A Girl Scout Troop in Riverside, CA, will be hosting me for this educational event.
The intent is to teach the girls sex education with an approach that integrates compassion, normalizing sexual topics, and empowerment, and reduces misinformation, shame, and coercion.
Topics (some will get emphasized more than others due to time):
Media literacy & music lyrics
Gender differences in sexual interests and how raised
Sexual consent – how to know when ready, coercion continuum, sexting
Sexual topics overall, such as first kiss, oral sex, virginity, mechanical part of intercourse, orgasm, social norms
Desire and pleasure
The following emotional and social intelligence skills will be integrated into all of the topics:
Compassion and collaboration instead of competition with other girls
Awareness of peer pressure from girls and boys around sex and body topics
Healthy decision-making and awareness of responsibility
The right to do and not do what she wants
