Sex Ed Videos for Parents – AMAZE Parent Playlist

Posted On: June 21, 2021

Resharing this AMAZE Parent Playlist is specifically designed to help parents engage young children (age 4-9) in open, honest conversations about bodies and growing up in a fun, engaging, and age-appropriate way.

1) What Should You Do If You Had Unprotected Sex

“I like how this video gives information to cover a wide range of unexpected or unwanted consequences of unprotected sex. I also like that it discusses reasons why unprotected sex might occur in a nonjudgemental way. For students who understand metaphor, the moving car is a great way to show how fast and uncontrolled things can feel when dealing with possible consequences of unprotected sex, and how one can reestablish control and steer the situation in a way that might minimize these consequences.”

 

2) What Makes a Healthy Relationship

“Not only is this video clear about the qualities of a healthy and unhealthy relationship, but it gives concrete examples of those qualities in action. Like all amazo.org videos, this one includes same-gender as well as different-gender couples, providing a powerful message about equality and inclusion without ever having to state it directly. Finally, I love that the heart guides the discussion in this video. It’s an important reminder for young people (and older people) that relationships, unlike hook ups, involve a heart component.”

 

3) Saying Yes or No: What is Consent

“This video provides a wealth of information about consent, and models how to have a casual conversation about a very important topic. I love how Eve, the big sister, also makes sure Pip knows that talking to parents and teachers is always an option as well.”

4) Why Don’t I Like the Way I Look?

“Body image is one of the most fraught topics explore with in my classes. This video is so clear in affirming all body types and gender identities, and helps young people understand the forces that collude to make them feel insecure about their bodies. It’s joyful, funny, and so loving in its approach to the topic!”

About Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than 12 years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore. She is also a Red Tent Women’s Circles Facilitator from Star of Ishtar.

Often cited in the media, Dr. Lee is the appointed Resident Sexologist for PinkLifestyle.com; as well appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She has published four books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic YogaFrom Princess to Queen and {Un}Inhibited.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
