SEXUCATION was established in 2007 by Robin Mills in an effort to provide comprehensive sexual health education to youth, women, and young women of color in particular. As a bisexual Black woman coming of age in the early 90's, my kind was not discussed in sex education classes. All the bodies were white and everyone was assumed heterosexual, leaving me and others like me invisible in terms of sex and sexuality. Feeling invisible may hinder a person from being the best they can be. In order for one to be their best, one must be healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and yes...sexually. The best way to maintain sexual health is through preventive measures like education. As such, SEXUCATION is committed to helping people Keep It Safe 'n Sexy (KISS) by promoting positive sexuality and providing folks with necessary tools to make a sexually informed decision.
