Hi Product Hunt! We're so excited to share our O.school Originals with you. There's a real lack of resources and brands between Planned Parenthood and Pornhub, and we wanted to create the sexual health information that we all should have had. We're sharing these videos, with custom animations and gifs, to the world at https://o.school/media - so please feel free to share with parents, teachers, professors, sex educators, and anyone who wants to learn more about their bodies. We would love to hear your feedback!

@abarrica1 I love the project and they way its written. But where are the GIFs?? You should build a separate library of GIFs so people can easily share.

@federicojorge They are on the article pages and downloadable on the /media page - but you are right. Thank you for the feedback! We are working to get them on Giphy, too, to make them easy to share! We need more gifs and ways of talking about pleasure!

@abarrica1 yes, yes, yes. GIFs are fun and it could be a cheeky way to spread the voice and educate. Good luck with the project!

@abarrica1 can you launch an iOS keyboard with those GIFs?

I love working for a mission-driven company during these times! I would love to hear from you if you think O.school Originals will help move sexual wellness conversations forward for ourselves and the next generation.

@kellyireland I don't think it will, first because it's partly inaccurate (the article about the orgasm gap is a good example of that). Oh, and if the goal is to help teenagers to learn about their body, safe sex and all, I think your overly inclusive language is not going to help. "People with vulvas" is dehumanizing, I don't think many people would feel specifically included.
@kellyireland Me too! The fact that Swann is able to say they disagree with the accuracy of the orgasm gap article is proof that O.School is already moving sexual wellness conversations forward - we wouldn’t have had that beginning of a conversation without it. And I’m confident there will be many more. Regarding the inclusive language, as we’ve learned at Mogul, it’s just the right thing to do and I love that you all combined it with sexual wellness, since the lack of it has left out a lot of people from being able to participate in such fundamental conversations. Great work team!

@kellyireland @soueuls I actually thought that the expression "people with vulvas" was a really simple way to be as inclusive as possible. Bravo. Rather than being dehumanizing, I thought it included all humans with vulvas, however they choose to refer to themselves in any other way.

@kellyireland @david_pham2 I disagree with the premises of it, anyone studying historical human promiscuity will know that males orgasm (ejaculate) quicker, simply because we have evolved from multi-male/multi-female societies, in this context, quick ejaculation is the rational thing to do if you want to be able to impregnate females, reproduce and make your genes propagate. http://theconversation.com/why-d... it's a well known thing, it's corroborated by our testicules's outside position and size too. So while I don't deny the orgasm gap, I just find the explanations inaccurate at best.

@kellyireland @andreasduess Yes, it's typical from your group defending inclusiveness at all cost, you refuse to see that some people (some women in this context) feel completely excluded. I am sure of it because if you have followed the recent Ireland abortion law which used "pregnant people" instead of "pregnant women", some women who invested hundreds of hours into this fight felt completely excluded from the debate because of this exact specific wording. So no, it's not a "simple way to be as inclusive as possible", it's a way to dehumanize the fact that only women are able to reproduce, and it's basically the case for the whole animal kingdom minus a few exceptions something even a 5 years old is able to understand.

Love the idea and how it's realised. Interesting and very high quality content, dives pretty deep into the topics. Sadly sex ed is largely ignored, and I'm glad to see you guys doing something to change that with such a great project.
