John Oliver, Laverne Cox Take On Idiotic Abstinence-Only Sex Ed 


On This Week Tonight, John Oliver lavished a full 21 minutes on American sex ed, with a special emphasis on abstinence-only curriculums. The segment comes complete with clips from dreadful videos with titles like “No Screwin’ Around” and programs comparing girls who’ve had sex to used tape, chewed-up gum, and stinky old shoes.

Faced with the rather alarming state of sex ed, Oliver rounded up a bunch of celebrities—including Laverne Cox and Nick Offerman—to make a video for everybody who’s stuck somewhere where they can’t show you how to put a condom on a banana. Stay safe out there, kids.
