About the Campaign
Understanding yourself and your body is a way to empower yourself. As society grows and expands its perspectives, it is important that we foster positivity when it comes to conversations around sexual and reproductive health.
Girls on top is a campaign by The Scoop Asia where we aim to talk about sex positivity and wellness through real stories from real women.
Let’s talk about sex

“I firmly believe that parents should be educating us, children, about sexual health. If not them, this should be a program in school. It’s just as important as physical health. They can’t stop us from exploring anyway, so why not help us be safe. We don’t talk about this enough”

“When i first got my period, i was in denial that i walked around letting it drip until my parents saw me 😬”
“…Please don’t shame me, but during that moment I just thought. *Fine, whatever. I’ll just do it for the sake of experience.* and get on with it already.
