Sex Ed Classes: Learning & Sharing
To start, I like to lead by example. So, if you’re interested in the field of sexual education that’s great. #SexEdFirst. I feel that the CSPH is a good start. I suggest their $75 Jumpstart Your Career in Sexuality course to begin because it has a directory of options to earn your accreditation. Also, it’s details on each, so you can determine which one is best for you. It’s a small investment because an accredited sex ed course can range from $1,700 to $7,000+.
Therefore, I think it’s a good idea to skip the hours of googling and check out the CSPH. To add, you can obtain a degree or professional certification from a university. Ultimately, the route you take depends on your budget.
Moreover, there are two national organizations, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (ASSECT) and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, that focus on sexuality education. You can pay for memberships even if you’re a student. However, I know from experience with ASSECT you have to have a bachelors or masters degree to pursue their accredited certifications.
Furthermore, it’s prohibited to mention you’re a member or use their logo unless you’re an accredited or licensed educator. I would like to become a member again when I graduate from NSU, and have funds to continue my sex education. Currently, I’m a member of the Women of Color Sexual Health Network.
In closing, adult sex ed is vital, because it’s so many uninformed grown-ups in the world. I am excited to try and change that. I look forward to being accredited one day, yet I am excited about my recent certification via the CSPH & Eldorado. It’s my preference to further my sex ed journey, despite being advised it wasn’t necessary. I think you should do what works for you and your personal goals.
Classes to expand your sexual knowledge:
In 2017, I received a Certificate of Completion in an Intersectionality for Human Services course via The Center of Sexual Pleasure and Health.
Moreover, help them to reduce sexual shame please and thanks! Check them out.
Soon after, I completed an online class called Introduction to Reproduction and a Photography class via Coursera. Moreover, I am elated they asked me to volunteer as a mentor for Summer 2018 photography students. Check out their sex ed course.
Reputable kink class:
“This six part electric play series is available now. You also get access to the entire library of 2000+ videos from 140+ of some of the most sought after BDSM/kink instructors in the world!” (Sunny Megatron)
Fall 2018, I completed a certification with the CSPH and Eldorado. Elevate U is a great no cost option for folks that sell adult items via the latter’s drop ship program and advocate sex ed. I’m so excited to take another course with the CSPH!
Now, I’m a certified beginner educator. Upon completion of additional lessons, I’ll be a Community Sexual Health Resource. If you don’t know how to start a website/blog to launch an online shop read this post.
