The month of June signifies a slew of special occasions. It marks the start of swimsuit season, reminds us all to appreciate our fathers, and signifies the beginning of summer vacation. But just because June brings about the end of the school year doesn’t mean our education has to stop with it. In fact, the month of June is actually Adult Sex Ed Month (thanks to sex educator and writer Bobbie Morgan)! You might be thinking Adult Sex Ed?
