This thesis illustrates the need for and the importance of more comprehensive and in-depth sexual health education in Nova Scotia. With the use of secondary sources, interviews, autoethnography, autobiographical analysis and retroactive participant observation, current sexual messages present in our society are explored through a feminist lens. It is therefore concluded that there is a need to combat these messages and replace them with more accurate and healthy depictions of sexual relationships via the implementation of better public school curricula.7
