The Big Sex Talk
︎ digital producer

The Big Sex Talk is a six part documentary series for CBC Gem that places its finger firmly on the pulse of the new landscape of sexual and gender diversity. Narrated by certified sex educator, Shan Boodram — with help from experts, culture vultures, and personal stories from everyday people — the explainer series unpacks our notions of sexuality, spells out the new sex lingo, and debunks all the myths surrounding sex.

As a digital producer, Sarah directed, produced, shot and wrote two adjoining web series:

Sexplanation, an educative primer features sexuality experts discussing hot-button topics through an academic and informed lens. Features episodes with Dr. Syrus Marcus Ware, scholar and activist, and Debbie Owusu-Akyeeah, Executive Director Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity.

Let’s Talk About Sex Baby, a cheeky and informational segment with sexuality experts wielding masterful advice on various topics. Features episodes with comedian Tranna Wintour and fashion media personality Jeanne Beker.

The content is distributed across CBC, CBC Gem, and CBC Life’s digital platforms.
