In Place of Fear and Shame, We Need Sex-Positive Education
Play • 37 min

Sexual education is extremely important and we need more of it. In the second episode of our mini-series about human sexuality we talk with Dr. Theodore Burnes about the need for educators to go beyond the “SexEd” class, incorporating open and sex-positive discussions about sexuality, and gender also across young people’s educations. Dr. Burns, a therapist and educator specializing in sexuality and gender, shares with us key strategies to create culturally responsive, sex-positive learning environments that make children safer.

You can  find out more about the Master of Arts in Applied Psychology that Theo teaches in, and in particular its LGBT-Affirming Psychology Specialization on our website.
