Virtual presentation via Zoom
Human beings are sexual for their entire lifespan. This does not necessarily mean that we are sexually active for all those years, just that we have a physical body with chromosomes, organs and hormones, an identity, an orientation and all the feelings associated with these aspects of ourselves. This presentation and discussion will explore the joys and complexity of human sexuality in American culture. You will have an opportunity to hear from an experienced sexuality educator as well as to ask questions and explore some of your own attitudes and values related to sexuality.
