When sex education is online, online gaming can be more important than ever
The idea that video games are somehow an antidote to real-world sex education could be a little premature.
That may be why the popular online sex education site GameFAQs is launching a new “Online Ed” section on Monday, designed to bring a more real-life perspective to the games they teach.
The site, founded by GameFAQ founder and former porn star Emily Nussbaum, will offer sex education for anyone to play, including people who don’t have a place to go to.
It’s the latest step in a push by the gaming industry to tap into the growing market for education and entertainment.
As more Americans look to find their own, offline-only education, more schools, companies and parents are looking to offer online lessons.
And as online sex ed has become increasingly popular, it’s become a growing industry.
While it can be difficult to find a school that offers sex ed online, it can often be done with the help of game guides and online classes.
But the real power of sex education isn’t so much the content as the way it can help students learn about relationships.
GameFAQ is not the first game-based sex education company to tackle this issue, as parents have been asking for help online.
For the past several years, the National Association of State Boards of Education has offered the GameFAQ guide on how to get the most out of games with tips on what to expect from games, how to play them effectively and how to find the best sites to play with your kids.
For teachers, the guide can be especially useful for teachers who may be hesitant to talk about their sex education because they aren’t sure how to approach it.
“For teachers who are in a new environment, we’re really excited to have an opportunity to get involved in the community and learn about all of the different types of sex educators, and what kinds of topics they teach,” said Christina O’Brien, vice president for the Association of School Administrators.
In recent months, GameFAQ has been working to expand its reach.
The company is launching new sections on its website to bring in more parents, parents-to-be, and parents-in-training.
“With our online ed section, we hope to build a larger, more engaged community,” O’Brian said.
“It’s going to be a really great way for parents to get into the process and learn more about what to do if they are having a conversation about their sexual health.”
There are currently about 1.2 million sex ed teachers in the U.S., according to the American Association of Sex Educators.
And it’s hard to find any game that does more to address the sexual education needs of parents and teachers than the upcoming Sex and the City series, which premieres on Hulu next week.
The show has focused on the “recovery” from the series finale of the show’s seventh season, and its new installment will delve into issues like the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections and HIV.
“What we’ve done with our new section is really bring the focus to the issues that have been most discussed on social media and have been the most pressing,” Otero said.
It will also feature content about sex education, as well as more information about different forms of health care, including mental health.
“We’re really focused on getting the word out about sex, and the health risks associated with having sex,” Oleson said.
The new section will be a good fit for teachers looking to share their thoughts and opinions on sex education with the general public, O’Brien said.
Sex education is also becoming more important to educators and parents, as more and more schools are adding video games to their curriculum.
For instance, the Chicago Public Schools is considering introducing a game about a parent’s role in their children’s education, according to The Chicago Tribune.
That game will be called “My School,” and will be available to all students through the school’s online games portal.
The CPS hopes to open the game to teachers this fall, and it will be up to parents to choose whether to download it.
But parents have an important role in shaping the content.
“The important thing to understand about sex ed is that we have to teach children how to be responsible for their actions and have empathy for others,” said Krista Kuehn, a teacher at the school.
“I think that’s really important.
I think that if we don’t teach them how to act responsibly and be respectful of other people, then we’re not going to teach them anything about their own bodies.”
In the wake of the Game FAQ’s launch, the association is also launching a video on the topic that it hopes will give parents more information.
The video, titled “Sex and the Creator,” is being made by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
It explores how sex ed works, including how to talk to your child about sexual health and consent.
