Share Your Sexual Self Story Before It's Too Late

Illustration for article titled Share Your Sexual Self Story Before Its Too Late

Just a reminder: You only have three more days left to share the story of your sexual self to Do Tell, a Tumblr which has been taking submissions from people discussing their sexuality throughout the month. Do Tell is a extension of the documentary film Subjectified: Nine Young Women Talk about Sex (which you can watch online for $2.99 here.)

Do Tell is looking for a variety of aspects of your "sexual self," including your sexual past, "beliefs, experiences, confusions, turning points." They are still taking submissions now:

Please share a story about your sexual self, up to 350 words. Why? Because we live in a sex-saturated culture with precious little honest and authentic discussion of sexuality. Because speaking our truths, with all their complications and imperfections and beauty, challenges a culture of shame that impacts us every day. Because our voices and our histories matter.


Want to participate but feeling stuck on how to start? The Do Tell Tumblr even offers up a list of questions to get you inspired, including "If you have sex, what do you get out of it? Is there something else you want from it?"

Overwhelmed with a rush of Puritanical shyness brought on by nonstop reminders of our dour Pilgrim ancestors? Then settle for reading some of the stories shared thus far. Pretty wonderful stuff this project has wrought.

Hiyo! This is Melissa, the person who made Subjectified and Do Tell. I *definitely* want you, fair Jezebel readers, to be able to watch the movie. Reach out to us via our website if you're having any trouble. Maybe it goes without saying, but your few bucks (or pounds) means a LOT to us here, enables us to keep going with this work, so please know that you are supporting the project by purchasing it to watch online. We don't have any geo-blocking (yay global connectivity!), so there's no reason why you should be unable to watch it anywhere.

Pro tip: the video is hosted on two different sites, so if the video embed on the front page (that's the preferred one) is not working for you, you can try through the one on the "Watch" menu link.
