“From underwired bras for tweens to the latest David Beckham underwear ad, most of us have something to say about the state of sex in our society. But when it comes to talking or even thinking about own relationship to sex, we tend to be a lot more coy.”
Quilliam explores the subject of sex – how to know what you really want, how society and our social upbringing affect our choices and behaviours, and what we really think about monogomy, fidelity, erotica, porn and guilt. If we can understand the role sex plays in our lives, she says, then we can learn how to get the most out of it.
This is a general exploration of the subject. There’s no pressure to talk about your own sex life and relationships if you don’t want to and at the end of the course you’ll receive a handout to help you explore your relationship with your sexuality further.
