This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. While sex is a natural act, a large part of our meaning and experiences around sex is shaped by our cultural upbringing. Female sexuality, in particular, is layered with negative judgments and shame that control women's bodies and minds. The silence around this sexual shame impacts the sexual climate for everyone. Yet there are simple, every day acts each person can do to make a difference to reduce their shame or that of others, and allow for the beauty of human connection.

Jennifer Gunsaullus, PhD, passionately challenges people to sexually think outside the box. As a sociologist, sexuality speaker, and relationship & intimacy counselor, she creates safe spaces for the taboo topic of sex. Dr. Jenn is a frequent speaker about healthy relationships, body image, erotic play, sexual health, and mindful sexuality, and she presented a TEDxAFC Women Talk entitled Sex: Mind full or Mindful?

Dr. Jenn is a writer for The Good Men Project, a regular “sexpert” on San Diego morning news, and co-authored the eBook, “Am I Normal? A Woman’s Guide to Female Sexuality.” Check out her over 200 free videos on YouTube in her In the Den with Dr. Jenn video series.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
