"What is Sex?" and "What does Abstinence Mean?" Exercises
(You will need to copy and paste these instructions.)
These are two different activities that I use in different classes, but the activity is the same.
Each possible answer is printed out separately on bright paper. I put each sign around the room in order with enough space between them so that students can group themselves separately under each sign.
The What Is Sex? is good for pointing out the need to be explicit when doing sex research because the questioner and the participant may have different definitions. That's the conclusion I want them to reach. How I do that is by asking them to stand by the sign that most correctly identifies what sex means in different situations (on the first page). (I heard about this from someone else and created my own version.)
The What does Abstinence Mean? exercise points out that people have different ideas about the meaning. I almost always get people who are in the "anything up until genital fondling" and in the "oral sex is okay" groups. I don't state that any of them are correct or the right meaning. It isn't about right or wrong, it is about communicating. I usually do this after the sexual communication skills unit, so it reemphasizes how important comm skills are. But I also will point out that if people in those two groups are dating and both consider themselves abstinent, they are in really different places sexually. Lastly, I ask who is more protected from STI's.
