What is the difference between sex education and erotic education? Sex ed is grounded in the anatomy and physiology of the human reproductive system. Very important to know. Erotic education builds on this basic information, but goes much further. How does one apply the fundamental knowledge of sexuality in the real world of relationships, sexual identity, and gender politics? How can we become artistic, sensitive, tuned-in lovers, dancing together in mutual erotic bliss? Erotic education describes the lifelong process of developing and maturing ourselves as lovers, communicating with our partner(s) to fine-tune our ability to give and receive pleasure.
