“Tell Me a Story”
It’s a timeless request. Vivian Peters believes in the power of storytelling. She envisions a world in which every baby conceived is wanted and loved at least as much as she was. That’s why she wrote OOPS! Tales from a Sexpert: to share her stories and insights from fifteen years serving as an Outreach Educator for her local Planned Parenthood in a rural area of New York State.
Two unique programs enabled her to build ongoing relationships with people in their homes and schools, providing sexual health education—and so much more—to individual teens and adults in rural poverty, where teen pregnancy and large families are the norm. She got to listen to them speak in their own voices, and she listened for what we don’t say about sex.
