MTVOther, an offshoot of MTV that posts “Short Shows, Random Weirdness” launched a new series called “Braless” yesterday. The show is written and hosted by Laci Green and focuses on feminism and politics in three minute installments. MTV made a smart move in recruiting Green. She has her own YouTube channel”Sex Plus“ where she dispenses sex and relationship advice to her 1,136,994 followers. Her sex ed channel is a reminder to all of us old folks (or is it just me?) how lucky teenagers are in the digital age. With videos on “Shaving Pubes” (1,771,784 views) or “Hymen 101” (2,280,447 views) and partnerships with Discovery News, she’s an integral personality in changing the ways teens (and especially girls) talk about bodies, relationships, and equality. So what if MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore? YouTube stars are a little more interesting than rock stars, anyway.
Here’s the first Taylor Swift-themed episode of “Braless.” New episodes post on Tuesdays.
