#SEXEDUCATION episode 4 thoughts:
Aaaah why did they end Ruby/Otis so soon? I was really enjoying their arc and dynamics. Also, I’m so glad that the relationship pushed Ruby to open up to Olivia and Anwar and deepen her friendships with them.
This episode was so interesting to me. It shows us all the ways in people connect romantically (or do not) depending on interests, views etc. like Jean/Jakob: no common interest, yes connection. Maureen/Sr. Groff: yes common interest, no connection.
Ruby/Otis: no common interest,
Slight connection. Isaac/Maeve: yes common interest, yes connection. Eric/Adam: no common interest, yes connection.

So on and so forth, and I LOVED IT!!!

We have a drug that protects from #HIV. True or False? #ph260720
My friend Steve texted me last year asking how he could convince his partner Ed to see a doctor.

Steve said, “Something weird is happening to him. He can’t walk, his speech is slurred, and his mood changes. He’s a totally different person.” #ph260720 #HIV
I asked him why Ed is reluctant to see doctors. Steve replied, “He has always hated seeing doctors because he feels judged by the health system.”

This is the story of Ed’s experience and how we could have prevented his death from #AIDS 8 weeks later. #ph260720 #providerbias

SAFE BINDING 🧵
I am so glad Layla's story resonated with so many of you! All sorts of people bind their chests for all sorts of reasons. Whatever your reason, you need to stay safe. Unsafe binding can lead to some pretty nasty consequences, so a few notes to follow here...
- Use a binder that is made for purpose. I love @gc2bapparel and #spectrumoutfitters, these are the ones used in #SexEducation, but other brands are available. Do your research and find what is right for you. NEVER bind with bandages or duct tape.
- Avoid binding for over 8 hours a day. I know it's tempting, but it really isn't worth it long term.
- Take regular breaks. If you are binding at school/work consider binders that are easy to remove to give yourself a break (front zip, side Velcro etc)

As the creator and top-billed executive producer of #SexEducation, Laurie Nunn has collaborated with several writers for the show.

But the seventh episode of Season 2 was an installment she knew she had to write alone. latimes.com/entertainment-… Image
“It was quite a personal story for me.”

Nunn opens up to the @latimes about the backstory of the scene. latimes.com/entertainment-…
“When it happened, everyone was like, 'This is the moment of Season 2 that everybody’s gonna remember.'”

More of what the actors have to say about being a part of it: latimes.com/entertainment-…

1/BINGE TV OBSERVATIONS

It's been 14 months of binge w/gf. Some key conclusions. Some new, some not.

What were yours?
2/ The great nation state of #Canada 🇨🇦 has unbelievably disproportionate number of actors per its population.

I mean, seriously, everyone is Canadian!! 😆
3/I love TV shows from down under🇦🇺. Particularly enjoyed #Rake, #Offspring & #Sisters. But it's like they need to use same actors at same time! With only 12 million less ppl than Commonwealth sister country 🇨🇦, what's up with this!

Also, hope some of the actors hit US market.

"If you're putting something — a part of your body or a toy — into a partner, you're a top." @MattBaume for @them. #sexualhealth #sexeducation them.us/story/how-to-t…
BTW, although it's not explicitly mentioned. That goes for #pegging, too. them.us/story/how-to-t…
What is pegging? Glad you asked! Pegging is when "a vagina-owning partner wears a harness, pops on a strap-on dildo ... gives their penis-having partner a lil' butt action." @paisleyrgilmour for @CosmopolitanUK. #queer #sexualhealth #SexEd

Before I started comedy I taught #SexEducation, going into schools teaching about relationships, boundaries, puberty, that kind of thing.

When I say "going into schools", I was invited. I didn't just stand in the playground with a banana & a condom talking to kids about sex!
Hearing this, someone recently asked, "if you catch #CoronaVirus from a lover does that make it an STI?"

I said "no". Banging your head during sex wouldn’t mean a headache was an STI...actually in some relationships a headache could really be considered a form of contraception!
Thinking about this encounter, I was reminded of stuff the kids would ask.

In the spirit of “there’s no such things as a stupid question” we'd encourage them to ask anything, and to keep it anonymous they'd write it on a scrap of paper so no-one knew who asked the question.

Today in #Poland the parliament will vote on two new laws - one to restrict #abortion, the other to ban #SexEducation.

They know that massive women’s protests vs previous attempts are not possible. #ProtestAtHome for women's right to choose.

