MADE IN OAKLAND BY OAKLAND YOUTH
do any of y’all recognize the schools?
"20 Condoms" is the first video in Sex Ed: the Saga, a video series created by Asian youth in Oakland to get young people, caregivers, teachers, and mentors to start conversations on topics like healthy decision-making, sexual orientation, gender identity, and acceptance. The Sex Ed: the Saga video series is created by and for youth and is a way for young people to lead conversations that adults tend to have about us, without us.

by and for oakland youth who are getting real about the shitty sex ed in our schools.
Did you ever have to watch a gym teacher put a condom on a banana? Do you wish young people have a better way to get the information they need to make smart decisions about sex? Well here is something YOU can do about it!
We are Asian youth from Oakland, CA and we are making a series of fun, creative and sexy videos to get young people talking about sex. We need YOU to help reach our goal of $5,000 to finish making these videos, which educate, inform and start conversations about:
- Using protectiion
- Preventing STIs (sexually transmitted infections)
- Partner communication
- Gender identity and sexual orientation
- LGBTQ-inclusive sex ed
- Self acceptance
- Family communication
We know it’s hard for young people to get accurate information about sex. And we usually don’t get to decide what kind of sex ed gets taught to us. So we’re taking matters into our own hands and making our voices heard. Sex Ed: the Saga is BY YOUTH, FOR YOUTH, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before! We use music, dancing, animation, and funny pop culture references to start conversations on topics that no one else is talking about.
Making these videos and getting them out into the world takes a lot: green screen time, props, animation of sex ed balls (you gotta see it!), awesome locations and distrubution costs. We can’t do it without you!
