The Pleasure Project: Bringing Sexy Back

Most of the sex educators I know feel frustrated about the state of sex ed for countless reasons: lack of funding, lack of support, lack of teacher training, etc. Even when sex ed happens, it’s often sex-negative and disease-focused. Rarely does sex education address why people have sex.

The Pleasure Project” wishes to fill this gap, their aim being to “put the sexy back into safer sex.” They have tips for making safer sex more pleasurable and several links to pleasure-positive resources. You can also download a Lancet article, written by the project’s founder, that discusses delivering pleasure education and safer sex information alongside one another. Sex ed that acknowledges pleasure? Yes please!

    It’s about time!
    So much of the valued and professional information out there focuses specifically on the dangers and risks, and rarely do they ever include content about the positive aspects of sex and relationships. That’s often left to more “flippant” and less regarded content.
    We need a more inclusive discussion wherever sex is the subject. And this is a good step in that direction.

    What a great resource! I’m a peer health educator, and I think this kind of information would be useful to help encourage my fellow college students to use latex. Thanks for this!
