Remember when you were in Form 3 Science class, when the teacher thought it was a good idea to show the poorly-animated Ovulation video where thousands tiny sperms raced Â to the ‘finish line’– the ovum, then BAM! A baby magically appeared?
That was the farthest the Malaysian education system could go to introduce the young ‘uns to the birds and the bees.
Well, thank God for advanced electronic media, kids (or really curious adults) can now get their dose of sex education with a locally-made YouTube series called Popek Popek.
Popek Popek was the brainchild of PopTeeVee, which was the dream team behind massive viral video successes That Effing Show and English Jer.
Hosted by sex educator June Low and performance artist Sudarshan, Popek Popek is a Bahasa Malaysia programme that is as forthright with its answers (to any question, no matter how awkward or trivial) as it is funny in its delivery.
Popek Popek will air every two weeks for a total of 12 episodes.
In the meantime, let’s enjoy the very first video entitled ‘Apa Itu Dara?’ (What Is Virginity?), in case you’re still clueless.MYNEWSHUB
