Okay, Canada — you're turning 150. You're definitely old enough for the talk

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we asked Canadian sexologist Shan Boodram to offer us some real talk about sex in 2017.

So, what would this shameless millennial YouTuber put on a sex-ed syllabus for Canadians growing up today? And what would it take for our country to become a world leader in frank and future-focused sex education? 

Watch the video above for Boodram's breakdown of the three Ps (pornography, pleasure and proficiency) and answer her discussion question on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.
