Since the Puritans first landed at Plymouth Rock, shame around sex has been as American as apple pie. But from Stonewall and sexual liberation to marriage equality and #MeToo, more and more Americans refuse to suffer in silence.
To make sense of this shifting cultural landscape, reporter Alex Liu seeks out the intrepid sex educators breaking the cycle of shame passed down from one generation to the next. These pioneers not only ensure we all understand facts from fiction, they also directly challenge the notion that comprehensive sex education somehow undermines “family values”.
Join Alex as he discovers how accurate information and honest conversations about sex only make families—and thus, societies—more connected, more authentic, and more resilient.
