Jessica Biel Launching Sex Ed Web Series
Actress Jessica Biel is launching an online series to help women better understand their bodies and sexual health.
The new mum, who is married to Justin Timberlake, was inspired to team up with WomanCare Global founder and activist Saundra Pelletier when she began to realise how many questions she had while trying to conceive five-month-old son Silas, who was born earlier this year.
Biel told Glamour magazine that she had been on birth control pills for a long time and always wondered how hard it would be to fall pregnant.
"Suddenly I realised I really didn't know what's going on inside my own body, it was shocking," Biel told Glamour.com.
Biel and Pelletier's relationship formed after the actress met her and confessed her ignorance on the topics.
The two are now launching the sex education web series, which will focus on subjects including puberty, contraception and menstrual cycles.
"We want girls to know what their (body is going through) so they don't feel scared or ashamed or gross."
"We share girl stories, fears, and insecurities. The tone is informative but also goofy, smart, witty," Biel said.
