From Harm Reduction to Diversity in Sex Education
Sex education materials are prescriptive (or normalizing) in their sanctioned approach of sexuality for people with intellectual disabilities, even though individuals express their sexuality in ways that are not the “approved” or “sanctioned.” These sex education materials adopt what I call a “harm reduction” approach to sexuality. The almost totalizing focus on reducing harms can distract from equally compelling efforts to equip individuals with sexual knowledge that can facilitate obtaining pleasure and satisfaction from sexuality.
