The Midwest Teen Sex Show

By July 13, 2007

Follow me on:

I highly recommend checking out the first two episodes of this funny, charming, and occasionally educational video podcast. Here's how they explain it on their site:

Teens and sex. It happens. Not every teen is having sex and not every teen is abstaining. We hope the Midwest Teen Sex Show will create a space for frank discussion of all things related to teen sexuality. Broadcast media shies away from any real exploration of the topic, and they forget that not all teens live in Orange County. So subscribe on iTunes, download our latest episode, tell your friends, and let’s get it on! (Midwest style).

The first episode on masturbation is a stellar debut, featuring such pearls of wisdom as “masturbation is the anti-drug” and pointing out what every sex educator knows, that saying “where the clitoris is” is a very difficult thing to say.

I could do without the “freak” bashing in episode 2 (on abstinence), but I bet it comes more from ignorance than meanness (in fact host Nikol seems like anything but mean). And the best thing you can do is watch it and join in the discussion on their site.

After wasting too much time trolling YouTube for engaging sex ed. videos this show is a total find. Thanks to Petra Boynton for pointing it out.
