The history of sexuality starts with the history of humanity. It is interesting that although the history of sexuality is so old, sexual education gained importance only in the 20th century. Sexuality-related issues are usually issues that are avoided and are preferred not to be talked over and mentioned in our country. Hence, we cannot talk about a sexual education policy throughout the country. However, it should not be forgotten that sexual education has many individual and social benefits and a serious need for sexual education can be felt particularly in our country.
