SOMGEN 130: Sexual Diversity and Function Across Medical Disciplines

Focus is on the development of personal and professional skills to address medical and health issues related to human sexuality across a broad and diverse range of ages, gender, sexual orientation, sexual practices, and sexual function. Guest lectures will cover sexual issues from multiple medical disciplines and health perspectives of children (pediatric), adolescents, and young, middle-aged and older (geriatric) adults (geriatric). Consideration of sociocultural (predominantly U.S) norms is explored, including religious values and taboos, and sexual practices ranging from ¿stereotypically normal¿ to asexuality, celibacy, polyamory, and kink, etc. Emphasis is given to medical issues, e.g. the impact of specific medications, hormonal therapies, medical procedures, disabilities such as spinal cord injury, and treatments on sexual function and other issues that one might encounter in a general or specialty medical setting. Each week will include an 80-minute (Tuesday) class with a pair o more »

SOMGEN 150Q: Challenging Sex and Gender Dichotomies in Biology and Medicine

This course explores and challenges the physiological basis for distinguishing human "males" and "females", expands the concepts of "intersex" beyond reproductive anatomy/physiology (i.e. beyond the genitalia), and discusses some known consequences of "gender biases" in medical diagnoses and treatments. The influence of gender (sociocultural) "norms", i.e. gendered behaviors and relations, on human biology is juxtaposed with the role of biological traits on the construction of gender identity, roles and relationships, thereby focusing on the interactions of sex and gender on health and medical outcomes. Problems that may arise by labeling conditions that vary in incidence, prevalence and/or severity across the "male-female" spectrum as "men's" or "women's" health issues will be discussed. In addition, the importance of recognizing the spectrum of sex and gender, as well as sexual orientation, in clinical practice from pediatric to geriatric populations, will be highlighted, with consideration of varying perspectives within different race/ethnic, religious, political, and other groups.

SOMGEN 160: Flip the Script

This course is a sexual assault resistance education course designed specifically for university women. The course is based on theory, research evidence, and best practices for helping women resist acquaintance sexual assault. The course consists of four core components in which information is provided and skills are taught and practiced, with the goal of being able to asses risk, overcome barriers in acknowledging danger, and engage in effective verbal and physical self-defense. The social script we too often hear says:nWomen should live in constant fear of sexual violence. nWomen must sacrifice their freedom to dress how they want, go where they want, and socialize how they want to avoid sexual assault. nIf a woman is sexually assaulted, she is at least partially to blame. nIt is a man's responsibility to initiate the sexual activity that he wants. nnDo you think this social script is wrong? We sure do. Let's flip the script. nnThis class will have one lecture during the first week of classes (specific time and class location will be set by your section instructor). Then this course will break into sections.
