Sex. It's kind of a big deal, right? But how are teens learning about it? In this tear-jerkingly hilarious TEDxSaltLakeCity talk, 17-year-old Thea Holcomb shows us a whole new way sex ed is spreading among teens.
Thea is a citizen of the outdoors, the Internet, and the broader nerd community. She tries to question expectations, be well-read, and to have un-ironic enthusiasm about what she loves. She is in awe of how complexly and intricately humans can communicate, and therefore she frequently exercises her own ability to do so. The phrase “Sharing is caring,” with few notable exceptions, seems objectively true, so she tries to share what she knows with other people on subjects that include skiing, outdoor living, and sex-ed. Each in a very different setting, but all to young people.
