Sex School

At many universities, the Human Sexuality course is often the most popular.  A student learns the ins and outs of sexual anatomy, STI’s, pregnancy/birth, dysfunctions, and even some historical and cultural aspects of sex.

Yet what about taking it to the next level?

From books to action.

Last year at Northwestern University,  an after class presentation in Human Sexuality, went ‘live’ with a masturbation demonstration.  This didn’t go over so well and now the course has been shelved.

What if you knew you were signing up for a Human Sexuality course that included both the books and the sex.

That is what is happening near Vienna Austria, with the opening of the world’s first “School of Sex”.

Ylva Maria Thompson, the school’s headmistress, announced the opening of the Austrian International School Of Sex (AISOS), the world’s first school of practical sexuality.

The website states, “AISOS is Europe’s first school geared towards the development of sexual skills and techniques. As opposed to most schools dealing with sexuality, AISOS’ core education is not theoretical, but very practical. ..The courses at AISOS cover everything from sexual techniques to the history of sexuality.

At AISOS we want you do develop practical skills that will change not only your life, but also the lives of the people you decide to partner with.

In short, we teach the art of giving and receiving sexual pleasure.”

Check out their website: http://www.aisos.at

The website provides information in both German and English.

A few things came to mind when I found out about this new ‘sex school’:

One –  I lived in Vienna, Austria in 1993, obviously 19 years too early to attend the school- darn!!

I was lucky enough to visit Amsterdam a few times and that’s a sex thrill or ‘schooling’  just roaming the streets.

Two- Why didn’t I keep up to date on my German (as classes are held only in the German language).

Three-  I just accepted an adjunct professor position….maybe I should apply to AISOS.  To which I quickly said to myself, ‘Oh yes, I have a family and a business, and in particular a husband who I’m certain would much rather have me teach a school work class than lead a live sex presentation.’

Nevertheless, this new sex school is cutting edge to promoting sexual pleasure and education.

In the headmistress column, it states Macnab’s first three objectives of sex education are:

1. To make affection, sex, and love a constructive rather than a destructive force in modern society.

2. To develop feelings of self-identity, self-respect, and moral responsibility as an integral part of their personality and character development.

3. To understand and appreciate the sexual side of human nature psycho-sexual development may occur as normally and healthily as possible without feelings of indecency, embarrassment or undue guilt.

Sounds good to me.

Books AND Action.

Hopefully one day soon, I will return to Vienna and visit the school, for research and observation of course.

Would you sign up?                                                                                                                                                                    I would.

    That’s the kind of school where you wouldn’t care about failing. The worst that could happen is you’d get extra tuition or be “forced” to redo it the following year.

    A sex school certainly sounds like an interesting institution, but certainly not scholastic enough to be called a ‘school.’ Sex would certainly be considered a soft soft science — a flaccid science if you will, like psychology, and hardly taken seriously.

    Go to the gym and honestly talk to your partner, and sex will always be good.

      The ‘school’ does not offer a degree nor training for a field of employment, only ‘skill’ training in the sex department.
      Psychology – a soft soft science that is hardly taken seriously?!?
      Seriously?
      What would Freud say?
      Come on skeletonfingers….give it some more credit. Sometimes a cigar is more than just a cigar 🙂

        I have incredible respect for psychology, I just don’t consider it a hard science. It cannot be measured. Just like sex, somethings work for some people, some don’t work for others.

        So, what you’re saying is that when I smoke a cigar, I’m smoking more than a cigar? I should probably stop that.
