BELLINGHAM, WA – A sex shop owner in Washington state who also happens to be the director of her local school district Board of Education has informed her community that she will begin offering courses at her place of business in “sexual pleasure” and “safer sex” for children as young as 9 years old.

Jenn Mason, owner of sex shop WinkWink in Bellingham and school board director for the Bellingham School District, recently announced an event called the “Uncringe Academy” while being interviewed on a local radio station, and said that she will be instructing pre-teens and teens in classes such as “sexual anatomy for pleasure” and “safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities.”

“The class for 9 to 12 year-olds is an introduction to topics related to relationships, puberty, bodies, and sexuality,” she said. “We focus on what makes healthy vs. unhealthy friendships and romantic relationships, the science of how puberty works, consent and personal boundaries, defining ‘sex’, and discussing why people may or may not choose to engage in sexual activities.”

Mason will be the instructor in the classes, which will cater to various age groups, including one for children aged 9 through 12, and another for teens aged 13 through 17. The curriculum includes courses such as “What IS sex? Kinds of solo and partnered sexual activities,” “Sexual anatomy for pleasure and reproduction,” “Gender and sexual identities,” “Safer sex practices for all kinds of sexual activities,” and more.

“Uncringe Academy” is said to offer “honest, supportive, and inclusive sex education classes to help young people of all genders and sexual identities understand this important part of their life.”

When asked if teaching courses in sexuality to small children was appropriate during her radio interview, Mason stated that it is “not generally covered as a main topic in this course except as it relates to consent, communication, and safety,” and added that the definition of “sex” can vary based on one’s personal identity.

“While some people think of sex as only being when a penis goes in a vagina, ‘sex’ can really be any activity that a person does with themselves or others to become aroused,” she said. “There’s no such thing as ‘real’ sex, and it’s OK if your definition of sex is different from someone else’s.”
