The Sexual Freedom Video Scholarship Winners are….

We held a contest to promote the Woodhull Alliance’s Sexual Freedom Summit last month, and announced the winners on 4th of July. Why? So we could celebrate, not just America’s Independence Day, but sexual freedom as a basic human right for all!

It was really hard to choose 2 winners from the amazing, diverse, and vulnerably beautiful videos that were submitted. Thank you, each of you amazing Sex Geeks out there, for jumping in front of your cameras and sharing why sexual freedom is important to you and to the world. Your words touched my heart and further inspired my mission! And I can’t think you enough for helping promote awareness of Woodhull Alliance’s amazing mission and work!

That said…

“To me, sexual freedom is about education…. From the time we are teenagers, we are walking around with these nuclear power plants in our pants, and taught to ignore them…. Nothing grows in silence…. Innocence and ignorance do not have to walk together hand in hand…. Conversations need to be had…. Sexual freedom is about having and using your own voice.”
