    So, what are your views on sex education? Comprehensive sex education generally entails information about reproduction, contraception, abstinence and various other aspects of sex/sexuality. Abstinence-only is what the name implies, and the other two are clear enough.

    Comprehensive sex education all the way. It's best if kids know how to protect themselves from diseases and pregnancy when becoming intimate(especially if they not in monogamous relationship) with their partner(s).

    Comprehensive Sex Education. It's one of the most important things you can learn in school.

    Comprehensive. No matter what, some people are going to want to have pre-marital sex. Regardless of how many times you drill "pre-marital sex is bad", "don't smoke", "drugs are bad", etc. into children's minds, it can't always overcome their sense of curiosity or peer-pressure. The more kids know, the better prepared they will be for future situations. I also think that, although it is very uncomfortable and not something anyone looks forward to, parents need to sit down and discuss these sorts of things with their children. I have far more respect for my parents than my teachers, and I am more likely to take what they say seriously. (Of course, if parents would just sit down and talk or interact with their children more often, that would also help a lot of other problems beyond the scope of this thread.)

    If a religion wants to teach abstinence only during Sunday School, that's fine, as long as the kids still get to learn about the rest of it somewhere else.

    Comprehensive. I think YodaJeff and MariahJSkywalker pretty much summed up my views on the subject. I only want to add two things as a future teacher of this very subject. First, I think the school should have a good dialogue with parents in regards to this and explain what topics will be dealt with during which years (you need to return to sex education a number of times throughout school as the children grow). Secondly, sex education can become more interesting if it involves social, moral and biological aspects and is related to other dilemmas that kids and teenagers face.

    Tell it my teacher. i had something like it, but she told us lots of storys about don't wear short skirts becouse boys could be nervous. Everyone was educated itself, usually from magazines.

    Comprehensive. Extreme ignorance is never a good thing the first time someone has a sexual experience.

    Comprehensive Sex Education. It should have an abstinence component, but you need to give other information also.

    Even if you don't want to have pre-marital sex, what's wrong with knowing ways to protect yourself? :confused:

    It's just like the first aid. No one plans to have an accident ;) Well that wasn't the best example... But you know what I mean.

    Comprehensive. Abstinence is more trouble than it's worth. Teenagers are going to be teenagers, no matter what religious ideals are imposed on them, so it's better they know what they're doing.

    Would you buy a CAR without test driving it first ?? o_O

    Why do you think that people always call their vehicles females.... especially when they break down... [face_laugh]

    Try before you buy... I always say.

    Comprehensive sex ed should be taught. I grew up not knowing what a vagina looked like because of poor sex education. [face_frustrated

    Comprehensive. It makes no sense to teach abstinece-only, since in reality it doesn't happen that way.

    Comprehensive, at our school we were OFFICIALY being taught that in Grade 5 but in Grade 4 our teacher spoke about it for four whole hours Going through break/recess. Her views were that, it happened to create you and me. So some Dumb@$$ asked her about Surrogate birth, she took another hour and a half to do that, at least we didn't get homework that day lol,[face_laugh]

    My school sexual education was like: condoms are bad and pills cause cancer. That was really sad. :(

    Comprehensive. They talked about everything in my sex ed class. Though they never came out and said how sex was performed. i.e. penetration.
