SEX. Did I get your attention? Great, because that is our topic of discussion of the week - more specifically: sex education. I hope you find our conversation not only entertaining but super educational as well (hence, I will be putting out a parental advisory notice for this episode just in case…). Some questions we hope to have answers for are: how do we make the birds and the bees less of a taboo topic within our community? What are some resources and spaces that we can look into to better educate ourselves on sexual health? And further deepening the conversation, why do some of us have intimacy issues (is it because of all the moments our parents told us to look away from TV sex scenes?)?
All I can say is this: expect to be enlightened and expect the uncensored.
Gilcy Aquino is a lover of Internet memes, flat Soda and soggy cereal. In no particular order. She is a native born Filipina who immigrated to the U.S. at an early age and thus, fueling her love for Filipino food and pointing at things using her lips. When she isn't writing she can be found in the last aisle of a bookstore crying over her favorite fictional characters. A recent English major graduate from University of Illinois at Chicago, she hopes to continue her elicit (and sometimes explicit - if you know what I mean) love affair with the written word by perusing a master's degree in editing and publishing.
