In this 4th episode Professor Sharon and PhD student Madeline discuss the new Netflix show “Sex Education” and are very pleased with themselves to be so “current!” Before embarking on a Spoilers Alert extravaganza they review for their listeners the SECS-C – that is, the Sexual Ethics for a Caring Society Curriculum – a curriculum the two of them taught to 9th graders in a charter school in Cambridge, MA. The SECS-C is not only ethics-based but a practical philosophy curriculum that teaches students about ethical sexual encountering via concepts such as autonomy, privacy, benevolence, and justice. It was before-its-time in that the curriculum ensured that students were learning about how to treat others ethically, and how to think about sex in society.

Consent is not Enough, Part 1

In this episode, Professor Sharon and PhD student Madeline take on the recent consent campaigns popping up on college campuses across the U.S., campaigns aimed at preventing sexual assault by educating adults about what consent is and isn’t. The two of them toss around a few of the campaign poster slogans with an ear for the ridiculous. With a few distractions from Daisy, Madeline’s incorrigible Corgi, they work out what’s problematic about using consent as the line between ethical and unethical sex, and put out into the universe some higher ethical standards for “good” sex.
