How to have a healthier, positive relationship to sex

From fear of women's bodies to sheepishness around the word "nipple," our ideas about sex need an upgrade, say sex educators (and hilarious women) Tiffany Kagure Mugo and Siphumeze Khundayi. For a radical new take on sex positivity, the duo take the TED stage to suggest we look to Africa for erotic wisdom both ancient and modern, showing us how we can shake off problematic ideas about sex we've internalized and redefine pleasure on our own terms. (This TED talk contains mature content.) Following the video, participants will discuss healthy sexuality, societal perspectives, and how people’s ideas about sexuality are formed.
