A RSE reading list

Sometimes people ask me what reading I recommend around RSE, so I thought I would put together a bit of a list. 

Key (free) articles and reports 

National and International RSE Guidance 

Some RSE teaching resources not written by me

Recommended longer reads and background issues connected to RSE

YouTube content related to RSE

Academic articles around RSE (some behind a paywall)

Open access
Behind a paywall

RSE topics 

Emotional wellbeing
RSE and disability focused resources 

Physical teaching resources I recommend

In person teaching
  • Compact contraception display kit Health Education
  • O-Cube Health Education
  • Condoms bulk buy Pasante* 
    (The cost of condom demonstrations can quickly add up so always look out for the big boxes usually called "clinic packs". Also flavoured condoms can help young people feel more confident to touch condoms in a classroom demonstration)
  • Condom Demonstrators*, Another and another
    (For education I recommend buying a few different ones, different shapes and sizes and colours to emphasize that variation is normal and the same condoms can fit on all of them)
  • Sexual Dams EXS

A good question about Aims

I was recently asked this question and it made me think long and hard. Read my response below it. *I would like to know more about your overall goal - in other words what is it you are trying to change. Do you consider it is more about raising awareness or changing behaviour (I am sure there are elements of both) and are you clear about the changes you want to see as a result of what you do - it will be very hard to measure the effect/impact of what you are doing without knowing this. I would say that changing behaviour is my goal, firstly by changing attitudes towards sex and relationships and secondly by equipping them with skills that change their behaviour to stay safer. For me the 3 changes I want to see are - a greater recognition of the emotional impact of sexual activity - a delay of a young persons first sexual experience - a greater proportion of young people using protection correctly when they are sexually active My biggest worry is how to measure these three changes?
