Sex Ed: the awkward class where you had to watch your gym teacher put a condom on a broom. No talk of pleasure or sexual desire - just handouts with diagrams on them. If you got lucky, maybe you got a lecture about that “special someone." Don’t worry - we’re here to update you on the science of sexual desire, sexual arousal, and sexual pleasure, and how the SageLab’s sex scientists are helping you learn more about you, and your partner's/partners' sexuality. We’ll help you update your sexual knowledge through a diverse lens – bring yourself, your friends, and that/those special someone(s)!
