  • Audiences say…

    “We were so thrilled to partner with Trixie Films and Therese to host a screening of her amazing documentary during our 2014 Sex Ed Weeks of Action! The event was attended by college students, parents, community organizations, and teens. We loved this educational collaboration!”
    – Planned Parenthood of New York City

    "Therese's talk at Sex Weekend at Harvard reminded students that virginity is not black and white. She challenged us to think about our own beliefs in an interesting and inclusive way."
    –Harvard University

    "Our teens were grateful to screen the film with Therese and discuss their reactions with her after they watched it. It was eye-opening to see the parallels Therese makes between the historical context of virginity to current cultural practices we accept as the norm. Great film!"
    –NARAL Pro-Choice New York

    "Therese was very knowledgeable and did a great job in interacting with the NYU  community. We have heard nothing but great things!"
    –New York University

    "Therese gave depth to a conversation I never would have been able to provide on my own. The topic is so multi-faceted and complicated, this was a great way to jump start a discussion and get students engaged."
    –LaGuardia Community College
