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?
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”.
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.”

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.’
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.
