    Who is sang it shouldnt? I ll repeat, I dont even have problems with all sex ed classes starting with "having no sex is the beat way to avoid all the risks of having babie and sexually transmited diseases" as a mantra on every single class, as long as the spend the rest of the time telling the class all the stuff most of em will actually need to know and apply.

    I agree with you, but these are issues best left to the conscience of the student. Sex education class should be a safe, non-judgmental place to discuss the pragmatic issues of sex, which cannot be achieved if we focus on nothing but the morality of premarital sex. Comprehensive sex education, such as the type I had, does discuss the risks at length. I have photos of horrific genital conditions etched in my memory forever. it also does not ignore or avoid the subject of abstinence, it's just that there's not much to say about it other than "not having sex is the most reliable method of birth control and disease prevention". Sure, and not leaving the house is the most reliable way of preventing the flu. We still need to learn about washing our hands, right?

    Good point!

    I would also point out that even those who choose to abstain until marriage need to learn about the nuts and bolts. Birth control, regular check-ups, diseases, sexual ethics, reproduction and fetal development, puberty and menstruation, etc. it's inhuman to leave kids in the dark about all this stuff, and a certain recipe for extreme psychological stress when life presents them with experiences they know absolutely nothing about. How many girls have been terrified they were dying simply because nobody bothered to mention menstruation to them before it happened? How many married couples have gotten pregnant sooner than they would have liked, or more often, to lack of information about birth control?

    My great grandmother had sixteen children. Nevertheless, my grandmother knew absolutely nothing about pregnancy and infant care when she got married, and wasn't tipped off by her parents or older sisters about menstruation. I think anyone who is yearning for a return to these "simpler" times is not remembering them right.

    I have a friend that abstained for long time. Given the moment, she was in love but was also very horny, quite directly she wanted to have sex, looked at the issue from another perspective, and admitted most if her reasons where not really "moral" but came from the shame people (this case her mother) put on losing virginity before marriage.

    So, even when you think you will abstain you CAN change your mind. So its good you know the sex ed stuff.

    Before you get into a car and drive you have to know how to operate a vehicle as well as the rules of the road. Sex is no different.

    Yes, that is true. Studies have found that the virginity pledge and promise ring tends have no impact on the likelihood of teens having sex. My God, just look at the walking disaster we call Britney Spears. She used to be the poster child for abstinence. Briefly.

    And now thinking back it would have done her well to know that oral sex is still risky. I assume she didnt know that...

    Totally. Most kids seem to think it is safe unless told otherwise emphatically. Wishful thinking! Also, they seem to develop the false impression that only skanky people have diseases. In fact, more promiscuous people are correspondingly more likely to protect themselves. Those who consider themselves and their partners "pure" or "chaste" are more likely to choose a form of birth control that does not protect against diseases when they get into a new relationship.

    I would rather explore the rules of the road for myself without the need of an instructor.

    This is what they teach males in sex ed who are 11-14 years of age. Don't have anal it will make your dick fall off. Also you can get aids if you don't wrap up. Don't have sex with a girl while she is on her period.

    They basically use scare tactics to tell people not to have sex and I always wondered what they taught females. I would like a female to post with what her sex ed class was like, because she was probably getting taught good hygiene.

    All of my sex ed classes were co-ed. So what they taught the guys they taught the girls.
    My 6th grade sex ed involved basic anatomy.
    My 8th grade sex ed(at the height of AIDS) was "Left is right and right is wrong."
    While my 10th grade sex ed was the video of the banana.

    Like I said I learned more from my mother when I was 7 than I did in any public schooling.
    Well, her and the peep hole into my aunt's bedroom. :cover:

    Yeah, my classes were not co-op. I learned more about my own penis than i did in 6th and 7th grade.

    I can think of a very foul comment that has do with “your mom”, but I’m more mature than that and won’t use it here.

    And yet not mature enough to go without mentioning said comment. A well tamed child.

    For the sake of others, an instructor isn't a bad idea.

    We would rather spare you and others the effect of such naivity.

    I could honestly care less what others have to think about sex.

    No, I mean, it's in an incredibly insane notion that people who haven't been instructed and tested about driving should just be driving around.
