Good evening everyone.
Today's discussion topic is: Sex Education.
First of all, what's Sex education?
Sex education is instruction on issues relating to human sexuality, including human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, reproductive health, emotional relations, reproductive rights and responsibilities, abstinence, birth control, and other aspects of human sexual behavior.
This Journal, however, is not about discussing what sex ed is, but it circles around different questions, such as:
-When should sex ed be taught to children?
-Who should teach it?
-What should they teach?
When should sex ed be taught to children?
Ok, that's a tricky question. As we all know, every child matures (phisically) within a close range of age. (can't tell the same about their brains, since there are a lot of 7 years old boys smarter than 30 years old ones).
Where I live, it usually begins around 12, but some places starts teaching it around 15.
Might be the right age, in my opinion.
Who should teach it?
Another nice question. Parents are usually too hy to talk about penises and vaginas in front of their kids, while teachers might not be good enough, making mistakes or jumping some parts. between the two, I'd prefere parents. Otherwise, a nice pic would be a professional figure of the educator, an expert in sex education which is not afraid of teaching everything.
What should they teach?
Probably the hardest question,
Beside the obvious, how to mate and how baby are given to light, I think they should teach more.
Prevention of trasmission of STD is already taught, but 15yo might be too late.
One thing I do believe it should be taught is masturbation. How many of you heard about it during sex ed lessons?
people are still afraid about talking it in public, even if it's an awesome medicine. Masturbation should be encouraged, without teaching how to do it (we don't need visual techniques lessons).
