The Big O

16.02.21

The elusive female orgasm… shrouded in mystery. ⁠

For the longest time, no one knew if it really was a thing, simply because it had no effect on reproduction. But our conservative Asian society is slowly growing more open to talking about sex and exploring pleasure.

Something Private are joined by experts to explore this much-eluded topic: learning about female anatomy, better understanding our society’s perception of sex, and peek at common intimacy struggles couples and singles face.⁠

To Love Two Men At Once

28.01.21

Jojo has been in a relationship with Amos* for seven years, but she’s also been together with Kevin* for four. While her polyamorous lifestyle is not unheard of, it’s often thought of as sexually promiscuous, or lacking respect for the sanctity of monogamous love. Because how can we love more than one person at a time?

But in reality, Jojo shares that this modern take on love has taught her emotional maturity, good communication, and the capacity to love like never before. This season, we want to feature unique stories about love. We’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with Jojo’s story on how polyamory changed her life for the better.

About ThisConnect.Today

Website | Facebook | Instagram

This Connect is a platform to raise awareness and spark more conscious and forwarding dialogues on mental health and emotional wellness through art. We recognize the need to begin the mental health conversation by examining the personal struggles that weigh us down in life.

These everyday stressors can seem insignificant on its own, but over a long period of time, it can make us feel trapped, lost, stressed and depressed. Through the dialogues, we want to inspire more people to connect with the emotional side of themselves, and to come to terms with the good and the bad within them.

We want people to have the freedom to express their true selves, and to create a life where they are thriving physically, emotionally and mentally. We hope that our work will empower more people to seek help whenever they face challenges in life.
