Currently sex education is something that is mainly reserved for 9 to 15-year-olds. But is this the only time we really need to be learning about such an important topic? Many adults face challenges in finding the space and resources to discuss and learn about sexuality. What do we need to learn, unlearn or relearn? From whom? Why is it difficult or uncomfortable to learn keep learning about sex as we age? This necessary dialogue extends beyond personal growth. How can open discussions about sexuality contribute to dismantling taboos and stereotypes, promoting a culture of consent and respect, and creating safe spaces for marginalized voices? This public conversation will explore the kind of lifelong sex education we need and what is holding us back from getting it.
