The Midwest Teen Sex Show

Okay, so this is really, truly funny. I’m very impressed with the writing, the truthfulness, and the humor. of the ones I’ve watched so far, my favorite is #5 The First Time. It’s honest, it’s funny, it’s effective. I’d highly recommend it to teenagers. However, there are others that I’m not so fond of–like the most recent one, #10 Dating. This episode is all tongue-in-check, but for someone who doesn’t recognize that, it has some potentially hurtful images and suggestions.

But regardless of whether you recommend the show to your teenagers or not, you should watch them yourself. They give an opening into how teenagers talk about and joke about sex that has the potential to be eye-opening and enlightening.

They post new episodes twice a month.

  1. I watched #5 and liked it, except for the part comparing losing one’s virginity to giving birth.
