Despite it being 2020, the topic of sex education in Malaysia has always been taboo especially among the older generation. Despite this, Time To Talk has taken the bold step of organising a live stream talk which highlights unveiling the taboo of sex education.

Time To Talk is a Ted Talk inspired event that began in 2018 that presses on issues that need to be addressed. In the year 2020 itself, there is an increasing frequency of reports on baby dumping, rape, unplanned pregnancies, sexual harassment, paedophilia etc. The online event will be held on 22nd December and there will be forum sessions discussing various Sex Ed linked topics such as ‘Child Grooming’ as well as the ‘Myths & Misconceptions of Sex Education’. 

Some of their moderators include comedian Harith Iskander, host, Daphne Iking and All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) services Program Officer, Mayna Patel.

Speaking to World of Buzz, The Noeo Project who are in partnership with Time to Talk, said that in addition to forums, there will be an Awareness session which covers the steps to take if you have been sexually assaulted. There will also be performances from local Malaysian artists such as Indie-Pop band, Senja, and Time To Talk’s very own Graphic Designer, Nasuha.

The talk will be officiated by none other than Syed Saddiq who will also be giving a speech on further implementing and supporting the importance of Comprehensive Sex Education.

“The event’s aim is to provide an insight regarding the need of Sex Education in Malaysia and bring to light existing social issues, especially amongst youth.”

Time to Talk will be going live at 6pm and the link will be available from 5pm onwards. To enter the live stream, you can join their YouTube channel here or their Facebook page as well.

Kudos to Time to Talk and all their partners for their efforts in educating the Malaysian youth regarding this topic that has been skirted around for far too long!
