Woman uses own experiences as teenage mom in popular teen sex Webcasts
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Nikol Hasler doesn't recommend the "pull and pray" method of birth control. She says you should not have sex on nature trails because of bugs and Sasquatch. And if you hate your body as a teen, just wait.
The 28-year-old Waukesha mother of three speaks from experience and thousands watch her popular video podcast, the Midwest Teen Sex Show, on the Internet.
Hasler knows what she's talking about. She's the product of a teen pregnancy and spent years in foster care. She got pregnant in her first year of college and dropped out.
That was 9 years ago. Now Hasler uses her experiences to dish out frank advice to teens about sex, dating and sexually transmitted diseases.
The podcast launched this summer and is in the top 10 health podcasts on iTunes.
Hasler says sometimes the humor of the show's skits and advice may be a bit off the wall. But she says that gets teens to think, and to talk about these topics.
