    Pros: 

    Great content, rare to find places this welcoming online :)

    Cons: 

    Still only a few workshops a day

    Exciting to see sex ed being done so accessibly and so well. I'd love to see O.School take this kind of education from a niche to something that everyone sees as part of being healthy.

    Pros: 

    Engaging, informative, fun. Diverse group of educators. Well-moderated chats

    Cons: 

    Needs more content!

    The streams I've seen have been interesting and enjoyable, with very knowledgable presenters and very often good dialog with the others who are watching.

Great launch @abarrica1 @kennystone @colegottwald! As I commented on in @rrhoover's tweet, this is an intriguing product/service. I have a close friend who's studying to be a sex therapist and we discuss how open communication like this can greatly benefit relationships & self-esteem. Having a transparent area like this to explore some of those sex education topics that might not be covered in school health classes appears to be a good opportunity. Of course, as with any topic like this, I think moderators will be key in keeping the service and community on a positive and respectful level. I think, though, given the right amount of moderation (which I'm sure you've discussed and planned for), this could be a great informational tool. Sex-tech seems to me to be one of the emerging areas full of interesting possibilities. Congrats on a cool launch!

@kennystone @colegottwald @rrhoover @adammarx13 Thanks Adam, we definitely have spent a lot of our team thinking about moderation, as it will be key as we grow. Our live streams start at 1pm today if you want to tune in and check it out live!

@kennystone @colegottwald @rrhoover @abarrica1 Awesome, can't wait to see how this grows and evolves! I may miss today's stream, but have made a notation to look into it later this week. Will also share it with a few of my friends who are more knowledgeable about this space than I am; happy to pass any feedback your way. Cheers! :D

Nice work @kennystone @colegottwald @abarrica1! I read an article about how Gen Z are awful at sex because everything they've learned is through porn 😱 there's still so much harmful stigma + shyness around talking about sex I hope we are getting closer to changing that. What were some of the challenges you faced when trying to make this project come to life?
Andrea BarricaMaker@abarrica1 · Founder / CEO O.school
Thanks so much for your support, @abadesi - many people have learned most of what they know about sex from porn (which is like expecting people to learn how to drive well from Fast and the Furious movies) which is a big reason why we started O.school. Our challenges include many of the common challenges live streaming platforms face, as well as unique ones due to the stigma around talking about healthy sexuality online (especially as women and queer people), like having educational ads constantly denied by social platforms or the challenges and work it takes to create harassment-free zones online.
Luna Matatas@lunamatatas · Pleasure Professiona
You're so right @abadesi, porn is a dominant source of where we get our sex skills. I appreciate the conversations on O.school I've been in that reduce shame, stigma and give people different options for having the kind of sex that brings them the most pleasure possible.
Sofia Fortin@sofia_fortin
I love O.School because as a teacher I can access a community of professionals, and connect with more people. I love O.School as a person because there is so much to learn about sex and it's great to have one place to go to access all kinds of topics and information in a shame-free and accessible space.

@sofia_fortin thanks sofia, really appreciate having your voice in our community.
Kelly IrelandMaker@kellyireland · VP Product, O.school
@sofia_fortin teaches about Tantra on O.school all they way from northern Canada! www.thehappyvaginaproject.com @HappyVProject and I've learned so much from her streams.
Hannah Grabowski@hannah_grabowski
As a college-aged person, I'm thankful I've found a space to learn that which was never taught to me in high school! I watch O.school weekly, and most of the times with friends. I've recommended this platform to so many because of the variety of topics and how it can accessed anywhere.
Luna Matatas@lunamatatas · Pleasure Professiona
@hannah_grabowski Thanks for these words Hannah! I love teaching on this platform - I'd never get to connect with and meet people like you who are searching for sex information that's credible, fun, shame-free and accessible.
Andrea BarricaMaker@abarrica1 · Founder / CEO O.school
@hannah_grabowski Thanks Hannah - we can't wait to meet more college students like you. What's been your favorite streams?
Hannah Grabowski@hannah_grabowski
@abarrica1 I love everything tagged dating and culture, and sex after trauma related streams have been helpful for me and my community!

Huge fan of what Andrea + team are doing here. My other half works in public health, and a common frustration in her work revolves around sexual education (or the lack thereof). Really looking forward to seeing how O.school can help change the narrative for the better.
Andrea BarricaMaker@abarrica1 · Founder / CEO O.school
@elshanerino Thanks so much for your support, Shane. The lack of sex education is a big problem right now. Grateful for people like your other half doing the work in public health, and we're excited to change the narrative, especially in online spaces.
