In our country, breaking the silence, stigma, taboo and shame surrounding sexual health continues to be a challenge. Does awareness of subliminal or implicit messages from external stimuli including the social media impact the choices we make? Does our ability to understand self in the context of systems and its messaging, create spaces and enable empowered and informed choices?

Listen to Shalaka Sisodia, who runs holistic sexual health awareness programs with youth from varied socio-economic strata, address these sensitive subjects in TEDxVITPune.
