Option éducation sexuelle
Marie-Pierre Jaury and Carine Lefebvre-Quennell
Option éducation sexuelle presents a pilot experiment: 5 workshops on sexuality in a high school in the Paris suburbs. It is not a question of laboriously trying to put a condom on a polystyrene penis – for those who had the opportunity to live this ordeal in biology class – but to start a dialogue between the teenagers and the facilitator: How do you know where a clitoris is? What is sexual intercourse and until when/what is a virgin? Do we choose to be homosexual? As we go along, the personalities and paths of each person are gradually revealed. A kaleidoscopic panorama of a generation that has many questions but also much to tell is drawn.
A high school, a classroom and a dozen teenagers who talk about sex, consent or pornography with awkwardness, humor, sincerity, curiosity… Full of freshness, intelligence and beautiful reflections in this very charming documentary, also carrying hopes on the possibility of making a real place for sexual education in the school setting – and of making young people actors of it.
