Someone Like Me is a partnership between the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Durex that is championing happier and healthier sex lives for young people across the globe.
Through digital and social media, Someone Like Me is inspiring a generation to talk more openly about sex, freely ask questions and add their voice to a global movement. We want to empower a generation to take actions, be those big or small, to change perceptions and overcome barriers when it comes to sex and staying healthy.
