This course is designed for educators who are running Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) sessions for young people. The course supports the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) CSE curriculum and is divided into two parts. Part 1 aims to help educators develop the confidence and ability to include discussion of sexual pleasure whilst Part 2 provides suggestions of activities that can be used within CSE sessions.
- What is sexual pleasure?
- Why is it important to talk about pleasure?
- Why can it be difficult to talk about pleasure?
- Pleasure anatomy
- Communication, consent and relationships
- Sexual behaviours and practices.
The course also includes an Image Bank which contains diagrams and drawings you can download and print off for use in your CSE sessions.
Please note this course contains a small amount of sexually explicit material and asks you to think about your own experiences and ideas about sex and sexual pleasure.
The course has been developed in a partnership between the Open University and the International Planned Parenthood Federation and in collaboration with the following IPPF Member Associations: Family Planning Association of India (FPAI), RFSU of Sweden, Sex & Samfund of Denmark and Rutgers of the Netherlands.
