Contemplate and share your perceptions regarding the following questions:
- Is sex everywhere in our society? Please provide support and examples for your position from the chapter, personal experience/observations and other credible research you may include.
- If you answered yes to the above statement, what could potentially be the impetus for this based on the chapter readings, your own views and observations?
- How does this impact us as individuals, couples, and families?
This then ties in with the topic of sex education in America …
From your own experience and what we have learned in class from chapter 4, “Our Sexual Selves”:
- How do you think we are doing as a country concerning educating ourselves and future generations about sex?
- Thinking about how you learned about sex—what role did your parents play, your peers, your school, even media? Would you have wanted anything done differently and if so, what?
- Finally, our text addresses the topic of sexual responsibility and based on the definition provided, what does that mean to you and how can our society promote and encourage sexual responsibility in how we teach and address sexuality?
Remember to explain and support your views with not only opinion but information from the chapter along with other credible sources you may choose to you.
