Mmabatho Montsho’s “Women on Sex” social media project explores the many issues around female sexuality that are often only discussed privately or are considered taboo.

The YouTube-based web series features celebrities, doctors, pastors and everyday women as they challenge perceptions and norms about sex. (Text: Facebook). In addition to the YouTube platform, “Women on Sex” provides updates and newsfeeds on Facebook and Twitter, which encourage dialogue with followers about the web series content and related issues.

In an interview with Mmabatho Montsho had this to say about her reason for producing the series:

One of our duties as filmmakers is to hold a mirror up to society and as one who navigates the world in a black female body, it’s my duty to create progressive black female-centered content that disturbs the status quo.
