- “In these times of breaking out of old patterns and changing paradigms, we can’t leave sexuality out!”
“[SSEX BBOX] sexuality outside of the box” is the first web documentary series exploring sexuality as a means for social change.
[SSEX BBOX] is a social justice web series and documentary that aspires to create sexual awareness worldwide. We believe that sex should be discussed, explored, felt and consciously experienced more “outside of the box”. Our goal is to expand consciousness, dismantle shame, isolation, and ignorance and facilitate community, education and awareness by questioning archaic and obsolete understandings of gender and sexuality and offering information, conversations and new ideas. Taking viewers on a tour through São Paulo, San Francisco, Berlin, and Barcelona, [SSEX BBOX] reveals the many faces of sexuality internationally, and explores their collisions with censorship and civic borders.
Currently, film crews in these four cities are documenting “sexuality outside the box” through interviews with sex educators, artists, personalities, and people from a diverse range of sexual orientations and genders, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, genderqueer, and straight folks on topics such as gender, sexual orientation, sex work, polyamory, and relationship skills.
[SSEX BBOX] exposes our commonalities and our uniqueness when it comes to gender expression and sexuality.
Our commitment extends beyond sexuality to all human rights, including access to knowledge and information. With this in mind, we decided to make it easier for our audience to benefit from and enjoy [SSEX BBOX].
By using the web to distribute our films, we plan to help create a community for all people; queer, straight, within and outside of the gender binary. Our commitment is to create a space stimulating conversations about sexuality and helping others find out more about themselves and their desires.
[SSEX BBOX] will release 7 episodes from January to November 2012. Each episode will focus on a specific subject.
[SSEX BBOX] web series is supported by the Center for Sex & Culture and has also received advising and consultation from sexologist, Carol Queen, Ph.D and psychotherapist and expressive arts therapist, Therese Noel Allen, MA, MFT.

- “Estamos na era da quebra de padrões obsoletos e mudança de paradigmas e a sexualidade não fica fora disso.”
[SSEX BBOX] é uma web - serie documental de justiça social que procura criar consciência sexual em varias partes do mundo. Acreditamos que sexo deveria ser mais discutido, explorado, sentido e experimentado conscientemente e “fora da caixa”.
Nosso objetivo é expandir a consciência oferecendo informações, conversas e novas idéias, para desmantelar a vergonha, o isolamento e ignorância e facilitar a educação da comunidade questionando os entendimentos arcaicos e obsoletos de gênero e sexualidade.
Levando os espectadores em uma turnê por São Paulo, San Francisco, Berlim e Barcelona, [SSEX BBOX] revela as muitas faces da sexualidade a nível internacional, e explora suas colisões com a censura e as fronteiras cívicas.
Atualmente, temos equipes de filmagem documentando nessas quatro cidades “a sexualidade fora da caixa” por meio de entrevistas com educadores sexuais, artistas, personalidades e pessoas com uma diversificada gama de orientação sexual e gênero.
[SSEX BBOX] é uma série de vídeos para web com episódios mensais, a série de 7 episódios começou a ser exibida na internet web em janeiro de 2012.
