Thoughts on Sex-Ed in public high schools?

Bex1331 Bex1331
I'm interested in your thoughts on the sex education in our public high schools. What do you think should be included? What shouldn't? Are you happy with what you learned in school? What your children are learning? Below are some things that you can consider, but feel free to include others.

What forms of birth control should be included? Abstinence only or should they include information on other options?
Should Anal sex be discussed? Oral sex? to what extent?
Should gay and lesbian relationships be discussed?
Should people who are transgender be discussed?
Should giving/receiving pleasure in sex be discussed? In how much detail?

Commenting on my own post but I swear it's not for points, I just wanted to separate my opinion from my question so as to not sway peoples answers.
I feel like out sex education programs are sorely lacking, I would like to have more included in the lessons. For example talking about how to safely engage in oral and anal sex. The should even talk about pleasure in sex, I don't expect the teacher to do a whole unit on sex positions (although I'd love to take that test ) but I would like them to at least mention the clitoris (which was not on any diagrams in my textbooks. I think it's also important to explain to teenagers that porn is not an accurate depiction of sex, because so many are assuming that's exactly what it's like and it's not. I mean yea the basics are the same but porn stars are actors and they are being paid to do things that are pleasing to the camera not to them.
Another thing that is left out of many classes is LGBTQ issues and people are so uneducated about this and that feeds much of the bias.
Yes, I think it would be great if teenagers could learn these things at home from their parents, but fact it too many of them don't and I think this means that the responsibility now falls on the school.
