The SexEducator magazine is produced by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, in collaboration with Tel-Jeunes. It has been available free of charge to professional youth workers and high-school teachers since 2005. Each issue focuses on a specific theme and is written by a Master’s level student in sexology at Université du Québec à Montréal. Pedagogical activities are included in each issue to enable teachers and youth workers to present the theme from different angles and encourage young people to think about and work on the featured topic.

Buoyed by the positive comments we have received about the magazine, we are moving forward with this Web-based project, which enables members and readers of The SexEducator to discuss the varied themes raised in the different issues of the magazine. This site is meant to be a forum for dialogue for sex education professionals, a place where they can discuss interventions they have conducted with young people.
