FemSex challenges students by exposing them to diverse opinions and experiences different from their own. It is our hope that individuals leave the class with a newfound sense of empowerment and a greater understanding of how power and privilege are expressed in the world around us.
Students in this class will be expected to learn about a wide range of topics, including: anatomy and physiology, the influence of social hierarchies in all aspects of life, sexual health, policing of afab* bodies, body image, contraception and STIs, reproductive choices, solo sex, partnered sex, orgasm, sex work, communication, consent, relationship styles, gender/sex based violence, and empowerment. This course aims at creating an atmosphere that facilitates students ability to learn about their bodies, explore their boundaries, desires, experiences and expand their understanding of power and privilege.
You are allowed two absences, with the third absence resulting in failure of the course (FemSex DeCal Policy). Three tardies equal one absence. Any absences above two must be cleared through the facilitators and the faculty sponsor. There will be weekly assignments, as well as a weekly journal requirement (if you are uncomfortable with any assignment, alternate assignments are available). There will also be a final project, to be discussed at the end of the semester. No late assignments will be accepted.
Passing this class is based on a combination of the following: attendance, journals, section assignments, midterm and final project, and overall class participation. In order to pass this class, you cannot miss more than two journal entries, two assignments, and have more than two absences. You also cannot miss our sections on Power and Privilege (Section D), Body Image (Section G), Gender Based Violence (Section M), and Empowerment (Section N). You will get the most out of this class if you do everything assigned.
