SOC - Sociology of Human Sexuality This course explores the social construction of sexual ignorance and the social accomplishment of sexual repression. Sociologically we will address how conventional sex education reinforces sexual ignorance and how, even in this most private and intimate of spheres, the fingers of society are relentlessly present. It addresses our sexual socialization and our current schizophrenic culture of puritanism and pornography. Simultaneously we will attempt to promote greater realism, greater skillfulness and greater literacy regarding our lives as sexual beings, as gendered beings and as romantic beings.
