This week we witnessed the loss of reproductive rights for millions of people in the US with the overturning of Roe v. Wade. We still maintain our rights to speak out and our right to education which is why we are elated to be joined by inclusive youth sex educator Mariah (@SexEdFiles) to discuss good sex education and how to teach consent, body autonomy, media literacy, and sexual health to children/teens of various ages. We hear about Mariah's experience as a teacher, the most common questions she gets from her anonymous question boxes, the harm that abstinence only education and purity culture can do to health, and why sex ed should start at home with parents. Finally, we bust the hymen myth and Mariah gives her advice on what do to if you haven't had an O yet.
