Mauricio Cruz Avendaño: The Future of Youth Sexual and Reproductive Rights

Kelly Castagnaro, Senior Communications Officer

How can you increase the size of your penis? How many times a day can you masturbate? Can you get a sexually transmitted infection if you touch yourself?

As a health promoter in rural Oaxaca, Mexico, Mauricio Cruz Avendaño is commonly asked these types of questions. Motivated by the goal of ensuring that all young people in Oaxaca can safely and responsibly exercise their sexuality, Mauricio works to break the myths, barriers, and taboos regarding sexuality among young people.
