The shocking basics may have been whispered at a sixth-grade sleepover, but generations of Americans still learn the cold, hard facts about sex in school. Sex(Ed) The Movie director Brenda Goodman takes a romp through the archives in a hilarious yet humbling look at our country’s earnest attempts, primarily through film, to encourage “civilized humanity” among our nation’s youth. The film replays decades of vintage sex ed films and television moments as experts offer insights about the shifting cultural attitudes that dictated the content. This film contains (ahem) explicit footage and rather sophisticated references to sex.
