Superb Opinion

  • Sex education is NOT being pulled from USA schools, I graduated High School last year, and I HAD to take sex ed AGAIN, because they passed a new law and required all students to take the new curriculum (basically they just added some LGBTQ stuff) but even IF they pulled it… “taught by someone older” sounds incredibly creepy, and dangerously close to grooming! What we need is medically accurate information that can keep us safe from unwanted pregnancies and STI’s! Practical information, like the practicing to put a condom on a banana! I couldn’t believe how difficult it was when the teacher would sorta move the banana around, and jerk it up if i touched it, like they really do! And i had NO IDEA that if you touch the condom to the penis the wrong way, you have to throw it away, because besides sperm, it could have viruses and bacteria on the tip! I didn't know that, and MY MOM is a freaking SURGEON! No, if its removed from schools, then i see an amazing idea for a business certified teachers, holding private sexual education classes where the entire syllabus is available to the parents to read and see if they approve with regular audits from an outside agency to make sure the syllabus is being adhered to, strictly! Also… Clearly you haven’t been on here long, if you think “someone older” would be remotely appropriate. By the time I reached Xper 3, I would be safe in saying that at a minimum, at LEAST fifty middle age men had made either sexually inappropriate comments to me, or outright solicitations for everything from sexting (lots of that), all the way to RW meet-ups. (And I was 17 at the time)! Guys would tell me that I had NO idea what really good sex was since I had only ever been. With “little boys” and that older guys can pleasure me in ways I couldn’t imagine, and that older guys have the stamina to pleasure me literally all night long! To which I politely replied, “That maybe true, but who actually WANTS to fuck an old man for a LONG time?” Never heard from HIM again!

  • Well Sex Ed apparently didn't work very well seeing as over 1 million teen girls get pregnant every year. Just reading on G@G I'm surprised at how many people don't use protection or that have pregnancy scares.

  • Sex education in Europe is done early and is extremely frank in showing real pictures and video and openly talking about all of it! That has caused teen sex and pregnancy's to plumet! They do cover LGBTQ briefly explaining simply "Just like a boy and a girl, so can same sex and that's OK!" Seriously that's as far as it goes! Unlike us in America where we either want to glorify it shoving it down their throats or too scared to mention it! Avoidance is not the solution! BUT if they stop teaching parents should teach but we all know how this normally goes! The parents avoid it until confronted and then can't use proper words and talk in code to the point the child leaves more confused! Other adults should not be discussing this with a child!

  • Sex education isn't being pulled from US schools and and is a legal requirement in 30 states. This is actually relatively recent law passed in 2020 as well, so unlikely to be repealed just yet. Of the states where it is not a legal requirement it is still on the curriculum, and most schools still teach it anyway, other then some faith schools.
    But yes if schools were to remove sex education, then it would be acceptable for a parent or guardian to teach the fundamentals, they'd probably do a better job of it than the school system currently is.

    • do you really think it would be best for a parent to do the teaching I know some parents that would not be the best teacher or this subject let a lone any other subject!

    • Well I'd never have my parents teach me, but the school system does a terrible job of it. All you have to do is read some of the questions here to realise it's failed most people, especially in the US. At least a parent can answer one on one questions, although I'm sure most kids wouldn't want to ask their parents any detailed questions about sex lol I learnt the fundamentals as school in the UK and it wasn't good at all, maybe because it was a posh boys school, but I still think it was better than some get these days. Yes I think an older experienced person would be good to teach sex education, but maybe parents aren't the best because of the relationship to the kid.

  • Taught the basics verbally? Of course, that is the best way. But it doesn't happen often.

  • Good…about time…guess they are going straight-up LGBT and Tranny identity indoctrination.

  • Older doesn't mean qualified. Kid's need to get the real facts not half baked ideas from parents

  • It shouldn't be pulled in my opinion. Basic sex education such as learning about what forms of protection are available, how to use them and where to acquire them is essential as far as I'm concerned.

  • Who ever does the teaching, school, parents, ideally both it needs to be factual and representative of their age and or experience.

  • Sexual education is still required in most states. Only in backward states like Florida and Texas is sex education considered bad.

  • The parent should be responsible and some basic information at school. I’m school we were not taught to abstain but to use protection. It would b better to teach all the problems kids have getting pregnant etc. my nonno told me he was shown videos of women giving birth (nothing graphic) but he said it scared all of them.

  • It's always okay with PARENTS... You are always your child (ren) first teacher or influence, it's your DUTY to teach YOUR child (ren) anything and everything to prepare them for Life ahead. 🥰

  • It always should be the parents. Sex Ed in school only teaches the mechanics of sex it doesn't teach you the consequences in the responsibility of your actions

  • From most of the questions I've been seeing right here in the past 4 or 5 years, I assumed they stopped sex ed in schools decades ago!!

  • Parents shoult take this on

  • Seriously? Like the education wasn't bad enough in the US.

    • I know it is just trying to ask a question

    • Nono, sorry, wasn't supposed to sound judgmental towards you. Forgot to answer the question xD Yes, of course if it's being pulled from school, someone else should teach it. It's important.

    • I didn't take it as being judgement I was just explaining

  • bad decision for the usa education :) but one way or another you will learn

  • @meadow4272 I think being taught by an older experienced woman is the best way to learn what you like sexually and sure is fun 😋

  • Medically accurate sexual education is critical for our youth to learn.

  • Yes it is

  • Never got sexual education

  • The only sexual education people need is biology classes in highschool.

    My sexual education was just encyclopedias, what I got in school was just dumb shit that was joke fodder for the kids.

  • When I was in school I learned from someone older and more experienced

  • Who else other than parents would teach it? Most kids learn from the internet anyway
