SEX EDUCATION




Sex education, which is sometimes called sexuality education or sex
and relationships education.

Sex education is a broad term used to describe education about human
sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, and other
aspects of human sexual behavior. Common avenues for sex education
are parents or caregivers, school programs, and public health
campaigns.

SEXOLOGY




Sexology is the study of sexual interests, behavior, and function.
In modern sexology, researchers apply tools from several academic
fields, including:



biology

medicine

psychology

statistics

epidemiology

pedagogics

sociology

anthropology

criminology



It studies sexual development and the development of sexual relationships
as well as the mechanics of sexual intercourse and sexual malfunction. It
also documents the sexualities of special groups, such as handicapped,
children, and elderly, and studies sexual pathologies such as sex addiction
and child sexual abuse.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT




Employment discrimination
Hostile environment sexual harassment
Microinequity
Sexism
Sexual abuse
Sexual harassment in education
Workplace bullying
Disciplinary counseling




Sexual harassment is intimidation, bullying or coercion of a sexual nature,
or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual
favors. In some contexts or circumstances, sexual harassment may be illegal.

It includes a range of behavior from seemingly mild transgressions and annoyances
to actual sexual abuse or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is a form of illegal
employment discrimination in many countries, and is a form of abuse (sexual and
psychological) and bullying. For many businesses, preventing sexual harassment,
and defending employees from sexual harassment charges, have become key goals of
legal decision-making. In contrast, many scholars complain that sexual harassment
in education remains a "forgotten secret," with educators and administrators
refusing to admit the problem exists in their schools, or accept their legal and
ethical responsibilities to deal with it.

WHAT SKILLS SHOULD
SEX EDUCATION DEVELOP?




If sex education is going to be effective it needs to include opportunities
for young people to develop skills, as it can be hard for them to act on the
basis of only having information.

The skills young people develop as part of sex education are linked to more
general life-skills. Being able to communicate, listen, negotiate with others,
ask for and identify sources of help and advice, are useful life-skills which
can be applied to sexual relationships. Effective sex education develops young
people's skills in negotiation, decision-making, assertion and listening. Other
important skills include being able to recognise pressures from other people and
to resist them, dealing with and challenging prejudice and being able to seek
help from adults - including parents, carers and professionals - through the
family, community and health and welfare services.




When should sex education start?



Sex education that works starts early, before young people reach puberty, and
before they have developed established patterns of behaviour. The precise age
at which information should be provided depends on the physical, emotional and
intellectual development of the young people as well as their level of
understanding. What is covered and also how, depends on who is providing the
sex education, when they are providing it, and in what context, as well as what
the individual young person wants to know about.

It is important for sex education to begin at a young age and also that it is
sustained. Giving young people basic information from an early age provides the
foundation on which more complex knowledge is built up over time. For example,
when they are very young, children can be informed about how people grow and
change over time, and how babies become children and then adults, and this
provides the basis on which they understand more detailed information about
puberty provided in the pre-teenage years. They can also when they are young,
be provided with information about viruses and germs that attack the body.
This provides the basis for talking to them later about infections that can
be caught through sexual contact.




Effective school-based sex education



School-based sex education can be an important and effective way of enhancing
young people's knowledge, attitudes and behaviour. There is widespread agreement
that formal education should include sex education and what works has been well-
researched. Evidence suggests that effective school programmes will include the
following elements:


A focus on reducing specific risky behaviours

A clear, and continuously reinforced message about sexual behaviour and risk
reduction

Providing accurate information about, the risks associated with sexual activity,
about contraception and birth control, and about methods of avoiding or deferring
intercourse

Dealing with peer and other social pressures on young people; providing opportunities
to practise communication, negotiation and assertion skills

Uses a variety of approaches to teaching and learning that involve and engage young
people and help them to personalise the information

Uses approaches to teaching and learning which are appropriate to young people's age,
experience and cultural background

Is provided by people who believe in what they are saying and have access to support
in the form of training or consultation with other sex educators

SAFE SEX




Safe sex is defined as sexual activity engaged in by people who have
taken precautions to protect themselves against sexually transmitted
diseases (STDs) such as AIDS. It is also referred to as safer sex, or
protected sex, while unsafe sex or unprotected sex is sexual activity
engaged in without precautions. Some sources prefer the term safer sex
to more precisely reflect the fact that these practices reduce, but do
not completely eliminate, the risk of disease transmission. In recent
years, the term "sexually transmitted infections" (STIs) has been
preferred over "STDs," as it has a broader range of meaning; a person
may be infected, and may potentially infect others, without showing
signs of disease.

Promoting safe sex is now one of the aims of sex education. From the
viewpoint of society, safe sex can be regarded as a harm reduction
strategy aimed at reducing risks.

The risk reduction of safe sex is not absolute; for example the reduced
risk to the receptive partner of acquiring HIV from HIV seropositive
partners not wearing condoms to compared to when they wear them is
estimated to be about a four- to fivefold.

Although some safe sex practices can be used as contraception, most forms
of contraception do not protect against all or any STIs; likewise, some
safe sex practices, like partner selection and low risk sex behavior, are
not effective forms of contraception.

SEX EDUCATION PROGRAMS




Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Programs,

sometimes called Sexual Risk Avoidance Programs, teach abstinence
as the only morally correct option of sexual expression for
teenagers. They usually censor information about contraception and
condoms for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
and unintended pregnancy.



Abstinence-Centered Education

Another term normally used to mean abstinence-only programs.


Comprehensive Sex Education

teaches about abstinence as the best method for avoiding STDs and
unintended pregnancy, but also teaches about condoms and contraception
to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and of infection with STDs,
including HIV. It also teaches interpersonal and communication skills
and helps young people explore their own values, goals, and options.



Abstinence-Plus Education—Programs

which include information about contraception and condoms in the context
of strong abstinence messages.
