I came up with the idea for 4th Base in 2015. I had found that the information young adults were getting about sex and sexuality was;
1. Heavily biased toward portraying heterosexuality as the standard norm.
2. The information given about the subject (if at all) was insufficient, often came too late and was outdated
Through my research about sexual education and I recognized that if you want young people to listen or learn to what you have to say, you should talk with them, not only to them.
I created 4th Base for my thirteen year old little sister. I wanted to create a platform s could look to for advice when I can’t be there to give it to her in person. I wanted her and her peers to learn from me and people like me, because we’ve been in their shoes and we know how overwhelming and confusing this sex stuff can be in the beginning.
