    Collaborative development of sex education programs...how could it have taken this long to have this idea? Really elegant, simply way to make sex ed more effective. Kudos.

    Love your point about the prominence of sex in media but the dearth of it in public conversation. It's counterintuitive to expose kids to so many lyrics and images but not give them the tools to speak about it or the safe space to ask the questions, especially when decidedly unsexy issues like violence and sex work are involved. Good luck!

      Thanks for commenting Rosalie! Creating more spaces for young people to talk openly and honestly about sexuality is key.

    YES YES YES! This is SO important and essential. We totally have to change how we talk to students about sex. We MUST include them in the design of such talks and we MUST talk to them about sex in a practical, honest way. What an awesome project. Keep it up! :)

      Thanks N Beck! Yes, in many ways we have to youth as the experts for discovering innovative ways to teach sex ed.

  • Alessandra Rizzotti

    Those stats are really shocking. It's wonderful that you're encouraging youth to not just talk about protection, but also gender, sexuality, and body image.

      Thanks Alessandra! I think those are all an inherent part of the conversation that is unfortunately continuously overlooked.
