Exhibit: Birds Do It, Bees Do It

Sex ed imageFrom junior high school hygiene films to websites, public health campaigns, scientific studies, children’s books, bodice-ripper novels and (sometimes) parents, Americans have always found ways to learn about sex. That information has at times been incorrect or incomplete, and has rarely been delivered without a larger political or moral agenda. While attitudes towards sex education swing from the blissfulness of ignorance to the empowerment of liberation, every generation finds new ways to answer the old questions. Our desire to learn about desire has not changed. This exhibition draws from the resources of campus libraries, from our academic programs, and from social services provided for the Berkeley campus community.
