Our Story

This initiative was born out of previous research by Maëlle Weber focusing on "Asexual Perspectives on Sex Education". People on the asexual spectrum (asexual, demisexual, graysexual) answered an online qualitative survey about their experiences with sex ed and what they would have liked to have seen.

What Is Comprehensive Sexuality Education?

Curriculum-based education that is scientifically-accurate and addresses all topics that are relevant to sexual health and well-being. It promotes human rights and complete accessibility, meaning it does not discriminate based on a person's social location. It does not practice compulsory sexuality, and promotes the prevention of gender-based violence and gender equity. It balances the positive aspects of sexuality with the prevention of negative health outcomes, such as STIs. It is provided by educators who are knowledgeable about sexuality, well-trained in both theory and practice, and are administratively supported.

How Do We Create The Training Curriculum?

Five Main Themes That Structure Our Content

SEXEDUCATE operates in the reality that current sex education curriculum does not discuss consent, pleasure & the positive aspects of sexuality, or health information that was relevant to the intersection of students’ identities. As a result, we draw from the research "Asexual Perspectives on Sex Education" create holistic and justice-based content in order to provide the most accurate information that will equip youth with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to empower them. 

However, this is NOT possible if educators do not have the training and support to deliver comprehensive sex ed to students. As a result, SEXEDUCATE uses the five main themes of asexual sex ed to dictate our content in a way that is adaptable for different age groups and their learning needs, accessible for disabled people, and culturally-competent.

Check out the slides below for more information on the five main themes of our content!

From a young age, we are socialized to be "polite" and have "good manners" at the expense of our bodily autonomy. We've all been told that "its rude to not let Grandma hug you", and as a result we grow used to having our physical and emotional boundaries disrespected under the cloak of "politeness".


However, discussions of consent in sex education always focus on sexual and romantic relationships. This excludes the importance of consent in other types of relationships like platonic and familial, despite their equal importance.

With advances in technology, and the increased normalization of social media, sex education must include discussions on digital dating safety. This includes sexting and the use of online dating platforms.
