…is more than „the birds and the bees“.
The aim of sexual education is to open up a room for the discussion of different topics and enabling people to make self-determined decisions concerning their own sexuality and sexual identity. Comprehensive sexual education contains topics like consent, gender roles, media, anatomy, body-consciousness, reproduction, contraception sexual rights etc. as well as the discussion of values and attitudes.
Therefore, talking about feelings and understanding the concept of consent belongs to comprehensive sexual education as well as anatomy or talking about the menstrual cycle. All of these topics are part of a bigger picture named health education and promotion of health.
Within this project, we want to give people the tools to understand and discuss concepts of sexuality and sex education in a constructive way. Therefore, we need to talk about it in an unexcited way rather than scandalize or sexualize these issues.
