Hello Cool World at the Sexhibition!

By Michelle Reid On April 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

Bella and Michelle from Hello Cool WorldBella and I couldn't be more excited about attending the Sexhibition that Opt is hosting tomorrow at the Radisson Hotel, in Richmond. The Sexhibition is a part of its 50th Anniversary celebrations, which include the Opt Gala on Saturday.

The Sexhibition, according to Opt's website, "is a 'sexploration' of organizations and small businesses whom we consider to play an integral role in healthy sexuality and sexual health in British Columbia." At Hello Cool World we feel like that describes many of our projects- that's why we created That's So Sexy, to showcase all our sex-positive campaigns!

Sexually active teens rally in support of Planned Parenthood

By Michelle Reid On March 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

If you follow any news about sexual health you've probably heard the uproar over the proposed cuts to Planned Parenthood funding in the US. Planned Parenthood, which operates 800 clinics across the United States and provides millions of women with basic reproductive and sexual health services every year, such as Pap tests, breast exams, low-cost contraception, and abortion. For women living in poverty and in rural areas, it may be the only option for accessing necessary health care services.

Wesleyan Uncut responded to the intention of the House of Representatives to cut all federal funding to Planned Parenthood with their video "I Have Sex." The services of Planned Parenthood are vitally important to young people, who are often uninsured or low-income, or unable to go to their parents or schools for information. These youth want the House of Representatives to know that they are sexually and politically active, and they intend to make their voices and votes count.

Ready for Pleasure!

Ready for Pleasure photoshoot

I was pretty surprised to find myself spending a weekend as a model- not to mention modelling while holding condoms with the help of my sexagenarian parents! But that’s what I was doing in November on the Ready for Pleasure shoot with Options for Sexual Health (Opt) and Hello Cool World.

Hello Cool World and Opt have worked together for years to create sexy advertising that promotes Opt’s sexual health services, education programs and advocacy- you can check out some of the campaigns we’ve created. With both organizations celebrating major milestones this year, as we turn 10 and Opt turns 50, we’re definitely ready for pleasure!

With the theme of getting ready for pleasure in mind, the team created amazing photos that reflected Opt’s values and services. They’re about giving everyone the tools and information they need for sexual pleasure, and the photos reflect the diversity of sexual expression and sexuality throughout the lifespan that Opt is passionate about!

Options for Sexual Health

Putting Sex in Advertising Where It Belongs!



This website & blog is a space to showcase our Sex Ed clients and reflect on our work and philosophy around sexual health and advertising. It's a portal to campaigns, but it's also an exploration of our process, as well as our beliefs around what works to promote safer sex, healthy relationships & sexual rights, and why we think the key to being effective is to address "the pleasure deficit" in sexual health education.
