This unit will critically consider sex, sexuality and understandings of sexual health from a range of historical, sociological, psychological, educational and public health perspectives. It will examine the ways in which expressions and understandings of sex and sexuality are simultaneously a matter of personal and public conversation. By exploring the various ways in which sex and sexuality are shaped in society students will have the opportunity to explore how varied approaches and views construct and constrain young people's sexual identities as well as shape approaches to sexual health education.
