HLTH 251 is an easy, interesting, extremely valuable course. I learned about human reproductive anatomy, menstruation, contraception, STIs, theories of human sexuality, LGBTQ+ issues, healthy communication between partners, consent, sexual techniques, kinks, and more. Dr. Tidey's non-judgmental, matter-of-fact lecture style made these sometimes uncomfortable topics so much easier to talk about. Anyone who wants to have sex would benefit from this course. The four multiple-choice non-cumulative midterms were very easy to pass and were designed to test you on information Dr. Tidey thought was important to have.
While all information in lectures and assigned textbook chapters was testable, reading the textbook chapters in full was not necessary to do well, as I found that most of the most important information was covered in lectures. If you don't have time to read the entire chapter, at least skimming it will help you pick up some more points on the exam.

Everyone should take HLTH 251. It was by far one of my favourite courses I have ever taken. You get to learn about so many different areas of sexuality, from sex work to STIs, from puberty to ageing, from cultural differences to LGBTQ+ experiences. Charlotte Loppie was an amazing lecturer—she was very approachable, candid, and downright hilarious sometimes. The tests were all multiple choice and very easy if you had paid attention to the lectures and read the textbook.
You could probably still get a decent grade without using the textbook at all, but it's so easy to achieve a high grade if you do use it, so I would recommend putting the effort in to read it.
