‘Girl Sex 101’ Highlights The Need For Queer-Inclusive Sex Ed (NSFW IMAGES)


We’re all aware of the delusional and dangerous narrative coming out of the Christian Right that says that any sex education given to America’s youth is ungodly, immoral, sinful, and perverted. These people sincerely believe that not talking about sex to kids means that they won’t learn misinformation about it elsewhere, and, even more laughable, that they won’t have sex.

This bit of insanity was quickly proven wrong when a high school in a town with abstinence only sex education was plagued by a rather widespread chlamydia outbreak.

Luckily, a California judge not only called these yahoos on their insane ideas regarding the realities of teenagers and sex, he also said that it was a violation of children’s rights to education about their own bodies and health, and ruled that abstinence-only sex education did not count as sex education at all.

Well, that is definitely a step in the right direction, but there’s still one group of kids who need to learn about having safe sex in school that isn’t getting any of the information they need: Queer kids. Even the sex education classes that do actually teach what kids need to know certainly don’t teach anything about gay sex. I am sure I am not the only queer out here who had to learn this stuff through trial and error. Well, never fear, there is a resource out there that is looking to change all that.

Girl Sex 101 is a fun combination of fiction, comic strips and other rich, creative ideas that is designed to teach the reality of having safe and enjoyable sex to everyone, including queer kids, a guide that is much more inclusive than anything found in a typical middle or high school sex ed class. The book was written by Allison Moon and illustrated by KD Diamond, and it is truly a gem, in more than one sense of the word.

There are fun and helpful suggestions in a quirky image form, such as the one below, which teaches about all the different kinds of barriers for safe sex, and when a lack of barriers is okay:

Others teach the reality of the different kinds of strap-ons and how to use them safely. As silly, embarrassing, and downright raunchy as the following image might be, the reality is that using such a device improperly could actually result in injury, and lack of proper cleaning could result in the transmission of sexually transmitted infections.

All in all, this is a pretty good guide to have to make sex education all-inclusive. When speaking to The Huffington Post, who had followed the project since its inception, co-author Allison Moon had this to say:

I wanted to write a book that was inclusive, conversational, and fun to read. Too many sex-ed books presume too many things about their readers, and sexuality is often more complicated and nuanced than any one-size-fits-all model. I wanted Girl Sex 101 to speak to readers without implied judgements about the kind of sex they like, the kind of body they have, or the people they choose to date. Plus, I wanted it to be info-packed, colorful, funny and easy to read.

Well, it certainly seems that Allison Moon and KD Diamond succeeded in this goal. Girl Sex 101 is the revolution in sex education. I say we put full classroom-sized sets in every middle and high school health class in America, and watch the right-wingers really lose their minds over sex.
