I liked the racey topics too but I thought these are good topics. I think they are topics that there are a lot of myths and fears about. I think most young women just don't want to think about it but it's important.
Last year I was a teaching assistant for a psychology of women class. The morning of a lecture the professor called me up and said she was sick and asked if I could give a lecture. I agreed and asked what topic was hoping it was something related to what I've read (pregnancy, abuse, legal issues, harassment etc). When the prof told me it was menopause I never died. I then realized I knew very little about the topic except for what I had seen on television. I didn't have anytime to research the topic so I decided that on top of the movie that was going to be shown, I was just going to get the class to have a discussion about the topic: what they know, what they've seen their mothers go through, what's portrayed on television and what questions they have. It turned out to be a really interesting discusssion.
