By now you’ve probably heard that the NCAA has agreed to a new “reinventing” of its sex education curriculum, but the reality is that it’s all part of the same larger project to rebrand college sports.
As a result, the NCAA and its partners have announced a series of new sex education and health education curricula for schools.
They will include more specific lessons on sex, including the dangers of STDs, the benefits of condom use, and other important topics.
For instance, a lesson on STDs in the NCAA’s “Health and Safety” class will focus on “The Male and Female Human Reproduction Process,” which is the part of our bodies that produce sperm and eggs, the body’s primary form of reproduction.
We don’t have much choice when it comes to reproductive health and STDs are one of the biggest causes of sexually transmitted infections in the United States, with over 30 million new infections each year, according to the CDC.
To learn more about sexual health and the risk of STIs, the “Health, Safety, and Education” course will cover “Pregnancy, Family Planning, and Sexual Health,” “Prevention, Management, and Treatment of Sexual and Reproductive Health Issues,” “Male and Female Sexuality,” and “Healthy Sexuality.”
The same is true for “Sexual Health and the Human Reproductive System” (HREHS), which covers “How to Deal with Sexual Harassment and Violence,” “What to Do if a Male or Female Partner Uses Sexual Harassing Behavior,” “Safe Sex Practices for Men and Women,” and the “Rape Prevention and Education for Women” course.
The new sex ed curricula will also include a discussion of the role of the “female sexual organ” in reproduction.
The HREHS course focuses on female reproduction, but it will also highlight the importance of the female orgasm, the ability to have sex and ejaculate, and the importance for women to maintain healthy sexual relationships.
For example, the HREHHS course includes a discussion on “the male and female sexual organ, the clitoris, and female pleasure,” which provides an overview of how the penis works and how to properly lubricate it.
The course also covers “male ejaculation,” “the female reproductive system,” and what happens when sex and pleasure are not “good enough.”
A few new topics to be covered include “The Human Female, the Male, and Women’s Health,” and, of course, the importance and value of “safe sex.”
The NCAA is also rolling out a series on “Sex Education and Health: The Human Female” that will focus more on health, including “Safe Sexual Practices for Male and Male Sexuality” and “What’s Safe and Good for Your Sex Life.”
These lessons are intended to give young people more “context” about how they can safely and effectively communicate and interact with people, including other adults, when it’s appropriate.
While the “health and safety” class focuses on STIs and the dangers they can pose, it will cover important topics such as STDs and sexual orientation.
For instance, the new “Health & Safety” course discusses “Possible Prevention and Treatment” for STDs with a focus on preventing the spread of sexually active STDs.
The health & safety class will also discuss the importance to men and women of sexual safety and privacy, as well as how to prevent STDs from spreading through casual encounters.
The NCAA will also be adding a new lesson on “HIV/AIDS and AIDS-Related Conditions,” which focuses on “Stigma, Insecurity, and Self-Esteem” and is designed to provide students with a deeper understanding of HIV and AIDS and HIV-related issues.
The new “H&H” class addresses the “Challenges of HIV-Related and HIV Treatment” and will be an introduction to HIV-positive individuals and their families.
The “H.I.V.AIDS and H.
S.T. Class” will focus primarily on the importance “to be HIV-free and/or to have a positive HIV test” and how “to talk about HIV-infected behaviors, feelings, thoughts, and actions with other people.”
The “Health Education and Education: Women” class, which will include an introduction and explanation of “The female reproductive tract,” will also address “The Female Body and Reproduction,” which includes “The Role of the Female Sexual Organ in Reproduction.”
This lesson will address “Sexual and Reproducible Intercourse,” “The Reproductive Systems and Sexuality of Women,” “Hormones, Sex, and Reproductivity,” and other topics related to “Women’s Health.”
Finally, the rest of the NCAA Health & Safety & Education classes will focus largely on “Men’s Health & Fitness,” which will address the “Role of the Male Sexual Organ” and the health and fitness of the male body.
