    Provides an in depth history of sex education in film, covering how health and desire were treated on screen throughout the 20th century Eberwein also offers a theoretical framework using Foucault to talk about issues of authority present in early sex ed films The last couple of chapters sort of fell apart for me in terms of significance, although seems useful for anyone who needs a list and review of sex ed films in the latter 20th century.
