Jessica Biel Is Launching An Online, Sex-Ed Video Series for Women

By Jason Marshall

 

Mother and actress Jessica Biel is ready to add another job to her resume...Sex Education Teacher!

The "Home of the Brave" star announced Tuesday that she's partnered up with Saundra Pelletier, the founder of WomanCare Global, in an effort to educate women about their bodies and sex.

Glamour Magazine profiled both women in an effort to spread awareness of their new venture, which promises to make no topic off limits. 

 

"I was in a school play, wearing a gray beard and this pad the size of a skateboard and thinking, What is happening to me?" she explains in relation to getting her first period in fifth grade. "We want girls to know what their [body is going through] so they don't feel scared or ashamed or gross."

And the whole idea was born more than two years ago when Biel and her husband Justin Timberlake decided they were ready to have a baby.

“Now what happens?” she wondered after going off birth control. “I’ve been on the Pill for so long; how hard will it be to get pregnant?”

Curious about those and other basic facts, Biel realized how little she knew about sex. “Suddenly I realized I really didn’t know what’s going on inside my own body,” says the 33-year-old actress. “It was shocking.”

The video series will be available for viewing at http://www.womancareglobal.org/, but you can watch the kickoff clip below:

 

 

This really is just the begining for the program though, as it's clear things need to change in how women are taught about their biology. 

Pelletier plans on dissemenating the information in various ways, adding that “there is power and dignity in understanding your body."
