Human Sexuality

I read this article from the NY Times and was struck by how we often fail our children around the topic of human sexuality:

When did porn become sex ed?

The statistics on sexual assault may have forced a national dialogue on consent, but honest conversations between adults and teenagers about what happens after yes — discussions about ethics, respect, decision making, sensuality, reciprocity, relationship building, the ability to assert desires and set limits — remain rare. And while we are more often telling children that both parties must agree unequivocally to a sexual encounter, we still tend to avoid the biggest taboo of all: women’s capacity for and entitlement to sexual pleasure.

Where is the church in this? How can we help children and parents engage in this topic?

Lo and behold, a resource is coming!
