Sexuality Education in Universities: a South African Case Study

Sexuality Education in Universities: a South African Case Study

It proposes, nonetheless, that there is a radical split between curricula which approach sexualities through a bio-medical model and those which locate the construction of sexualities within contextual discourses and changing materialities. The overarching influence on sexuality education is the HIV and AIDs pandemic, but even this has not – except in exceptional cases — stimulated university-based teachers to attempt to bridge the paradigmatic chasms between \”teaching the medical body\” and \”teaching the discursive, social, and symbolic body\”. The paper makes specific proposals on how to address this.
