In a world where sex is simultaneously commodified and shamed, sex education efforts are failing young people while the porn industry is booming. Technological advances have made porn available to us in the palms of our hands & Google a more accessible sex educator than our teachers, parents & peers. But what kind of sex educator is porn? What sexual stories do our Porn Brains tell us (men, women & young people) and how do these stories both positively & negatively impact our real-life experiences of sexual pleasure, communication, connection & intimacy?

Yana Tallon-Hicks is a pleasure-positive sex writer & educator who teaches consent-based sex education & sexual pleasure workshops. Her sex writing is widely published and can be found weekly in her sex column, the V-Spot. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
