Relationship and Sex Education
Free to Access Reading List
Relationship and Sex Education became compulsory in UK schools from September 2020. To support this change, we have made leading research on relationship and sex education free to access. From school and youth sex education, to parent-child communication, STI prevention, and more, we are proud to promote peer-reviewed research that is facilitating the important conversation around RSE in schools, colleges and universities worldwide.
All articles are free to access through this page until 31st December 2020.
Dr. Cynthia Graham, editor of The Journal of Sex Research and Dr. Justin Lehmiller, author and Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute joined us on 21st September 2020 for an exclusive Twitter interview on the state of relationship and sex education. You can read the Twinterview HERE.
