The Gift of Sexuality

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

What is sexuality? Most people will immediately assume we are talking about engaging in a sexual act, however, sexuality is not just about sex. From birth until death, every person is a sexual being. Sexuality defines our gender and can be a complex aspect of our personality. It is how we feel about ourselves. Sexuality is not so much about what you do, but who you are. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Katie Choo interview Dr. Karen Rayne about her book, GIRL: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being You, a growing-up guide for the 21st century by Karen Rayne, PhD—a nationally recognized educator, trainer, author, and expert in sexuality education. Welcoming and inclusive of all self-identified girls, GIRL is uncensored, unbiased, and jam-packed with what today’s teenage girls want and need to know about healthy sexuality, loving relationships, and gender fluidity, as well as thornier subjects such as STI’s, consent, and sexual assault. The hosts also read The Gift of Sexuality by Cynthia Brian and Heather Brittany from the book Be the Star You Are!® for Teens and Katie gives insights about careers involving the study of sexuality.

Karen Rayne Book, Girl.jpgKaren’s bio:

Karen Rayne, PhD, is an educator, trainer, and nationally recognized expert on sexuality. Karen lives in Austin, TX, where she runs a sexuality-education nonprofit called Unhushed, working with people of all ages to make information and conversations about sexuality accessible. Her goal is to ensure everyone has someone to talk with about sexuality and a place to find honest, accurate information. Because she can’t talk with everyone, she writes books like this one. http://karenrayne.com/
