"Recognizing just how universally bad their sex educations had been, a group of students at New York University decided to challenge the lackluster approach to this oh-so-important subject by posing one question: If you could give one piece of advice to a younger sibling about sex, what would it be?"
"It captures the genuine frustration wefeel with what we were (not) taught, our concern for where this leaves those not yet in college and a desire to remind our younger sibs and friends and communities of their right to respect, consent, confidence, and pleasure."
“Students’ responses were so poignant because they recognize that their younger siblings are most likely not getting the conversations about sex that they deserve.”
"Jablons hopes to eradicate the silence that surrounds sex and sexuality by spreading the activist photos around Facebook and other social media outlets."
“Maybe a roomie. Or a teacher. Or a relative. Maybe even a parent. The numbers are terrifying, but it is through open dialogue and expanding our conversations about sex and consent that we have a fighting chance of changing all this.”
"Josy Jablons, sophomore and founder of NYU Students for Sexual Respect, Meghan Racklin, Feminist Society president, Emilio Madrid-Kuser, student photographer, and Melissa Lopez, student graphic designer, have joined forces to spread destigmatized lessons about respect, consent, confidence, and pleasure."
“The “Better Sex Talk” project could eventually be a good way to persuade other policymakers to support that effort, by providing concrete evidence that young people want to change the status quo — particularly as the federal government keeps increasing funding for abstinence-only programs that aren’t based in scientific evidence.”
“By allowing students to explicitly share the information they felt they’ve missed, #BetterSexTalk hopes to broaden sex education in an approachable way. The campaign is quickly going viral — and to date, includes over 100 photos."
