Ask Me Anything video series

 "Ask Me Anything," is an engaging online video series where knowledge experts tackle candid questions about sexual and reproductive health, gendered violence prevention, mental health, and gender equality in a light-hearted manner, and with a sense of humour. 

Aimed at promoting open and informed discussions, Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE) is thrilled to launch the first episode, “Teens Ask”, which focuses on questions from young people about sexual health. It offers viewers an opportunity to explore evidence-based information and gain a foundational understanding of key sexual health concepts. The episode features Vanessa Hamilton of Talking the Talk Sexuality Education and Sarah Lorrimar, Sexologist and Sexual & Reproductive Health Team Leader at GenWest. 

“Our goal is to create a safe and informative space where people can ask any question without judgment," says Kit McMahon, CEO WHISE.  

"We want to empower individuals with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing." 

Open and honest conversations about sexual health can be difficult to come by. "Ask Me Anything: Teens Ask" provides a platform for young people to pose their most pressing questions to experts in the field. 

Answering young people's questions about sex is a responsibility that many parents dread and often feel awkward in responding to. Having a platform for teenagers to "Ask Me Anything" allows important subjects about body changes and sexual issues to be brought out in the open, in a light-hearted and anonymous way and allows opportunity for discussions that just may not happen in the home environment. 

The launch of "Ask Me Anything" series debuted during Sexual & Reproductive Health Week, an annual social media health promotion campaign organised by the Women’s Health Services Network, which began Monday 25 September. During this week are two significant international health days: World Contraception Day (26 September) and International Safe Abortion Day (28 September).

Viewers can expect each episode of "Ask Me Anything" to delve into a variety of topics, offering valuable insights and expert opinions.  

"Ask Me Anything” is now live and you can follow the series on WHISE’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@whisewomen
