Meet Woori, the group of young pioneers who want to change South Korea's sex education, and aren't afraid to come out and say loud and clear: SEX. MASTURBATION. CONDOMS.

"Woori’s videos are entertaining but informative, using props including pink balloon clitorises, popcorn-ejaculating bananas, dragonfruit vaginas and menstruating ketchup bottles to provide myth-busting guides to female masturbation and other issues that previously lurked in the shadows unexplored by social discourse. They also use sit-down interviews with young Koreans to sound out opinions on key issues like sex on first dates, sexual fantasies and how to react if your partner watches porn."

KÉ: You seem to have started by filming interviews with people on less full-on subjects, like dating and love, then moved on to issues like porn watching and masturbation. Was that a deliberately gradual approach?

YH: We wanted to start with something mild in case it put off our viewers, but when we tried talking about sex itself, we found that wasn’t the case at all. Now we just talk about everything.

Maet-dol (MD): In South Korea, if you talk about sex, people [often] think it’s lewd. So they’re reluctant to talk about it even if they like it.
