It’s no secret that pornography is increasingly more accessible to teens in today’s technological age. Before, the only way you were seeing any porn action is if you stumbled across a parent or older sibling’s stash of dirty magazines or snuck into a smut film. Now, the super raunchy, hardcore stuff is really only a few clicks away, and kids today know how to clear their browser histories by the time they’ve reached the eighth grade. The truth is… There is nothing wrong with watching porn. The problem, however, stems from the reality that a lot of teens are using porn, not only to get hot and bothered, but to actually learn about sex.

In this week’s Podcast, Emily takes her show on the road.. Literally! Joined by two leading experts in the sex therapy field, Emily records this show live from Catalyst Con, a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality.
Whether because they are the uneducated or just plain uncomfortable, people treat sex like the elephant in the room. No one talks about what’s going on between the sheets. But if you can’t talk about it with your doctor, or even with the person you’re having sex with, how the hell can it ever get better? This show is all about breaking down your sexual barriers and opening up those lines of communication to pave the way to amazing sex!
We all remember how we got “the talk”, right? It was either our parents sitting us down to explore their own, very out-dated, copy of “the birds and the bees” or we watching those awkward videos at school with fellow fifth grade classmates. However, one school in the Bay Area took sex education to the next level. Parents of The Fremont Unified school district began a petition to ban the sex-ed book “Your Health Today” due to its “inappropriate” topic choices.

However, one school in the Bay Area took sex education to the next level. Parents of The Fremont Unified school district began a petition to ban the sex-ed book “Your Health Today” due to its “inappropriate” topic choices. In attempt to replace their old textbook, dating back to over a decade ago, they decided to go a more graphic and updated route. This new book not only covers the anatomical basics, but also educates on topics such as sex toys and their usage, bondage, and even how to create an online dating profile! Continue Reading
To all you city dwellers; late night delivery service isn’t just about pizza or your favorite dish from the Chinese restaurant down the street. For those in a time crunch, condoms are now the new delivery commodity. Founder Talia Frenkel started the 1 hour condom delivery company L. or L. Condoms in her efforts to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and research. In the last decade many surveys taken by high school students in the U.S. have shown a ten percent drop in the number of students who use condoms. We often brush off the consequences of unprotected sex until it is far from too late. Talia’s passion for promoting protected sex stemmed from her career. As a well known photojournalist, she travelled the world and began to form a very strong attachment to those affected by this abundant epidemic. She had a front row seat to photographing tsunamis, earthquakes, many natural disasters, poverty stricken towns, and a plethora of sick individuals. Capturing a multitude of photos and freezing moments in time of those suffering from this disease, Talia invented a way for anyone to able to practice safe sex. Promoting the idea that “…safe sex is our human right.” Continue Reading
What do you wish you’d learned in Sex Ed? Emily teamed up with The Sinclair Institute® to rewrite the sextbooks, and today she’s announcing the winners of her contest and reading the best listener-submitted suggestions and stories. Her work may be needed now more than ever, as reports show that American teen guys aren’t reciprocating in oral sex enough, and Wyoming of all places is labeled the national epicenter of sex toy usage.

I asked everyone I know, and don’t know for that matter, to tell me what they wish they had learned in Sex Ed. Instead of describing sex as a lethal baby-making activity, many agree that Sed Ed should’ve said something about the possibility for pleasure. Instead of presenting abstinence as the only option for teens, perhaps Sex Education should promote sex positivity, consent, and masturbation. I guess that’s just a little too progressive for High School education. If we the people did Sex Education, here’s what we’d teach: Continue Reading
