THINK you know everything about doing the nasty? Chances are you’ve still got stuff to learn, which is why condom company Hanx launched the UK’s first sex education classes for adults (#sexedforadults), covering everything from foreplay to communication, intercourse and condom use.
The first class earlier this month — run in conjunction with Covent Garden lingerie store Coco De Mer and Cosmo ‘sexpert’ Paisley Gilmour — was packed out but a spokesperson says more are on the way.
‘Not only do we have a huge gap in our sex education, and a complete absence in sex ed after school, often our education is from friends or porn,’ says Hanx. ‘This is not always the most accurate or safe way to learn. It can also encourage violence and demeaning acts, which then some people regard as “normal”. To stay connected to our sexual wellbeing, we need to keep learning.’
Sounds like one lesson you won’t mind taking homework away from.
