fairsexmote_72“When is it too late to say no?” ” Is it ok to nag oneself to sex?” Is it true that boys always want sex?” As part of the ÅIPI violence prevention work, these and other questions about sex and relationships are being discussed with all students in grades two in upper secondary school on Åland. The purpose of the Fair Sex workshops is to encourage discussions about sex and relationships, reciprocity, respect and equality, in order to prevent sexual violence and to promote positive sexual experiences among youth.

The project Fair Sex started in 2011. In 2012 workshops for students are complemented with educational sessions for teachers on issues such as gender inequality, violation of boundaries and sexual harassment and how to spot it and stop it.
