Sex ed for adults - help needed!
by Jess McCabe // 20 March 2008, 13:20
Following on from Laura's post about the poverty of sex education in the UK, we got thinking about ways to fill in those gaps (and then some) for adults.
Me and Laura are looking to compile a listing of resources on safe, happy, consenting sex, relationships and sexuality, for the over 18 set, who can no longer benefit from whatever wisdom HMG and the national curriculum might impart. Can you help us?
Of course, we're particularly interested in anything which is coming from an explicitly or implicitly feminist perspective. And we're interested in making this as inclusive as possible. That means regardless of/aimed at all levels of experience (beginner to advanced!), sexuality, gender, kink or lack thereof, etc.
Book, blog, website, workshop, feminist/women's sex toy store, DVD, audio tape - whatever it is, we're interested! Not porn though, at least partly because that gets into contentious territory we're not really interested in for this one.
A few words on why you are making the recommendation would also be great. You can tell us anonymously if you so wish in the comments, or email us using the feedback form.
We've got a few resources listed in the bookshop's sex and relationships section, to get your thought process started.
