Since 2016,  it has become clear that sex education in America still naively focuses almost exclusively on anatomical, medical and preventive aspects and hardly ever on the ethical and emotional facets of a sexual relationship. Mired in political and religious debate, standard sex eduction abandons young women and men to borrow and develop narratives from friends and digital sources, including porn sites. Notable too in the US is the absence of comprehensive sex education by parents in regard to the desirable aims and management of desire.
To the extent that stubbornly persistent gender dynamics and sexual scripts thus prevail, women's desire remains elusive, if not hidden, and men's desire triumphs in a feral way. The impact of this ongoing drama, which has it's roots in part, in Freud's famous question about what women want, will be explored in this workshop.
