Beforeplay Got Some Play…



Beforeplay.org is one of the projects that I can’t help but cherish. Eckhh…cherish is kind of a weird word, isn’t it? Right up there with mollycoddle. And tender. And moist. Man, I’m realizing I have some real issues with soft, comforting words. Maybe I need to unpack that with a mental health professional at some point…

Regardless though, if I could have written for Beforeplay.org for a decade, I would have. I was lucky enough to be hired by Vermilion to write this sex- and sexuality-positive website and advertising campaign when it first launched in 2012, and it’s still making an impact more than seven years later. Just yesterday, Rachel Maddow gave mad props to our work when speaking to John Hickenlooper about Beforeplay and his campaign to provide affordable long-acting reversible contraception (IUDs and implants) to Colorado women. The program has reduced unintended teen pregnancies by 54% and teen abortions by 64% across the state. #BOOM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the full video clip below, and in the meantime, I’ll humble-pride in the fact that I had even a small part in making sure all women have access to reliable reproductive healthcare. The future be female, folks. Let’s rock.
