Human sexuality, unlike calculus, is something you will actually need to know for the rest of your life.
To educate our community about sexual health in all its forms. We believe that realistic sexual health is interdisciplinary, and includes non-traditional topics like LGBTQ sex ed, healthy masculinity, gender equality, and reproductive rights. We aim to connect to our peers through dynamic, comprehensive activities that are geared towards the needs of our community.
The state of Ohio has no regulated sex education. The Ohio State University is mostly comprised of the products of Ohio school systems. How can we possibly expect everyone to be on the same page when it comes to sex? Right now, aren’t even reading the same book.
Sex Week is working to fix that. We hope you will join us.
