New Series: Sexual Health News With a Wink
Get your sexual health news in minutes with The Quickie, the short-form news program you never knew you needed. In less (hopefully, not more) time than your average sexual encounter, you'll find out what's trending on TikTok; what researchers have found in the areas of sex, fertility and genital function; and which celebrities might be putting hot sauce in their condoms or espousing other health nonsense.
The weekly rapid-fire program wants to break down stigmas, educate viewers and point people to accurate sources of information, all with an eye toward entertainment. It's like Tom Brokaw with penis jokes.
Discussions around sex and sexual health continue to be stigmatized, and far too many people trust unverified, untested, pulled-out-of-thin-air information. Social media, for example, is great for many things—we can't think of any right now—but it's generally a terrible place for health advice. No, you shouldn't put ice in your vagina. No, taking Mucinex isn't going to make you more fertile. No, drinking lemon juice doesn't delay your period. No, tanning your testicles will not noticeably increase your testosterone levels. The makers of The Quickie want to make sure everyone knows these facts.
With humor, wit and many more references to genitalia than your average local newscast, Quickie host Carlos O'Leary debunks myths, shares the truth, comments on pop culture and delivers the occasional spit take.
