How to Be a Part of Becca's Sex Ed Comeback Tour in 5 Simple Steps

Sex Ed Bootcamp. Circa 2009.

Sex Ed Bootcamp. Circa 2009.

As many of you may know, I haven't taught sex ed on a regular basis since before grad school. (Hella whack. I know.)

Luckily for me, the folks at City College of San Francisco just happened to be hiring Human Sexuality Instructors right around the time I planned to move back to the Bay from NYC. When I found I out they were interested, I hopped on a plane from NYC, suited up, and rocked an interview. Early this week, I was given my first teaching assignment.

In other words, this sexuality expert is officially back in the game. I'd love for you to join me on my comeback tour!

All you have to do is enroll in the Human Sexuality course I'm teaching on Thursdays from 6p - 9p!

Just complete the 5 simple steps below:

Step 1. Check yo’ schedule.

Are you free from 6-9 (heh) on Thursday nights?

Free? Move on to step 2.

Not Free? There are three other classes that still need students:

Monday/Wednesday: 1:10p - 2:25p

Tuesday/Thursday: 8:10a - 9:25a

Tuesday/Thursday: 12:40p - 1:55p

Want to take one of these three classes? Move on to step 2!


Step 2. Be a CCSF student or become a CCSF student.

If you’re already a CCSF student, skip ahead to  Step 3.

Not a student? Applying is easy!  Click here!

(And you can ignore all that stuff about orientations if you don’t plan to take more than 2 classes.)


Step 3. Contact the Department Chair, Lauren Muller, To Get Your Add Code!!

You'll need the add code to add the class, so make sure you get it before you try to register!

Lauren can be reached at, or at 415-239-3854.

Have the following info ready:

CRN, SEC, and Course Day/Time.  

For my course the CRN is 31034, SEC is 501.  Thurs, 6-9.
(For the other sections, you can look up the CRN and SEQ by clicking here!)


Step 4. Register for the class you’ve chosen using the add code.

The deadline to register is January 30th, so make sure you hop on this opportunity ASAP.

Use the CRN to find the course, and the add code to make sure you can actually register.

If you have any issues adding the course, get in touch with Lauren!


Step 5. Show up for class!

Bask in the warm glow of sexuality knowledge and legendary comebacks.

If you're not a CCSF student, but know someone who is, please forward this post to them! 

Thanks in advance for registering, spreading the word, and helping a sister out!!

Keep Thinking,

Fight the Stupid: Sex Education is Dangerous

Thanks for the inspiration, Rep. Steve Toth (The Woodlands).

I've always been confused by opposition to honest, open, and straightforward sexuality education. The communication of this opposition is often more perplexing than the opposition itself.

As a highly trained sex educator for helllllllla years, it was my mission to teach students sex ed in a way that respected the fact that they would eventually become adults living in a democratic society.

In other words, I taught them with respect for the fact that someday they would be free to make their own choices. And with the zillion choices that sexuality brings to the table, I thought the only responsible thing to do as an adult was to help them face some of those choices head-on while they were in my class.

Call me crazy for thinking that to teach sexual problem solving ... you actually have to talk about sex ... and let students solve their own riddles. (I also call that teaching young people how to handle freedom ... but that's another story for another day.)

Anyway, I could write all day long about the merits of open, honest, and straightforward sex education. But I think I'll let some former students of mine do the talking for me. In 3 short minutes, they say more than I ever could.

 Keep Thinking
