The workshop started sketching out a definition of sexuality and the different themes that fall into that category, and the facilitators made sure to include the youth bringing their own definitions to the table, and asking whatever question that might be related to sexuality.
During the workshop a lot of comical personal anecdotes related to children’s understanding of the body and corporal development were shared, and these amusing moments seemed to contribute to the mood and level of interest in the youth. Another part of the workshop consisted in mini-games or other activities to clarify the theme, and even though the light went out in the middle of the activities, the youth continued interestedly using pocket lights or mobile phones.
As mentioned, themes like sex, masturbation, gender, corporal development and so on, are very intimate for a lot of us, but none the less they are important to discuss, and precisely because they are often taboo, it is important to provoke conversation and awareness on such theme. The workshop was a great experience for us, and the feedback we received was that it had been informative, interesting, applicable and not at least fun.
