Sex, Etc. Website + Contest!
About a month ago we got a very nice email from the people at Sex, Etc. asking us to post about a contest they’re currently holding…and I think we totally forgot!
In the hopes that this makes up for our absent-mindedness:
Sex, Etc. is an award-winning American magazine and website on sexual health that is written by teens, for teens. It is part of the Teen-to-Teen Sexuality Education Project developed by Answer (formerly the Network for Family Life Education), a leading national organization dedicated to providing and promoting comprehensive sexuality education. Answer is part of the Center for Applied Psychology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
Theyre currently running a competition called I’M TABOO, which gives teens ages 13-19 the opportunity to publish their own videos and stories about the importance of comprehensive sexuality education (and win prizes) The campaign that springs from the idea that by denying teens comprehensive, honest sex ed we leave many who have questions feeling “taboo.” The campaign calls on teens to “make the unspeakable, speakable” and gives them a platform for self-advocacy, so they can spread the word about their need for and right to comprehensive sex education. The campaign runs through May 20, 2007.
