“Sex education is high quality teaching and learning about a broad variety of topics related to sex and sexuality, exploring values and beliefs about those topics and gaining the skills that are needed to navigate relationships and manage one’s own sexual health. Sex education may take place in schools, in community settings, or online.” (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/for-educators/what-sex-education)

 

“Comprehensive sexuality education refers to K-12 programs that cover a broad range of topics related to:

 

  • Human Development (including reproduction, puberty, sexual orientation, and gender identity)
  • Relationships (including families, friendships, romantic relationships and dating)
  • Personal Skills (including communication, negotiation, and decision-making)
  • Sexual Behavior (including abstinence and sexuality throughout life)
  • Sexual Health (including sexually transmitted diseases, contraception, and pregnancy)
  • Society and Culture (including gender roles, diversity, and sexuality in the media)” (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/for-educators/what-sex-education)

 

Sexuality education can also be provided to adults through similar tools to help people keep up-to-date with the ever-changing world of human sexuality.
