    Sex education has become slightly redundant nowadays as most things teenagers blurt out between each other.

    Well, there is a difference between what they will learn in school and what they will learn from watching movies. Most of them don't actually know its dangers and this is how we got "teen moms" , for example.

    Sex education should simply be this is how it works, use these methods of contraception and these are the diseases you can get if you don't.

    Anything more than that is over the top

    I think sex education is useful. In my sex education we got taught about different diseases and contraceptions.

    Although I think some people slept through my sex edcation because 1 or 2 years later people became Mothers and Fathers.

    Surely there are other pretty important things - such as the idea of consent?

    Sex Education is important but at the same time teens need to watch movies like Juno and Dallas Buyers Club, that talk about teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Also, it is highly important that the society is compassionate towards HIV + patients and pregnant teens.

    A very surprising number of people don't. Especially when you're talking about a lot of 14 and 15 year olds having sex. I'd wager a lot of them, even the majority, think of rape as 'man with a knife in an alleyway'. They may not naturallly think about the possibility of feeling forced or coerced into doing something they're not comfortable with for instance which is even more important when you're dealing with people of a vulnerable and impressionable age. Some of them might get it already, sure, but I think this is definitely a case of better safe than sorry!

    I personally don't think sex ed in this country goes anywhere near far enough...but that's regarding my own experience

    Yes, of course. If you rely on playground rumours or pornography to teach sex education to teenagers, who knows what kind of strange ideas or beliefs they could end up developing. As soon as they begin to reach puberty I think they need to know what sex is, the risks associated with it, methods of preventing those risks, the biological mechanisms, the legal issues etc.

    It should be banned entirely, such things should not be taught to anyone and should only be for a married man. Anything else promotes illegal sex and drugs

    I agree with you on that. They might not call it rape, but I have heard of stories where a guy or a girl gets the other gender drunk and have sex without permission. It is a 'kind' rape. But people should be aware of this too.

    Yes. As well as talking about preventing STIs and contraception, sex ed should talk about healthy relationships, consent, sexuality (including the asexual spectrum), gender, aromanticism, that your first sexual partner should be yourself (not how to masturbate but that it's not wrong and if you know you're own body you'll have better sex), that anal sex, oral sex, hand jobs, fingering etc. are all sex too, that there should be no script to sex...

    I strongly think that whoever taught you this is completely mistaken. You should have been taught its dangers, a real overview of 'sex' , etc. .

    No there shouldnt be any. Teach a general form of it in biology but otherwise just enforce proper separation of the sexes post 13. But they can be taught vaguely what their parental/reproductive roles will be upon attaining Graduation.
    As well as strictly enforcing study periods, hard physical punishments need to be a reality for any liaisons with the opposite sex or dalliances with alcohol, drugs, clubs. Cannot emphasis the importance of rigid, hard physical discipline for moulding the adults of the future.

    I agree with you on this, sex and everything that comes along with it is far more than just learning about contraception and how to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STIs. There is so much that one needs to be aware of in this subject and by just learning it off your own back you're highly unlikely to learn everything you should be aware of. Also sex is increasingly becoming an issue for younger teens who haven't had the opportunity or initiative to research what they should be aware of beforehand and if it was a necessity in schools to be educated on this matter, not only would it ensure everyone was knowledgeable about the subject but it also means that people would be more aware of the real truths rather than going on urban legends or made up stories they read online. I received one lesson sex education in high school and it was fairly abysmal, we were given a list of STIs that could be caught through heterosexual sex and taught how to put a condom on a banana. Now as a lesbian that lesson was fairly pointless to me and I think that homosexual sex and the risks involved in that, yes there are some albeit less than heterosexual sex, should be taught as increasing numbers of people are being more liberal with their bodies and sexualities and society and education need to reflect that and recognise the need for a more diverse sex education.

    I'm curious as to your reasoning towards your strong views? Would you like to elaborate?
