The goal of The New Talk is to start a conversation about sex education.
Sex education in the United States today needs vast improvement. If we all put our heads together, maybe we can come up with some ways to improve sex ed.
I’m a graphic design student at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. I studied sex education handout materials for my senior thesis project. Since my expertise is in design, I will be focusing first on redesigning existing sex education materials that are given out in schools. I would love to widen the scope of the project to include different aspects of sex education, so if you have expertise in other fields and would be interested in being involved, please get in touch with me here.
Use our materials! We’ve designed these as an alternative to the current ennui-inducing classroom pieces. The designs below can be used in classrooms, at home, in groups–anywhere!–to learn about sex and sexuality in a more fun, age appropriate way.
To use one of these materials, please click on it and a zip file will download to your computer.
Each zip file contains a two-sided PDF of the artwork, ready to print, and folding instructions where necessary.

This project is all about starting a community conversation.
We’d love to hear from you and add your skills & expertise
to The New Talk. At this time we’re primarily looking for
designers but are open to talking with anyone and everyone!
