Let's Talk About Sex Ed!
I invite you to tell me about your sexual education and the impact it has made upon your life. Please share this with as many people as you can!

WHAT THIS IS FOR: What should sex and relationship education consist of in order to support health and happiness? I am creating a podcast series, accompanied by written and video pieces, exploring this question. Rather than rely upon statistics and figures, I would like to draw upon the personal experiences of a wide variety of people from all walks of life. My aim is to put together a clearer, broader picture of what sex and relationship education should consist of in order to be scientifically-informed, holistic, sex-positive and inclusive of all identities and experiences, including the LGBTQ+ communities and all lesser-represented minority communities.

IMPORTANT: Everyone deserves to feel safe when talking about sex, so none of these questions are obligatory. You are invited to answer in as much detail as you feel comfortable with.

EXTRA IMPORTANT: If at any point these questions cause you feelings of anxiety or distress, PLEASE STOP. Take as much time as you need, or stop entirely if need be. If you would like to fill out this form but feel that you cannot, there is a comment box at the end of this section, and another at the end of the form, where you have the option to indicate this.

ANONYMITY / DISCLOSURE: If you would like to be anonymous, or you would prefer not to have some of your answers directly quoted, please indicate so at the end of this section.

Thank you for participating!

4. What impact has your sex education had upon your life? Has it been positive, negative, or had no impact? Why?
Your answer
Questions 5 - 8 deal with particular topics currently not specified in the UK guidelines for sex and relationship education. You are invited to choose the topics you feel you would have most benefitted from learning about at school.
NOTE: These topics have been divided roughly into the following groups: physical aspects of sexual health, sexual well-being and cultural/social issues related to sex. It is important to note that many of these topics belong in multiple categories (for example, 'sexual arousal and orgasms' can be related to physiology, psychology, sexual well-being, cultural issues, media representations, and so on). They have been separated here for the sake of clarity and focus.

You will have the opportunity to elaborate upon your answers in Question 8.
