Following is really a transcript regarding the video.
Jayda Shuavarnnasri “There isn’t any birth prevention for those who have penises.”
Srinivasan You are telling me we can’t get birth prevention for those who have penises?
I am Jayda Shuavarnnasri. I prefer she/they pronouns. I’m a sexuality and relationships educator. Hi, I am Varuna. I take advantage of she/they pronouns, I am a physician by training, a health that is public, and I also have always been thinking about the intersections between psychological state and sex in South Asian cultures.
Shuavarnnasri And today we have been busting fables around sex and sex. These are urban myths from pop tradition.
Srinivasan “A ‘broken’ hymen means one has had sex before.” No! definitely not. Yes, some ladies do have hymen plus some women don’t, but I don’t genuinely believe that we now have scientifically proven that a hymen that is broken the test of virginity. Additionally, exactly why is it that only people with vaginas and hymens have actually this test? Think about people who have penises? We additionally would you like to call out rapper TI. Men like him go directly to the gynecologist and say, “I need you to examine my daughter’s hymen when per year to ensure it really is intact.”
Shuavarnnasri that is something which gets me really aggravated. That one undoubtedly plays a role in physical physical violence against folks with vaginas. It is less frequent for folks to possess an intact hymen. And, you understand, people that do have a completely intact hymen, that’s not helpful it comes to, you know, if they’re going to start their period, the bl d doesn’t have anywhere to flow for themselves either when. So there are surgeries that men and women would have to undergo to ensure that the hymen to really never be intact. Nevertheless the method we see it that like, you understand, you have got this vaginal canal, right? Let’s imagine this can be just like the entire of this vagina. And also this could be just like a hymen that is slightly intact. This is really what it would l k like, where it’s still an opening, right in most cases? But this might be like free skin.
Srinivasan if you ask me, seriously, it feels as though a organ that is vestigial. It’s the appendix of this vagina, i love to phone it. [Shuavarnnasri laughs] You don’t actually need it, but it is there.
Shuavarnnasri “Abstaining from intercourse allows you to better at activities.” I am assuming that, once again, sex-negative culture, we do not want visitors to have sexual intercourse, and thus it really is like, “Well, because you want to reserve all your energy if you really want to be g d at basketball, you’d better not have sex at all. Show that from the court.” But there’s no, as far you better at sports as I know, any study that shows abstaining from sex is going to make.
Srinivasan Yeah, I have not l k over any study either. But actually, fun reality, when you l k at the Rio Olympics in 2016, a lot more than 450,000 condoms were distributed.
Shuavarnnasri From The that.
Srinivasan So athletes are having a complete large amount of intercourse. But i do believe if you should be accountable and you are clearly sex responsibly in a consensual manner, i believe you will want to? Have some fun. Enjoy sex and then go play your game. “Your wallet is just a great spot for a condom.” [laughs]
Winston Hey, you got a condom on you? I’m sure you have a condom in your wallet.
Srinivasan i do believe that people’ve seen this, right? Where they’re like, “Oh, i’ve a condom within my wallet from fifteen years ago.” Honey, avoid using that. [laughs] More importantly, condoms expire in, like, 5 years. So l k at the date that is expiry. Never store it close to a razor-sharp item, never store it in a very humid spot, rather than store in a very, i do believe it is a tight destination. Yeah, your wallet. Of course you’re heading out for the b ty call, you know, you will get that call and you finally, it is your moment to just shine grab a couple of condoms, place them in your pocket.
Shuavarnnasri “Sex burns a complete lot of calories.” You understand, with respect to the sorts of sex you are having, it could certainly burn fat. I do not think oahu is the same in principle as, you realize, running a marathon, in the slightest. It is not as extortionate of quantity, just how perhaps people think of having, like, the full 30-minute workout, since your heartrate just isn’t elevated to this degree the whole time.
Srinivasan Yeah, totally agree with you, Jayda. I believe that there was a present Time article that came out having said that you don’t burn up more than 100 calories in a single session of intercourse. However for the most part, usually do not believe that it’s your exercise. It’s a work out, it gets your heart rate pumping, but we might undoubtedly suggest still visiting the gym and keeping an lifestyle that is active. They are myths we hear probably the most.
Shuavarnnasri “There are merely two sexes found in nature.” That’s not real. I do believe a large amount of times of flowers, plants that truly have actually both sexes, quote, unquote, “sexes,” inside the flower by itself. We now have labeled them as “male” and “female.” We must keep in mind that which is a category that has been designed by humans.
Srinivasan And we additionally believe it is among those dangerous fables that is out there, especially for intersex persons, because doctors whom work in this concept that there is just two sexes try this irreversible corrective surgery to decide if an intersex person is quote, unquote, “male” or quote, unquote, “female” for the rest of the life. And therefore can in fact trigger a large amount of mental problems. If someone comes into the world intersex, chances are they must be because of the option to determine the way they desire to live their life. Just what their sex is, exactly what intercourse they identify because, what sex they identify because. We undoubtedly need certainly to alter this ideology that is whole.
Shuavarnnasri A great deal of individuals who still think that you will find only two sexes in society goes towards technology as his or her claim, appropriate? And technology because their back-up. And this could be the part where we need to understand that science can also be problematic sometimes. Yeah, this 1’s a difficult one, ’cause it is like, it isn’t just changing the tradition, it really is literally changing the entire system that taught us this culture.
Srinivasan “You can get an STI from a lavatory chair.” [laughs] Medically and technically and scientifically speaking, the germs that does cause syphilis as well as other STIs is only able to reside in those warm mucous membranes within the human body. Assume we t k that bacteria so we, you realize, use it a lavatory chair. It mightn’t live there for over a few hours. It can perish down. So it is impossible for someone to get and sit on it then get that illness. So you cannot have a baby from sitting on a toilet seat, either. The phrase “STI,” sexually transmitted disease, and thus it’s sexually sent between bodies.
