Sex & Culture

Goalto enable participants to become more acutely aware of and to have increased sensitivity about sexual diversity.

Rationale

Sexological worldview is the often unexamined but changeable perspective held by each person about the world around them with regards to sexuality. In order to accomplish specific social and cultural goals like accepting diversity, inclusion of sexual differences and minorities, and applying human rights to all, it is important that to be able to shift cultural perspective (worldview) and adapt behaviour and cognitions to cultural commonality and difference.
