YouTube recently banned the Bob the Llama video Be Porn Smart: Sex in Porn vs. Real Life. Fortunately, they reconsidered after seeing these statements from college instructors and therapists:
”As a Human Sexuality educator at a community college, I find these videos to be a godsend for my students. I enjoy introducing the videos at the beginning of a new textbook chapter and the students look forward to watching them. They frequently comment how creative and educational they are and share them with their friends. Keep developing these videos from Bob the Llama!” —Janet Minehan, Ph.D., Santa Barbara Community College
“One of the best series of sex-ed videos out there. A talking llama teaching us about sex? Get outta here…” —David Ley PhD., author The Myth of Sex Addiction
“I have taught HLTH 2050 Sexual Health to over 500 students each year at East Carolina University for over 15 years. I use Dr. Joannides’ book, the Guide to Getting It On, as my textbook, and his videos have become a mainstay of my course. I use all of them. I either assign them as homework or show them in class. There is nothing like them on the web today. He has managed to do the impossible… produce research-based sex-ed videos that are also highly entertaining to college students. I am especially concerned that the video Sex in Porn vs. Real Life is no longer available on YouTube. The content in that video is so important to young adults today.” —Karen Vail-Smith, East Carolina University
“Bob the Llama is brilliant! Keep the helpful information coming!” —Michele Sugg, MSW, past president, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists
“The Guide to Getting it On has long been my favorite sex-ed book, so when I heard Dr. Joannides had a YouTube Channel, I knew it would be fantastic, and indeed it is! I plan to show many of these videos in my Psychology of Human Sexuality class at the University of Florida. I am especially glad for the video Sex in Porn vs. Real Life, as this is a critically important topic for my class and they way it is conveyed is outstanding.” —Laurie Mintz, Ph.D., Univ. of Florida, author Becoming Cliterate
Thank you so very much to Janet Minehan, David Ley, Karen Vail-Smith, Michele Sugg and Laurie Mintz!
