Kentucky summer camp teaches children to masturbate and have sex on drugs
A Kentucky-based virtual sex education summer camp taught young attendees how to masturbate, obtain an abortion, and have sex while on drugs.

The “Sexy Sex Ed” camp was a virtual camp based out of Hazard, Kentucky, that took place in the summer of 2021. The organizers have been operating sex education workshops for children since 2012, according to their website.

The camp first gained attention on Twitter Tuesday after the account Libs of Tik Tok and Manhattan Institute scholar Christopher Rufo shared information about the camp, including details about the camp curriculum, which included a workshop on masturbation in which “participants … learn techniques to make the most of their masturbation experience.”

According to its website, “Sexy Sex Ed is a workshop series that compels teenagers and people of all ages to openly discuss personal and political consent, sexual safety, and anatomy.” The age ranges for the 2021 camp were not listed on the website, and it is not known if the camp will be held again in 2022.

Using visual & performance art, open dialogue, and popular education methods, Sexy Sex Ed fills a vital gap in reproductive education as a creative, cultural healing solution in rural Appalachia,” the website says.

From July 6 to Aug. 26 of 2021, the workshop expanded to a virtual summer camp that charged attendees up to $500. Among the sessions of the camp were “The Three P’s: Pee, Poop, and Pleasure,” “Sex on Drugs,” and “Over-sexualization and Policing of Blackness.”

The lesson plan for the “Sex on Drugs” day said the workshop “will explore the nuances of engaging in sexual activity while using licit and illicit drugs.”

“Together, we will explore why people engage in sexual activity while on drugs; the nuances of substance use and consent; and harm reduction strategies around having sex on substances,” the course plan says.

Sexy Sex Ed was founded by Tanya Turner, who describes herself as “a femme, fat, queer, magical pleasure worker, educator, and artist,” according to a biography that was on Sexy Sex Ed’s website.

Headshots and biographies of Turner and the other “educators” with Sexy Sex Ed were available on the website early in the afternoon on Tuesday but were taken down sometime after 1:30 p.m. EST as tweets by Rufo highlighting the camp’s activities went viral.

Sexy Sex Ed did not respond to a request for comment.

The workshops put on by Sexy Sex Ed have been profiled by CNN, among other news outlets.
