Jessica Biel has never been shy about revealing her secrets for keeping her toned bod. But after giving birth to son Silas Randall Timberlake, she's more concerned with educating women about what's going on INSIDE their bodies!
The Accidental Love star teamed up with activist Saundra Pelletier, founder of the healthcare organization WomanCare Global, to launch an online sex education video series for women!

After deciding to have a child two years ago, the 33-year-old recalled how little she knew on the subject of pregnancy. She said:
"Now what happens? I've been on the Pill for so long; how hard will it be to get pregnant? Suddenly I realized I really didn't know what's going on inside my own body. It was shocking."
But pregnancy isn't the only topic Biel and Pelletier are covering. The video series will cover "everything from puberty to contraception!"
Biel wants to teach girls not to feel "ashamed" of their bodies, as she remembers her own embarrassing memories in fifth grade when she got her period. She recalled:
"I was in a school play, wearing a gray beard and this pad the size of a skateboard and thinking, What is happening to me? We want girls to know what their [body is going through] so they don't feel scared or ashamed or gross."
While the videos plan to "share girl stories, fears, and insecurities," the new mom says not to expect just another corny sex-ed class. She adds:
"The tone is informative but also goofy, smart, witty."
We think it's wonderful that the actress is so passionate about educating girls about their bodies! You can watch the videos on WomanCare's website HERE!
