Young people talk back on sex ed

young people on bedIt's been said more than once that the best antidote to the prevalence of sexualized imagery in our culture is to provide young people with good information on healthy sexuality. With that in mind the Fresh Focus Video Contest asked, “Why is sex so interesting and sex ed so boring?”

More than sixty entries from young people aged 15-30 answered that question, each a one-to-ten minute video that communicates the authors' experience with sex education and their ideas for how it can be improved.

This contest is a great example of young people taking on authorship of media and using it to express themselves on important issues.
