    What should be taught in Sex Ed?

    I always thought sexual education should be taught by the parents, not by the school system, so to me I don't think it should be a thing at all, but since it is... I think they should teach on sexting because that is a very common thing with teens now and "sending nudes" can be very dangerous. I know it sounds silly but I have heard of so many girls between the ages of 13 and 19 sending pictures and regretting it or not having any ideal what consequences may follow doing it.

    What are your thoughts on sex ed? What should or shouldn't be taught?

    Here in France we have sex ed in middle school, we see animal copulation and STD prevention.
    But it's lacking : NOBODY care about how sea urchins do it and deers are close to us but it's not us !
    So i think we you should teach HUMAN copulation (it's not hard to say it in a neutral way), keep STD prevention, explain contraception and how it works (because having a box of condoms in class is useless cause we don't know how to put them on) and explain a lot of small other things.
    Also i think that teaching it in middle school is a great idea.
    Never overestimate mankind.

    I was taught sex ed in 5th grade, I was 11 I believe. We were separated (boys from girls) and taught about our own parts and then taught about how they function together. Nothing on condoms, very little on STDs, and nothing on any other birth control. What age is middle school there?

    It depends but i would say between 10 and 14.
    Pretty much the time when we hit puberty, they try to teach us that at the time we become fertile so that we know what happens.
    And yes i contraception and protection is a crucial topic, i would even say it's a public health matter.
    Also sex ed class are mixed just like others.

    For the sake of kids in the US I hope things have changed. I can't believe that this is dependent on school systems though, here anyways. Like I said originally, parents should teach their kids about this stuff. Or at the very least teach them what the school systems won't or don't.

    In France it is part of the national education program and yeah it's rather scary that every school teaches what it wants.
    Parents should teach that too, but i can't tell for this because i don't know how a normal family works.

    They should teach... sexual education. I know, that's a pretty silly answer, but I don't think the subject should be complicated. Back in the day my class was called PSHE: Personal, Social and Health Education. The class wasn't just sex ed, but a lot of it covered that. And there's no sex ed without cringeworthy videos. It's a shame I can't remember many of them, but I recall them trying to personify condoms.

    Aside from the lame videos we had a more hands-on approach to condoms. All I can say is that I was somewhat amused by all the girls competing to put a condom on a banana correctly. It was as if some of them already knew how to do it. As ridiculous as it was I actually think that was pretty useful. More kids need to get used to contraception. There are still plenty of teenage mothers. I'd even support showing a video about the dangers of teenage pregnancy to scare them out of doing it bareback.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    I've heard it's best to teach kids about sex when they start to get curious about it and they begin to feel 'shame' about their own nudity.
    Apparently the idea is to catch them young enough to be open and earnest with their questions (willing to learn), so that we can foster healthy notions of sexuality early.

    And I think that's a good metric.

    If you look at the repressive/puritanical culture surrounding sex in the States (especially where I was raised) you see a lot of recurring issues: shame, teen pregnancy, and casual rape cultures.
    Unless we discuss sex honestly and openly - including its social realities beyond reproduction - we're going to continue to send our kids into adolescence and adulthood with minds full of misinformation and a severe lack of understanding about what healthy sexual relationships are.

    I think parents should take up the task of teaching their kids about everything on sex. The moment they allow their kids to have cell phones, they give them the license to explore the world. They are able to watch funny clips online, stimulating their sexual urges. They are also able to text opposite sex pals and eventually, this leads to fornication. However, if parents taught their kids about the whole thing, I believe the cases of premature sex would be minimized.

    "Premature" sex is not the problem, it's teenage pregnancy and STDs.
    They can do it if they want, but they must protect themselves while doing so.
    Also i think it's extremely dangerous to ask the parents to do it : religion, lack of knowledge, personal reluctance and others are very dangerous when it comes to the kid's sexual and biological education. The best place to avoid these being school.
