Sex and the City

Why study this module?

Through a biopsychosocial lens you can explore the world of sex and sexuality, taking in aspects of eroticisms, attraction, relationships and how we express ourselves sexually. Your learning sessions will introduce key concepts and methodologies which provide a solid academic structure to this fun, exciting and very revealing course. You will explore the expression of sexuality through art, technology, film, cinema, literature and fashion. You’ll also get to head out into the City on field trips to explore how different facets of human sexuality are represented in London.
