1 Language

"We need to re-frame how we talk to young people about sex. We need to talk about sexual pleasure as the basis of their sex education."

Stephanie Healey made the decision to become a sex educator in order to have real, sex-positive conversations with young people about their bodies and how to navigate the complexities of sex and relationships in the internet era.

During her twenties, she spent time reflecting on the terrible sex education that she and her friends had received. She realised that young people today face cruel double standards. They spend hours of their lives immersed unsupervised in a hyper-sexualised digital world with no real guidance from adults and institutions around them.

Her TEDx talk explores where sex education is failing and how important it is to talk to young people about sex as a pleasurable and connecting act.

Stephanie Healey is a psychotherapist and sex educator based in Bristol. She has spent over a decade working with teenagers and adults, helping them understand how to have healthy relationships and how to have good sex.

Stephanie spends hours at her therapy practice talking about relationships and intimacy. She says she is unshockable when it comes to sex stories! “I have seriously heard it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly. At my core, I believe everyone is deserving of respectful sex and relationships – including you.”
