There are a ton of television shows out there talking about teen moms, and at the recent Sex::Tech conference in San Francisco I had an important realization: being on the show is their job! I totally admire them for being brave enough to show their hardships and challenges on the show, but in reality, I have no idea what their backstory is, how much and if they get paid, and how much of the show is real. So we did a little mini-version of 16 and Pregnant, by interviewing an AMAZING teen mom down in San Diego. Check it out on our Youtube channel!
We were super impressed with this teen's honesty and power of spirit. And best of all, it's real! If you have any feedback or want to give these girls some props… comment on the blog post below!
