Let’s talk about sex, baby...

The giggles. The euphemisms. The traditionally non-sexual objects transformed into those of bewilderment as you learned about S – E – X. We all remember some form of education, but for over a century, we utilized films as the primary method of teaching sex-ed in schools. Many people look back at how they learned about sex, whether it was a book, an embarrassing parental chat, a school presentation, or porn, and remember their shock and embarrassment. Looking back though, we can’t help but laugh at how we learned. Through the lens of the often hilarious, only sometimes informative, sex-ed films from 1910 to the present day, Sex(ed): The Movie illustrates how emblematic this education is of both our evolving culture and the changing moral, cultural, and political attitudes and agendas that inspired them.
