The Personal is Pedagogical
How Teacher Identities Inform Students’ Experiences of Sex Education

Sexuality, Menopause, and Hormone Replacement Therapy
The anatomic, physiologic, and psychologic changes of menopause can profoundly impact sexual expression. Judicious use of hormonal therapies can be life changing for some. Educators can empower older individuals to advocate medically for themselves by advancing understanding of both the changes and possible treatments. I will offer teaching tools and further resources.

Popular wisdom holds that consensual nonmonagamy (CNM) doesn’t work, obscuring the fact that the various types of CNM can “work” in different ways for different people. This talk introduces and defines different types of CNM and explains the ways in which they might (or might not) work for various individuals.
