Topics addressed include contemporary prevention education models for topics such as sexual deviance and violence, pornography, sexual harassment and abuse, sexual ethics, sexuality education, spirituality and religion as it relates to sexuality issues, the media portrayal of sexuality and relationships, and critically analyzing advertising that uses sexual imagery to sell non-sexually relevant products.
