Building sex education at Stanford

Stanford has always been respected and celebrated for being at the forefront of research and education, yet before this year, the student experience of sex education seems to have fallen short. Yes, there is an eye-opening, optional class that Vaden and the SHPRC offer, but if you, like most people in the world, grew up without a background of sexual health education, it may feel awkward, shameful or unimportant to seek out this class. How can we expect our students to know how to navigate relationships, dating and college life without any place to learn and process these critical issues?

Improving sex ed?

Sex education policy should not just focus on the worst-case scenarios, but also provide information for how students can grow into their sexuality. By providing sex positive programming to the freshmen class, we enable them to make responsible decisions as they grow into their adulthood.
