This instructional video is inspired by sex education videos from the 1950s. Combining contemporary pornographic footage with images of sex toys engaging in sexually explicit acts with one another, this video illustrates the awkwardness of institutionalizing sex as a topic of education for children. The sound is taken from two 1950s sex education videos in which a mother walks into her son’s room to find him masturbating. The three bodies that appear in this video deviate from the stereotypical bodies typical in the heterosexual porn genre.
Sex Education is also part of the Exquisite Corpse Video Project Volume IV: Porn & Politics.
