Grace Victory is presenting a new sex education series on MTV International’s Snapchat Discover channel.
In each episode of Sex Squad, Grace talks to a different guest about topics ranging from porn to plastic surgery, answering audience questions on sex in “a fun, provocative way”.
On the move from vlogging to presenting, Grace tells TenEighty: “Presenting feels like a natural progression from vlogging and it’s made me realise this is what I want to do, it’s what I’m meant to do. I’m looking forward to seeing where things go from here.”
Interviewees already include Holly Hagan and Nathan Henry from Geordie Shore, who provided Grace with one of the more surprising moments of the series so far: “His story was heartfelt and was really open about his experiences; I couldn’t believe his sex toy confessions!”
Episodes will debut on MTV’s Snapchat, which Grace sees as a great platform for this type of content: “I absolutely love Snapchat. It’s so interactive and that’s what audiences want. We’re all nosy and Snap allows us to see people’s lives so easily.”
The episodes will then move to YouTube, where you can watch Grace’s interview with Hannah Witton:
Despite the increased accessibility of sex education, partly thanks to YouTubers like Grace and Hannah, Grace feels that there’s still work to be done. “Sex and other issues are always going to need awareness,” she says. “I think it’s the way people are raised, society in general, culture, religion, and lots of other factors too. That’s why I feel it is important for me to educate young people as much as I can.”
She recalls her own misconceptions about sex growing up: “I just wish someone told me that it’s not all rose petals and scented candles like the movies. I wish someone had told me about the borderline embarrassing moments, that we all experience but no one talks about!”
MTV Sex Squad will be released every Monday on MTV International’s Snapchat Discover channel.