#NieSkladamyParasolek #StrajkKobiet
Here’s how you can join #Poland #ProtestAtHome via @AnnaMBlus
➡️Make a banner with a #solidarity message☂️🏳️‍🌈
➡️If you can, change your virtual background (e.g. in Zoom) - you will be outside the Polish Parliament #Sejm).
➡️If you can't, post a selfie with your message.
The banner and hashtag #NieSkladamyParasolek means 'we are not putting our umbrellas down".

The umbrellas were used during the Black Protest a few years ago and there are rainbows because the sex ed ban is targetting #LGBTI communities mainly. ☂️🏳️‍🌈

Il faut que je vous parle de cette scène dans #SexEducation @NetflixFR et que je vous explique pourquoi j’ai pleuré en la regardant, dû faire une pause pour reprendre mes esprits, répété 5 fois "oh putain" et pleuré de nouveau Image
#JeSuisFlorence Comme elle, au lycée, la sexualité ne m'intéressait pas et je vivais mal la pression à la sexualité imposée par mes pairs. J'avais honte, je pensais être seule dans mon cas, être cassée. Image
Il faut dire que dans les séries, films et pubs, le sexe est omniprésent. La vie des gens semblent être guidée par leur désir de sexe, d'accouplement. Je n'avais jamais vu de personnage ne pas être intéressé par le sexe, choisir un autre chemin que celui de la sexualité

The #AdventuresLive festival has started! Thanks @nas009 and @adventurefrom for bringing this beautiful, fun and safe space to life... And for walking the walk when it comes to CONSENT: yellow wristbands if you consent to have your pictures taken, and red ones if you don't. Image
How do you teach your children about sexuality?

@kinnareads reminds us that "parents parent from a place of fear" so the first thing to do is to come to terms with your own fear. Powerful.

How do you teach your children about sexuality?

@OhTimehin shares her fear that our society "hates girls who know things". So how do we teach girls what we want them to know while also equipping them to face people's unease with the fact that they know so much?

#SexEducation

#India
I will write about what parents can do to talk about sex and educate children in appropriate way.

If you are a regular Indian parent like me, you don't ever want to talk to your kids about sex. Even after their marriage.

That's how we grew up and we wish everything remained the same way even in 21st century.

But world has other plans for you.
While you were busy growing up on old Playboy, Penthouse and Debonair and getting cheap thrills from racy third rate novels written by now famous socialites, world changed!

Internet happened
Globalization happened
Economy opened up
Smartphones happened!

Though we all want our kids to be safe, the moment someone mentions Sex Education, we shrink into a ball.

Conventional sex education limits itself to half baked scientific knowledge of anatomy, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
This is still a Victorian model where ultimate aim is to drive people away from notion of sex by making it as uninteresting and scary as possible.

But imparting of real knowledge, information about pleasure, eroticism etc to adolescents brings you in conflict with law.
And the biggest parental fear - if they know about all this, they WILL start using this knowledge.!

Fair enough.

So most kids end up learning about sex from friends and sex videos aka pornography.

There is almost nothing to stop them from their curiosity.

THREAD: I was thrilled to present at #SHAPETampa last week! @ShapeAmerica’s national convention is the largest gathering of #healthed and #physed teachers in the country. I know not everyone could make it, so here is a recap of my presentation.
My session was scheduled at 8 a.m. on the first day of the convention, so I didn’t know if anyone would make it. I wore my #SEXEDU shirt from @AskGoody in tribute to @THEKINGDMC, who was presenting (and doing some Run-DMC classics) with @HHPHorg later that day.
I was coming from the West Coast, so this 8 a.m. session felt like 5 a.m. to me.

Luckily, the room filled up early with lots of energetic folks. Shout out to @MelanieLynch52 for helping me navigate some projector connection trouble!

TW. For abuse, 'discipline' and stories of child abuse. Do mute this thread to avoid.

Thread 2 of my live-tweet reading of To Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl. #exvangelical #ExposeChristianDiscipline
Before I go into Chapter 5, its worth asking the question, do these Christian Extremist parents actually like children? As in, children for who they are, what they bring, the way they see the world, their frustrations and playfulness, their insights and annoying traits.

Cómo sacar partido de los recursos que ofrece Netflix para las clases de Lengua y Literatura en secundaria.

En el hilo os dejo algunas ideas...

@NetflixES #netflix
#Élite aporta esa atmósfera envolvente de misterio que tanto gusta a los adolescentes.
Sobre el plano real del instituto, pueden situar la escena de un crimen, imaginar culpables y elaborar una noticia con las 6 preguntas básicas del periodismo
#SexEducation es fresca y tiene una temática atractiva por razones obvias.
En pequeños grupos, pueden exponer sus dudas sobre sexo, preparar un cuestionario, investigar sobre dichos temas y, a modo de entrevista, recrear un consultorio juvenil como en la serie.
