You'd think that MTV would have been quick to produce original shows for Snapchat's Discover portal (to be where the young people are), but nope -- it's only just getting to that now. The network has unveiled Pants Off, an eight-episode series that dishes out serious advice on sex and relationships in an accessible way. Sex educator and video blogger Laci Green hosts each of the short-form clips, which tackle everything from sex advice myths to dating apps. It's clear that MTV and Green aren't pulling many (if any) punches in the first episode. Although there isn't anything graphic on screen so far, you probably want to watch with headphones on while you're in public.

It's a somewhat unusual move for MTV, which is skipping the usual entertainment news and reality shows in favor of a weighty topic. However, it makes sense given both Snapchat itself and the people who use it. Sex advice is not only relevant to teens and young adults who thrive on Snapchat, but well-suited to a phone-oriented format -- you can get sexuality tips while you're on the bus. There's no mention of future Discover shows just yet, but it's easy to see more on the way if Pants Off proves to be a hit.
