Promoting Sexual Literacy is founder, Mark Schoen, Ph.D.’s motto, and he certainly lives up to what he aims for! Sex Smart Films is a sex educator’s dream. Designed to be a one stop online location for hard to locate visual aids, you can gather vintage films, clips of famous sexologists being interviewed, and the latest in sexual studies.

Sex Smart Films: The best resource on the web for sex education.
One of the most interesting people in the field of sexuality education is Dr. Mark Schoen. He has used his talent for film making and his PhD in Human Sexuality Education to bring the two together in a unique and brilliant way.
I have found SexSmartFilms to be a most important teaching resource. It provides the best and widest collection of sexual health films. If you are teaching human sexuality SexSmartFilms will be a bonus for your students.
Besides having access to some of the most important films in the field, I also engage the students in the site. For example, I have the students view the collection of safer sex ads from forty five countries around the world. The students view a few dozen of the advertisements and then compare and contrast these to each countries teen pregnancy and HIV rates. It is an eye-opening activity which offers students a broad international perspective on how other cultures are dealing with sexual health issues. By viewing the collection of ads from around the world, students have the opportunity to question assumptions about culture and sexuality, and to learn from societies that have different solutions to similar problems.
