Pleasure

Relationships and sex education (RSE) can often focus on the negatives of infection, risks of pregnancy, exploitation and violence. But this is not a positive, honest or realistic place to start from.

RSE can also have more of a focus on sex for reproduction but the young people you are educating will be well aware that most of us have sex because it is pleasurable.

Our pleasure course was developed as part of a joint project with the University of Sussex and is based on original doctoral research by Dr Ester McGeeney.

Ester worked extensively with young people to research the realities of their own experiences of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ sex. The course is woven with Ester’s findings and the voices of young people, together with a series of tried-and-tested activities that Ester developed as part of her work.

Our pleasure course goes hand in hand with our consent course. Both can help you equip young people to have more safe, ethical and enjoyable sexual experiences.

This course is divided into four modules:

  • Why pleasure?
  • Having sex for the first time
  • The anatomy of pleasure
  • Good sex, bad sex, depends…

The course also includes a range of high quality downloadable resources that you can use in class together with the skills and confidence to deliver tried and tested activities on various aspects of pleasure.
