So You Want to Study Sexuality…

As our semester here at Indiana University (IU) comes to a close, my students often share how much they have enjoyed taking a class in human sexuality and they ask what other courses they can take. We’re fortunate at IU as there are classes in sex and gender in a number of departments, so one cannot possibly be comprehensive (especially as new classes pop up from time to time), but here is roughly what I share with them:

In the School of Public Health (SPH), we offer a minor in Human Sexuality and list, on the linked page, a number of our course offerings. In addition to classes about sexuality that I teach, faculty such as Drs. Brian Dodge, William Yarber, Sherwood-Laughlin, Reece, and Eastman-Mueller have – for many years – been teaching sexuality-related classes in the SPH. Dr. Sherwood-Laughlin leads a particularly well-regarded course about teaching methods related to sexuality education. I also encourage students to explore departments and faculty all around campus.

Wait a minute, that was real!

Q & A: Why Do Feminists Defend Porn That Puts The Performers At Risk?

Why are feminists okay that laws don’t criminalize violent porn? I am waiting for people to step up for those “actors” in these films. Maybe a few are consenting sometimes, but it might as well be actual rape/assault, happening to actual women.
