This lesson aims to support development of awareness of situations where an erection might occur with a view to developing appropriate behaviours when this happens.

Foundation Knowledge includes awareness of public and private places and behaviours.

Generalisation ideas

  • Sorting: places where its safe to be aroused vs places where it needs to be self-managed
  • Strategy development:  add appropriate strategies specific to an individual’s situation e.g. feel aroused = go to the bathroom
  • Consequences:  what happens if you leave an erection alone? what happens if you play with an erection? how do you feel when you get aroused in public places?
  • Flipside:  how do other people feel about masturbating in public?  what does the law say about masturbating in public? how would you feel if someone started masturbating in front of you?
