“Education Is Everything”: Kandi Burruss Going Back To School To Study Sex

August 21, 2012  |  

You know you have money to blow when you decide to go back to school just to get a degree in sex.

According to her Twitter page, that’s exactly what Real Housewife of Atlanta castmember Kandi Burruss is studying right now. The singer posted on Twitter:

Of course, this news isn’t weird at all considering that Kandi has a demonstrated interest in sex. She has a show about it “Kandi Koated Nights” and a sex toy line “Bedroom Kandi”.  The next step was clearly to become a sexologist.

What’s a sexologist? Well, according to WiseGeek.com:

A sexologist is someone concerned with the scholarly investigation of human sexuality, from normal sexual development to sexual pathologies such as sexual abuse. The field of sexology is highly interdisciplinary, incorporating knowledge from a number of academic pursuits, and sexologists can work in a range of settings. Some sexologists are primarily interested in conducting studies and clinical trials to understand more about human sexuality, for example, while others offer therapy to people with sexual dysfunction, drawing upon their sexology experience to help people.

For some sexologists, a large part of their work involves educating people about human sexuality and encouraging honest discussions about issues such as communication in relationships, healthy sexual development, and methods for preventing the spread of disease.

Sounds like Kandi’s interest in the topic is more than just a passing fad and she will soon have the letters behind her name to prove it. She didn’t elaborate on whether or not she’s pursuing a certificate, undergraduate degree or Master degree. It seems like she would need an advanced degree for the field, but that may not be the case. We have to hand it to her for valuing education enough to want to educate others and not just getting by on fame. Fans are impressionable, so it will be interesting to see if more people decide to go into this field after hearing her news. Maybe Phaedra Parks will take a class or two with her.

What do you think of Kandi going back to school for sex education and clinical sexology?
