People on all sides of the sex education argument, is this a good idea or bad idea?

Charis Denison of Prajna Consulting, went on the podcast "Abby's Road" recently and told about the sex education work shops she does in public schools. One of the things she does is teach 14 year old girls how to give 'hand jobs.' She even calls this part of the workshop "hand jobs 101." She believes is they know other ways to please a boy they might be less likely to just lay down and put themselves at risk for disease and/or pregnancy. She does this in public schools in California. Sources: Thoughts? Serf, it's on the podcast linked to the Abby's Road page. It starts at about the 37:30 mark.

Sex Ed is a waste of taxpayers money. Most kids know about sex from kids in school , the internet, and television.

If that's true then it is a terrible idea. Disgusting, actually.

It's one thing to teach young teens how to be careful if they have sex, but totally another to enable and promote sexual activity. - Libertarian

She should go over what can happen because of sexual activity, and hand out condoms, not give them sermons on how to give someone a hand job. Its not right.

the Palin family shows what happens if you don't have sex education you may not like it but you wont stop it all you do is end up with pregnant daughters

I think it is a bad idea. The public schools, run by our government, have entirely too much authority. If you have the means necessary, do all that you can to limit government, and to not support any of their measures to increase their influence on the public. The government is not your friend.

I had a sex education class at my highschool, and my teacher just told us about her sexual affairs as a whore. Not joking. She told us to always have a condom in our wallet, just in case. When did they stop teaching abstinence?

I think sex education is important.. young teens need to know the risks, and how to prevent those risks from happening if they choose to have sex. They need to know the FACTS from experienced health professionals, not the crap that their friends/internet/media tells them that could have them end up with an STD/STI or... More

I don't think I'd sign my 14 year old up for that class. Thank you anyway. I think I'd rather have a more informative sex ed course that focused on puberty, physical changes, dealing with those changes, consequences of behavior, staying safe and healthy.
Answered By: fdm215 - 8/5/2009
I'd say "NO". Basic facts about disease, puberty, conception, birth control yes.

Teaching children to do what the stupidest dog can figure out by themselves. Waste of money.

Cali's get to play by a different set of rules and regulations than the rest of us! Besides that she like All State insurance, you'll be in good hands!
Answered By: Eric - 8/5/2009
They should teach the lot, depending on the age. Abstinence, birth control, safer sex. No simulations or instructionals need be involved.
