, we learn that George, Reema's husband, was abruptly fired from his job, because George knew that his boss, a father at Constance Billard [High] School, expensed escorts. And Wendy, a teacher at Constance Billard and Reema's co-worker, discovered that, "One of the escorts he hired was a senior at Constance."

Thus, like the teen prostitutes in the wealthy district of Rome, at least one senior at Constance worked as a paid escort. 

Interestingly, in episode 4, Fire Walks With Z, Julien, a junior at Constance, receives a number of Venmo payment alerts on her iPhone

"You're being Venmoed for BJs, HJs, poppers, urine, your celebrity fleshlight, and "seven grams of better coke than the last batch," Luna informs Julien. 

Although, the Venmo payments for teen blowjobs, handjobs and urine, were part of a prank from Zoya, a Constance sophomore and Julien's half-sister, in the context of the teen escort(s) at Constance, the prank is revealing.

Julien may have been pranked, but after she shared with the club in Lies Wide Shut, "I'm in my underwear on the Daily Mail." She tells Max, "We'll WhatsApp that to Timothée." But then she thought about the possible repercussions of sexting 25-year-old Timothée a picture of a first semester prep school junior in her panties. "Actually, don't. You'll get arrested. 

(IRL, even though Timothée didn't request the picture, he would have possibly been canceled, and Julien would have been consoled.)

In episode 5, Hope Sinks, Emily, another Constance junior, shares with Aki, her schoolmate and boyfriend, that a middle-aged celebrity is giving her "the eye": 

"Please hurry, because whoever is dressed as Bruce Willis has been giving me the eye for a half hour. That is Bruce Willis. Hurry faster."

I wonder why the writer's choose Bruce Willis and not someone like Jerry Seinfeld or Leonardo DiCaprio

And in Hope Sinks, Zoya is seduced by Simon, a New York magazine reporter, because he suspects that Zoya is Gossip Girl. Jessica Goldstein wrote to Simon on Vulture in her Gossip Girl Week 5 Report Card": 

"Stalking, flirting with, and lying to a child (Zoya is 15!) for your article is gross [...]"

The Gossip Girl reboot appears to be (mostly) aimed at (young) women and non-heteronormativity viewers, but, arguably, the teen (lipstick) lesbian kissing scene in Lies Wide Shut was arguably aimed at (young) men.

Lastly, the first six episodes of the reboot are continuing the age-gap affair motif from the original series. For example, on episode 7 of the 6th season of Gossip Girl, Blair (Leighton Meester) "Invoke[d] the order of the secrets" in an attempt to blackmail representatives of the five most powerful Manhattan prep schools into attending her fashion show. 

And how did she attempt to blackmail the nymphets from The Nightingale-Bamford School, The Brearley School, The Chapin School, and The Spence School to comply with her demand?

Blair surmised that at least one of the prep school teens had an affair with her drama teacher, another with her Latin teacher and another with her father's business partner.

"Invoke the order of the secrets [...] If they don't do what you say, spill their secrets [...] And if your refuse, she'll have no choice but to reveal your affair with your drama teacher. Your Latin teacher. Your father’s business partner.” "
