Hello sex fans! Welcome back.
I have some more fantastic SEX WISDOM for you today. This is, of course, the series where I chat with researchers, educators, clinicians, pundits and philosophers who are helping us take a fresh look at our sexual selves. And this week I have a very special show in store for you.
What if I told you that there is an entire population of people in this country and abroad who are woefully underserved with regard to access to clear and unambiguous information about human sexuality? You’d be outraged, huh? But would you even know what demographic I’m talking about?
Well, in case ya don’t, my guest today is here to help wake you up, so to speak, about this very pressing need. I am proud to welcome a fellow Seattlite and a new friend, the exceptional Jo Langford.
He is a top-notch therapist, educator and author and his primary outreach is to teens and young adults. He is the first of my guests in this series who works primarily with kids and the information he is about to share is both revealing and startling. Listen; if you are a teenager or know someone who is, then you’ll not want to miss this show, sex fans.
Jo and I discuss:
- His style of presenting to teens and their parents;
- “The Talk”;
- His background in forensic sexology;
- Sexually precocious kids;
- The sexual double standard for girls and boys;
- The dearth of sex resources for young people;
- Why parents avoid their role as primary sex educator;
- His soon to be published book;
- Kids getting their sex ed from porn;
- What kind of information do kids really need;
- Abstinence only programs;
- No one’s addressing the sexual needs and concerns of gay and lesbian kids;
- What young people think constitutes “sex”.
