Sex Un-Educated

For many who grew up in America public Sex Education did a lot more harm than good. When you’re taught that sex is not a recreational activity—unless you’re a disease-ridden whore—and condoms don’t work (if you have sex, you WILL get pregnant). Let’s just say, it’s a lot to overcome.


Sex education is broad term that encompasses a wide range of topics that relate to human sexual anatomy, sexual intercourse, sexual reproduction, reproductive health, reproductive rights, contraception, and other facets of human sexual behavior. Sex education can be a part of school programs but it can also be informally taught by parents or guardians or through various public health campaigns.
As aforementioned sex education can be taught informally, such as discussing the matter with parents or friends. It can also be imparted by religious leaders, advocate groups, government campaigns or through mass media. The subject can also be effectively delivered through sex self-help authors, newspaper and magazine articles, or through a number of sex education websites.


Hah. You've got a lot of good points in your article.


This is an amazing article that many MANY people would benefit from reading. This is pretty much my experience with sex "education" too, besides the deflowering part, and I'm 22 and only one year into dispelling the horrible feelings and stigma connected within my psyche, to sex. It's difficult sometimes to understand those with authority aren't always the ones in the right. It's about time we give kids today a real education... They're gonna have sex whether we want them to or not, they might as well be properly prepared.


In so many ways, I agree that sex-ed is a good thing, as so many parents neither feel comfortable with teaching it to their children, or, do not. Unfortunately, also with media's focus on sex, younger generations are being exposed to sex, and are not educated on the facts of it. I was fortunate enough to have a mother who did teach me at an early age about sex, but also believed in waiting until marriage (which I did not), although as I became older she recognized that it is just a part of my lifestyle. As long as I don't bring it to her in discussion (unless, of course, I should have a problem) she will just let it be.

But the way that sexual education is taught, does, unfortunately also preach that sex is wrong, etc., just as you mentioned in your article.

This is so well written, and really hits home!


I would have to agree that during my high school days and sex ed were miss informed, that if you did anything you would be diseased, wind up knocked up and he would leave you. Because of the way things were taught in school and the way my parents were if you do anything and we find out we will push statutory rape charges on him. Due to pure pressure my junior year in high school i gave in to the guy i was dating. No protection didn't even think about it, he taught me a lot while we were together and taught me to enjoy the pleasure of the connection we had together. I felt safe when i was with him and enjoyed the sexual experience, but in the back of my head i still heard the rape thing, and your gonna get knocked up in my parents voices. That is how i learned my sex education, school was very veg and didn't go into telling how things were done. All that they were really preaching was abstinence. I hand no education on sex what so ever from home other then the monthly cycle. When you grow up with a lot of things in your head and hearing over and over to tend to believe what is said, you build a wall and think sex is dirty. When you should be exploring and enjoying to see what it is that you like and who you like to be with. We were raised to only have sex in marriage and for pro creating. It wasn't something your suppose to enjoy and do other things with in the relm.
