Sex Education.
Williams, Sue
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v17 n2 p217-19 1991
This discussion of sex education for individuals with intellectual disabilities outlines Delys Sergeant's "coat hanger theory," which involves three coats or phases of sexuality: a physiological stimulus response coat; a reproductive coat; and a coat of attitudes, values, and self-esteem. Influences acting on individuals' sexuality include family, culture, religion, environment, media, peers, education, and experience. (JDD)
