Best professors I've ever had!
Dr. Asencio is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of sexuality. For me, I thought I knew everything there was to know about sexuality - after taking this class, I know that is impossible. You learn so much through this class, including so many things that I consider essential to knowing just for your own information. If you want to do research in this area or know more about this area, this class is a must-have. If you are highly conservative or afraid of learning about the human body, then I would say this class is probably not for you. This class covers basic biology, gender perceptions, media/sexuality, history of sexuality, and many other areas. The class has assignments and multiple choice exams, which should be easy for you if you go to class. If you take this class, you would WANT to go to class, so don't even worry about whether you want to show up, you will.

Marysol makes it incredibly easy to learn large amounts of information simply from attending class. She provides students with many materials so you can get as much or as little out of the class as you please. She ALWAYS answers student's questions during class, and makes every attempt to make things clear (which can be hard to do in a sexualities class). What I like most is that she starts class with a foundation of understanding human sexuality through biology, which many of us unfortunately did not receive education on at any point during our lives. If you go to class, you will be interested in everything she talks about. She also uses a variety of media to engage the class in critical thinking. She is an amazing professor.

Marysol Asencio is the best professor I have had at UConn. You will learn so much about sex in this class. It should be a requirement. She is one of the top researchers in her field and is brilliant. You don't have to buy the book but she does put up articles on webct that you should read. You also have to do some assignments but they are easy and help your grade. The exams are simple if you go to class. The exams as based completely off the lectures so go to class! The exams are multiple choice and and some questions are tricky. I highly recommend taking this class. You will not regret it.

I had her for human sexuality. She is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She is funny and uses many movies in her class to aid in her teaching. Her lectures are very organized and her exams are not tricky at all - If you know the information, you'll do well, and it's easy to study because the material is interesting.
