ABout us

Sex Talks Podcast is a multi-award-winning podcast that aims to equip young people with factual information about Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), mental health, and gender-based violence. In this podcast, we inform, educate, and empower you by sharing stories from other young people who have faced similar experiences, as well as insights from experts in the field.

We openly discuss sensitive topics that are often considered taboo or uncomfortable for parents to address. Our youthful and non-judgmental approach creates a safe space for honest conversations about sexual health, mental well-being, and gender-based violence.

Our podcast aligns with the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being: We promote comprehensive information on SRHR, mental health, and gender-based violence to improve young people’s overall well-being.
  • SDG 4: Quality Education: Our platform serves as a valuable resource for comprehensive sexuality education,equipping young people with knowledge to make informed decisions.
  • SDG 5: Gender Equality: We challenge harmful gender norms and stereotypes, empowering young people of all genders and identities to exercise autonomy over their bodies and sexuality.
  • SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities: We strive to reduce disparities in access to SRHR, mental health, and gender-based violence information by providing it in an accessible and inclusive way.

Join our community of young people every second Wednesday of the month to learn from relatable stories and expert insights. Happy listening, and don’t forget to engage with us on social media!

Your health and well-being are our priority!
